Math 514, Number Theory I, Fall 1995
Thoughts on teaching algebraic number theory
What I did in class
This course was based heavily on a course taught by
Hendrik W. Lenstra, Jr., at Berkeley in Fall 1992.
I stole many good ideas from him,
particularly the use of the Krull-Akizuki theorem
as an axiomatic foundation for the study of prime decomposition.
