Advanced Topics in Algebra and Number Theory
This course is a tutorial in Advanced Abstract Algebra and Number Theory for students who have completed work in either subject. Starting from elementary results in linear algebra, we will explore the fundamental mathematical ideas underlying field extensions, constructability, unique factorization, Euclidean fields, and Galois theory. Working independently and in small groups, students will gain experience reading advanced sources and communicating their insights in expository writing and oral presentations. This course fulfills the capstone senior work requirement for the mathematics major. (MATH 0241 or MATH 0302; Approval required) 3 hrs. sem.
