Since 1973, Galois theory has been educating undergraduate students on Galois groups and classical Galois theory. In Galois Theory, Fifth Edition, mathematician and popular science author Ian Stewart updates this well-established textbook for today’s algebra students.

New to the Fifth Edition

  • Reorganised and revised Chapters 7 and 13
  • New exercises and examples
  • Expanded, updated references
  • Further historical material on figures besides Galois: Omar Khayyam, Vandermonde, Ruffini, and Abel
  • A new final chapter discussing other directions in which Galois theory has developed: the inverse Galois problem, differential Galois theory, and a (very) brief introduction to p-adic Galois representations

This bestseller continues to deliver a rigorous, yet engaging, treatment of the subject while keeping pace with current educational requirements. More than 200 exercises and a wealth of historical notes augment the proofs, formulas, and theorems.
