This is a second edition of Lang's well-known textbook. It covers all of the basic material of classical algebraic number theory, giving the student the background necessary for the study of further topics in algebraic number theory, such as cyclotomic fields, or modular forms.

"Lang's books are always of great value for the graduate student and the research mathematician. This updated edition of Algebraic number theory is no exception."—-MATHEMATICAL REVIEWS

From the Publisher
Second Edition

S. Lang

Algebraic Number Theory

"This book is the second edition of Lang's famous and indispensable book on algebraic number theory. The major change from the previous edition is that the last chapter on explicit formulas has been completely rewritten. In addition, a few new sections have been added to the other chapters . . . Lang's books are always of great value for the graduate student and the research mathematician. This updated edition of Algebraic number theory is no exception."—MATHEMATICAL REVIEWS
