Algorithms for Algebraic Number Theory II

  • Henri Cohen
Part of the Graduate Texts in Mathematics book series (GTM, volume 138)


We now leave the realm of quadratic fields where the main computational tasks of algebraic number theory mentioned at the end of Chapter 4 were relatively simple (although as we have seen many conjectures remain), and move on to general number fields.
