Organizing a study group in “class field theory”

This summer, we will have running a learning seminar in class field theory (with an emphasis on the local theory). Our main (proposed) resources will be the lectures in the classic “Algebraic Number Theory” of Cassels-Frolich, Serre’s “Local Fields”, Cassels’ “Local Fields”, and the notes of J. Milne.

I figure that the first half of the summer can be spent ramping up on the relevant algebraic number theory, reviewing the theory of local fields, and learning about group cohomology. Then, in the second half we can dive right in to local class field theory.

If you are interested and want to take part, please contact me at “”. We will have an organisational meeting in the first week of May.
