"A wonderfully written, good chosen and offered assortment … i like to recommend the publication unreservedly to all readers, in or out arithmetic, who prefer to 'follow the gleam' of numbers.

**A Brief Guide to Algebraic Number Theory **

This account of Algebraic quantity conception is written essentially for starting graduate scholars in natural arithmetic, and encompasses every thing that the majority such scholars tend to want; others who desire the fabric also will locate it obtainable. It assumes no earlier wisdom of the topic, yet an organization foundation within the concept of box extensions at an undergraduate point is needed, and an appendix covers different necessities.

But we have seen these ideals have the same norm, so they are equal. 37 In fact this result is true even when OK = Z[α] as long as p |OK : Z[α]|. We shall not prove this generalization. √ Example Let K = Q( m) be a quadratic field where √ m is a squarefree integer with m ≡ 1 (mod 4). Then OK = Z[α] where α = m has minimum polynomial X 2 − m. To determine the prime ideal factorization of p , where p is a prime number, in OK , we must factorize X 2 − m in Fp [X]. There are three possibilities: 1.

We have already seen that I and J are nonprincipal. We can now √ write this as [I] = [OK ] and [J] = [OK ]. But we 2 −6 and J 2 = 3 . Thus [I]2 = [I][J] = [J]2 = also have I = 2 , IJ = [OK ] in ClK . Thus [J] = [I]−1 = [I], that √ is, the ideals I and √ J lie in the −1 −1 −2 −6 2 = −6/2 . Hence same ideal class. Indeed IJ = IJJ = √ J = ( −6/2)I. We can confirm this by calculating √ √ √ √ √ −6 −6 I= 2, −6 = −6, −3 = 3, −6 = J. 2 2 So we have at least two elements, [OK ] and [I], in ClK . As [I]2 = [OK ] then [I] has order 2 in the class-group.

Thus γv = Av where v is the column vector with entries the βj and A is the matrix with entries the ajk . Thus γ is an eigenvalue of A which is a matrix with integer entries. Thus γ is an algebraic integer and so γ ∈ K ∩ B = OK . We now show that prime ideals are invertible. 2 Let K be a number field and let P be a prime ideal of OK . Then there is a fractional ideal J of K with P J = 1 . Proof We let P ∗ = {β ∈ K : βP ⊆ OK }. Then P ∗ is a fractional ideal of K, OK ⊆ P ∗ and P ⊆ P P ∗ ⊆ OK . By the maximality of the prime ideal P , either P P ∗ = P or P P ∗ = OK .
