This is a second edition of Lang's well-known textbook. It covers all of the basic material of classical algebraic number theory, giving the student the background necessary for the study of further topics in algebraic number theory, such as cyclotomic fields, or modular forms.
This well-known textbook covers all of the basic material of classical algebraic and analytic number theory, giving the student the background necessary for the study of modern algebraic number theory. Part I introduces some of the basic ideas of the theory: number fields, ideal classes, ideals and addles, and zeta functions. Part II covers class field theory and Part III is devoted to analytic methods, including an exposition of Tate's thesis, the Brauer-Siegel theorem, and Weil's explicit formulas which has been completely re-written for the new edition.
