4 credits (Spring)
An exploration of the use of algebraic techniques to answer questions in number theory.  The course studies ideals, quotients, and factorization properties of the integers and their generalizations.  The Gaussian integers and the rings of integers in quadratic and cyclotomic number fields, along with the unique factorization of ideals into prime ideals, will be emphasized.

Prerequisite: MAT 321 .
