Progress in Galois theory : proceedings of John Thompson's 70th birthday conference by
Helmut Völklein(
Book
)
3 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 94 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The theme of this book are the interactions between group theory and algebra/geometry/number theory, showing ubiquity and power of the basic principle of Galois theory. The book presents recent developments in a major line of work about covers of the projective line (and other curves), their fields of definition and parameter spaces, and associated questions about arithmetic fundamental groups. This is intimately tied up with the Inverse Problem of Galois Theory, and uses methods of algebraic geometry, group theory and number theory
