Product description


‘The overall presentation makes the book suitable for a course for advanced undergraduate students.’ Zentralblatt MATH

‘Learning algebraic number theory is about the least abstract way to learn about important aspects of commutative ring theory, as well as being beautiful in its own right too. This text is ideally suited to the learner of both of these, with clear writing, a plentiful supply of examples and exercises, and a good range of ‘suggested reading’. … I look forward to reading and learning from this book in greater detail. The features which make it attractive are worth listing: the intrinsic fascination of the results; the balance between clearn theory and dirty calculation (the latter essential for developing familiarity with the local terrain, the former for appreciating an arial view of the whole route); the balance between calculation dependent upon the depth of theory and those details dependent on simple algebraic and trigonometric identities and results from elementary number theory; a very full quota of exercises and further reading.’ The Mathematical Gazette

‘This is a very good textbook on algebraic number theory for beginners. … Its most appealing feature is the very large number of examples it contains. Their abundance provides a lot of hands-on experience and has the power to transform the reader’s understanding of basic notions into active knowledge.’ Monatshefte für Mathematik

‘This book provides a nice introduction to classical parts of algebraic number theory.… The text is written in a lively style and can be read without any prerequisites. Therefore the book is very suitable for graduate students starting mathematics courses or mathematicians interested in introductory reading in algebraic number theory. The book presents a welcome addition to the existing literature.’ EMS Newsletter
