By focusing on quadratic numbers, this advanced undergraduate or master’s level textbook on algebraic number theory is accessible even to students who have yet to learn Galois theory. The techniques of elementary arithmetic, ring theory and linear algebra are shown working together to prove important theorems, such as the unique factorization Author: Mak Trifkovic. In this book, award-winning author Goro Shimura treats new areas and presents relevant expository material in a clear and readable style. Topics include Witt’s theorem and the Hasse principle on quadratic forms, algebraic theory of Clifford algebras, spin groups, and spin representations.

In mathematics, an arithmetic group is a group obtained as the integer points of an algebraic group, for example (). They arise naturally in the study of arithmetic properties of quadratic forms and other classical topics in number also give rise to very interesting examples of Riemannian manifolds and hence are objects of interest in differential geometry and topology.

Lecture Notes. Arithmetic of Quadratic is the expanded version of the lecture notes of a graduate course I taught. Most of the material is taken from O'Meara's book Introduction to quadratic forms, Kitaoka's book Arithmetic of quadratic forms, and Kneser's book Quadratische Formen.I am sure that it still has a lot of typos and even errors; so please use it at your own risk. This volume discusses results about quadratic forms that give rise to interconnections among number theory, algebra, algebraic geometry, and topology. The author deals with various topics including Hilbert's 17th problem, the Tsen-Lang theory of quasi-algebraically closed fields, the level of topological spaces, and systems of quadratic forms.

[Ricardo Baeza;]. The algebraic theory of quadratic forms, i.e., the study of quadratic forms over ar-bitrary ﬁelds, really began with the pioneering work of Witt.

In his paper [], Witt considered the totality of non-degenerate symmetric bilinear forms over an arbitrary ﬁeld F of characteristic diﬀerent from two. Under this assumption, the theory of File Size: 3MB. The aim of this book is to provide an introduction to quadratic forms that builds from basics up to the most recent results.

Professor Kitaoka is well known for his work in this area, and in this book he covers many aspects of the subject, including lattice theory, Siegel's formula, and some results involving tensor products of positive definite quadratic by: The algebraic theory of quadratic forms, starting with the work of Witt in the s through its rebirth in s with the work of Pfister, shifts the emphasis from a particular quadratic form to the set of all such (non degenerate) forms over a fixed ground field, associating to this set an algebraic object, the Witt ring.

Divided into two parts, the first “is preliminary and consists of algebraic number theory and the theory of semisimple algebras.” The remainder of the book is subsequently devoted to the title’s promise, the arithmetic of quadratic forms. But there is a lot more to say: there’s a lot more to the promise.
