Lawrence Clinton Washington bornVermont is an American mathematician, who specializes in number theory.

Aleksy Leeuwenkamp marked it as to-read Apr 27, If you ever want to determine a class group you will learn that it is very helpful to know the class number. The topics covered where algebraic number-theoretic properties of cyclotomic fields, and L-Series associated with those fields.

The chapters are intended to be read consecutively, but it should be possible to vary the order considerably. There are no discussion topics on this book yet.
