By Grégory Berhuy

This booklet is the 1st effortless advent to Galois cohomology and its functions. the 1st half is self contained and gives the elemental result of the speculation, together with an in depth building of the Galois cohomology functor, in addition to an exposition of the final idea of Galois descent. the complete thought is encouraged and illustrated utilizing the instance of the descent challenge of conjugacy sessions of matrices. the second one a part of the booklet offers an perception of ways Galois cohomology could be precious to unravel a few algebraic difficulties in numerous energetic learn subject matters, comparable to inverse Galois thought, rationality questions or crucial measurement of algebraic teams. the writer assumes just a minimum historical past in algebra (Galois thought, tensor items of vectors areas and algebras).
