# Algebraic Number Theory Outline 2

1. Introduced the concept of Algebraic NumbersĀ and proved some of their properties: Countability (Cantor), finite degree field extension, algebraically closed in fields or rings
2. Proved the existence of Transcendental Numbers (Liouville).
3. Discussed some properties of minimal polynomials
1. Unique monic minimal polynomial having a root as algebraic number
2. Irreducible implies distinct roots in Complex field
4. If a is algebraic, the ring of Q joined by a is equivalent to the field of Q joined by a
5. Theorem: If K is a subset of L, and is a finite extension of field with characteristic 0, then L is a field extension of K.
6. Introduced the concept of Algebraic Integer, and that any monic polynomial with coefficient being integer will be an algebraic integer
7. Introduced the concept of Module, considered rings of algebraic integers as modules, connection with linear algebra.
8. Tool: if d = 2,3 mod 4, then Z joined by root d will be normal, while d = 1 mod 4, Z joined by root d will be (1+root(d))/2.
