DESCRIPTION:

José Bertin said An original Treatise of Modern Number theory. This small book is the third in a trilogy by the same authors. It provides a clear , elegant and pedagogical treatment of what is called '' Modern Algebraic number theory''. This third part treats perhaps a more advanced topic than the previous two. The book is essentially self-contained, and for these reasons it is highly recommendable to a any people who wish to learn this fascinating s

(The first two volumes were also published in the Iwanami Series in Modern Mathematics, as volumes 186 and 240.) The two main topics of this book are Iwasawa theory and modular forms. The presentation of Iwasawa theory focuses on the Iwasawa main conjecture, which establishes far-reaching relations between a p-adic analytic zeta function and a determinant defined from a Galois action on some ideal class groups. Together with the first two volumes, this book is a good resource for anyone learning or teaching modern algebrai
