What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

" is a very stimulating text, which . . . will attract mathematicians working in group theory, number theory, algebraic geometry, and complex analysis.
Zentralblatt für Mathematik

This small book contains a nice introduction to some classical highlights and some recent work on the inverse Galois theory problem. The topics and main theorems are carefully chosen and composed in a masterly manner.
Mathematiacl Reviews -July 2007

"Serre had the great good sense to have notes taken at his 1988 lectures at Harvard, creating a slim volume of great interest..." -BOOK NEWS Inc., June 2008

J.-P. Serre, one of the greatest mathematicians in our time, provides here a unique introduction to both some classical milestones and some recent developments in the realm of inverse Galois theory. ... [This book] will maintain its unique, unparalleled role in the literature on inverse Galois theory for further generations. Now as before, J.-P. Serre's masterpiece of expository writing is an unvaluable source of inspiration and incitement likewise. -Werner Kleinert, Zentralblatt MATH, January 2007

"Serre’s book helped to call the attention to a deep classical problem with connections to algebraic geometry, topology, algebra, and number theory. By carefully selecting examples, methods and topics, this book goes deeply into the problem." -MAA Reviews, September 2008"
