A very beautiful classical theory on field extensions of a certain type (Galois extensions) initiated by Galois in the 19th century. Explains, in particular, why it is not possible to solve an equation of degree 5 or more in the same way as we solve quadratic or cubic equations. The students shall learn to compute Galois groups and study the properties of various field extensions. We first shall survey the basic notions and properties of field extensions: algebraic, transcendental, finite field extensions, degree of an extension, algebraic closure, decomposition field of a polynomial. Then we shall do a bit of commutative algebra (finite algebras over a field, base change via tensor product) and apply this to study the notion of separability in some detail. After that we shall discuss Galois extensions and Galois correspondence and give many examples (cyclotomic extensions, finite fields, Kummer extensions, Artin-Schreier extensions, etc.). We shall address the question of solvability of equations by radicals (Abel theorem). We shall also try to explain the relation to representations and to topological coverings. Finally, we shall briefly discuss extensions of rings (integral elemets, norms, traces, etc.) and explain how to use the reduction modulo primes to compute Galois groups. A weekly test and two more serious exams in the middle and in the end of the course. For the final result, tests count 40%, first (shorter) exam 20%, final exam 40%. Do you have technical problems?

A difficult course for me, personally, but that makes it all the more worth it! Taking this course has helped me learn more I thought I would. Definitely recommended.

Thank You Prof Ekaterina Amerik for this course. I understand with your explaination. Maybe i must study again and again for understand this material.

the content is rich, though a little advanced. I strongly recommend this course to others, because I personally learned a lot from it.

The teacher is good at explaining things.

It is best you take an algebra course for prerequisite.

Actually rigorous and non-trivial maths.

The material is very interesting, but the course goes very fast, and the presentation is dry.

我对此评分不高的主要原因是因为授课太难,另外中间tensor product of modules很难又很偏。

I would not recommend this course to anyone. Perhaps the higher ratings are from when the course was run live. As it stands as a self-paced course, the lectures are insufficient to prepare for the quizzes. There are no notes, nor are there suggested supplemental readings for each lecture. The transcripts of the videos that are provided do not capture the mathematical symbols and concepts. The quizzes have multi-selection questions that are scored all or nothing with no feedback as to which parts you got correct. I am very disappointed.

Please show visual examples, diagrams to start with; -Class notes should be ready before class starts; first motivational examples then definitions please. Visual Group Theory, Lecture 6.6: The fundamental theorem of Galois theory. For now pls unenroll me from this course.

Very Hard to follow. She is constantly writing things while teaching. She could have written down everthing before class.

Not a very good or interesting course and does not use standard notation for the subject.

Hopeless ! Less clear and understandable than simply reading a textbook.

A waste of time.

Instructor is monotonous.
