401-2000-00L | Scientific Works in MathematicsTarget audience: Third year Bachelor students; Master students who cannot document to have received an adequate training in working scientifically. | 0 credits | M. Burger | ||

Abstract | Introduction to scientific writing for students with focus on publication standards and ethical issues, especially in the case of citations (references to works of others.) | ||||

Objective | Learn the basic standards of scientific works in mathematics. | ||||

Content | - Types of mathematical works - Publication standards in pure and applied mathematics - Data handling - Ethical issues - Citation guidelines | ||||

401-2004-00L | Algebra II | 5 credits | 2V + 2U | M. Burger | |

Abstract | The main topics are field extensions and Galois theory. | ||||

Objective | Introduction to fundamentals of field extensions, Galois theory, and related topics. | ||||

Content | The main topic is Galois Theory. Starting point is the problem of solvability of algebraic equations by radicals. Galois theory solves this problem by making a connection between field extensions and group theory. Galois theory will enable us to prove the theorem of Abel-Ruffini, that there are polynomials of degree 5 that are not solvable by radicals, as well as Galois' theorem characterizing those polynomials which are solvable by radicals. | ||||

Literature | Joseph J. Rotman, "Advanced Modern Algebra" third edition, part 1, Graduate Studies in Mathematics,Volume 165 American Mathematical Society Galois Theory is the topic treated in Chapter A5. | ||||
