Jul 22, Woflmao rated it liked it Shelves: This is a rather old introductory text on the fundamentals of Galois theory, the theory of field extensions and solvability of polynomial equations. Nowadays, the first twenty pages can easily be skipped, as they thepry a review of linear algebra that any student wishing to read this book will already have encountered in the first semester.

The main benefit of this text is that it presents the most essential results in Galois theory in very easily accessible form, with easy to follow proofs and without tyeory. On the downside, a lot of relevant material is left out and will have to be found elsewhere.
A unique failure fheory Artin’s original text was the complete omission of the application of Galois theory to the solution of polynomial equations, but an appendix written by Milgram seeks to remedy this. The typesetting is abysmal, and it would be nice if the publisher could eiml some point find someone reset the text in a descent font.
Sep 25, Jason Evans rated it it was ok. This book pissed me off so much I wanted to fight the author. But he is dead. Dec 15, Jonathan rated it liked it.
But it’s not that great.
I’m not just griping about the obvious 50’s lecture-note-style straight-out-of-a-typewritter kind of typesetting. These are nitpicks, but I believe that they prevent the exposition from being more readable.
Artin: Chapter II: Field Theory
It’s thin for a reason. It is not that self-contained. Perhaps back in the day knowledge of linear algebra was not that wide-spread, so Artin chooses to include it.
But there are the occasional, non-trivial group theoretic results that are simply assumed such as Cayley’s theorem, which is implicitly used at least once. On the other hand, the audience of this book should have completed a first course in algebra anyway, so this is not a big problem. The book is seriously lacking in examples, and hence motivation for each lemma and theorem is not necessarily clear. It appears to me that the best way to read this book is to have a skim over the whole book to get a feel for the overall progression of the book partly because the book lacks an index, so things may be hard to find if you don’t do this.
Then jump straight into Milgram’s bit about “applications” basically, Galois theory in explicit form and read that.
Only whenever things stop making sense do you go back to the main bit by Artin. Jun 17, Pat rated it really liked it. It’s always great to read directly from someone as important to our modern presentation of Galois theory as Artin. He’s very articulate and concisely introduces the reader to the basic tenets of Galois theory and its original applications. The approach through basic Linear Algebra concepts makes this accessible to one who has had an introductory course in that.
A more modern approach to this subject should certainly be read concurrently though.
