Praise for the Third Edition:
"This edition preserves and even extends one of the most popular features of the original edition: the historical introduction and the story of the fatal duel of Evariste Galois. … These historical notes should be of interest to students as well as mathematicians in general. … after more than 30 years, Ian Stewart’s Galois Theory remains a valuable textbook for algebra undergraduate students."
—Zentralblatt MATH, 1049
"The penultimate chapter is about algebraically closed fields and the last chapter, on transcendental numbers, contains ‘what-every-mathematician-should-see-at-least-once,’ the proof of transcendence of pi. … The book is designed for second- and third-year undergraduate courses. I will certainly use it."
Since 1973, Galois Theory has been educating undergraduate students on Galois groups and classical Galois theory. In Galois Theory, Fourth Edition, mathematician and popular science author Ian Stewart updates this well-established textbook for today’s algebra students.
