Galois' theory of algebraic equations by Jean-Pierre Tignol( Book )

57 editions published between 1980 and 2016 in English and French and held by 1,422 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The book gives a detailed account of the development of the theory of algebraic equations, from its origins in ancient times to its completion by Galois in the nineteenth century. The appropriate parts of works by Cardano, Lagrange, Vandermonde, Gauss, Abel, and Galois are reviewed and placed in their historical perspective, with the aim of conveying to the reader a sense of the way in which the theory of algebraic equations has evolved and has led to such basic mathematical notions as 'group' and 'field'. A brief discussion of the fundamental theorems of modern Galois theory and complete proofs of the quoted results are provided, and the material is organized in such a way that the more technical details can be skipped by readers who are interested primarily in a broad survey of the theory"--
Algebra and number theory : proceedings of a conference held in Fez, Morocco( )

15 editions published between 1999 and 2000 in English and held by 1,204 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This comprehensive reference demonstrates the key manipulations surrounding Brauer groups, graded rings, group representations, ideal classes of number fields, p-adic differential equations, and rationality problems of invariant fields - displaying an extraordinary command of the most advanced methods in current algebra."--BOOK JACKET. "Containing over 300 references, Algebra and Number Theory is an ideal resource for pure and applied mathematicians, algebraists, number theorists, and upper-level undergraduate and graduate students in these disciplines."--BOOK JACKET
Geometric methods in the algebraic theory of quadratic forms : summer school, Lens, 2000 by Oleg T Izhboldin( Book )

21 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 478 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The geometric approach to the algebraic theory of quadratic forms is the study of projective quadrics over arbitrary fields. Function fields of quadrics have been central to the proofs of fundamental results since the renewal of the theory by Pfister in the 1960's. Recently, more refined geometric tools have been brought to bear on this topic, such as Chow groups and motives, and have produced remarkable advances on a number of outstanding problems. Several aspects of these new methods are addressed in this volume, which includes - an introduction to motives of quadrics by Alexander Vishik, with various applications, notably to the splitting patterns of quadratic forms under base field extensions; - papers by Oleg Izhboldin and Nikita Karpenko on Chow groups of quadrics and their stable birational equivalence, with application to the construction of fields which carry anisotropic quadratic forms of dimension 9, but none of higher dimension; - a contribution in French by Bruno Kahn which lays out a general framework for the computation of the unramified cohomology groups of quadrics and other cellular varieties. Most of the material appears here for the first time in print. The intended audience consists of research mathematicians at the graduate or post-graduate level
The book of involutions by Max-Albert Knus( Book )

1 edition published in 1998 in English and held by 313 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This monograph is an exposition of the theory of central simple algebras with involution, in relation to linear algebraic groups. It provides the algebra-theoretic foundations for much of the recent work on linear algebraic groups over arbitrary fields. Involutions are viewed as twisted forms of (hermitian) quadrics, leading to new developments on the model of the algebraic theory of quadratic forms. In addition to classical groups, phenomena related to triality are also discussed, as well as groups of type F₄ or G₂ arising from exceptional Jordan or composition algebras
Value functions on simple algebras, and associated graded rings by Jean-Pierre Tignol( )

14 editions published between 2015 and 2016 in English and held by 284 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This monograph is the first book-length treatment of valuation theory on finite-dimensional division algebras, a subject of active and substantial research over the last forty years. Its development was spurred in the last decades of the twentieth century by important advances such as Amitsur's construction of noncrossed products and Platonov's solution of the Tannaka-Artin problem. This study is particularly timely because it approaches the subject from the perspective of associated graded structures. This new approach has been developed by the authors in the last few years and has significantly clarified the theory. Various constructions of division algebras are obtained as applications of the theory, such as noncrossed products and indecomposable algebras. In addition, the use of valuation theory in reduced Whitehead group calculations (after Hazrat and Wadsworth) and in essential dimension computations (after Baek and Merkurjev) is showcased. The intended audience consists of graduate students and research mathematicians
