About the Author

Juliusz Brzezinski is Professor Emeritus at the Department of Mathematical Sciences, which is a part of the University of Gothenburg and the Chalmers University of Technology, Sweden. His research concentrates on interactions between number theory, algebra and geometry of orders in algebras over global fields, in particular, in quaternion algebras. He is also interested in experimental number theory.


"This book contains a collection of exercises in Galois theory. ... The book provides the readers with a solid exercise-based introduction to classical Galois theory; it will be useful for self-study or for supporting a lecture course." (Franz Lemmermeyer, zbMATH 1396.12001, 2018)
