Kummer theory seminar

Posted by Martin Orr on Sunday, 07 December 2008 at 20:07

Term has just finished and it's been hard work so I have had no time to post all the way through. At the end of term, I gave a talk on Kummer theory (a bit of Galois theory - you can read the abstract) as part of the Part III seminar series. My talk was fairly easy, intended to fill in some stuff that was assumed in the Part III Local Fields lectures but not included in Part II Galois Theory. None of the number theory talks provoked many questions afterwards.

Out of the seminars I attended (although these were only on one day out of 2.5) the number theory seminars had the largest audience, twenty-something; this included a significant proportion of PhD students and academic staff, while the others (category theory and differential geometry) were mostly attended by Part III students.
