teaching

this page contains lecture notes and other material for the courses i am teaching. if interested in the LaTeX source or problem sheets, please email me.

elementary number theory

since 2015 i am teaching a course on number theory as the second part of a year 2 module called algebra and number theory.
nottingham students can find all information on this module on its moodle page.
here are the complete lecture notes on this module as i gave it in 2017.

group theory

2012-2017 i was teaching a course on group theory.
nottingham students can find all information on this module on its moodle page.
here are the complete lecture notes on this module as i gave it in 2017.

coding and cryptography

for many years, i was teaching a course on coding and cryptography.
the lecture notes with all problem sheets are here. there used to be an active wiki on this, but it is now no longer permitted by the uni of nottingham to run such an open wiki, so i had to take it offline.

further number theory

i was teaching the course g13fnt for a number of years. it contained the following chapters:
Prime numbers, Quadratic reciprocity, Bernoulli numbers, L-functions, Gaussian integers , and p-adic numbers.

algebraic number theory

in 2005/6 i was teaching a course on algebraic number theory in the masters program at the épfl. the course covered both the classical approach via ideals as well as an introduction to the theory of valuations and adèles.

here are some documents for the course (in french) :

here some links to things related to the course :

the page of j. s. milne contains a course on the subject. william stein has given a course which my own course is largely based upon. it can be found here. the number theory web and the google directories provide a lot of links of interest for a number theorist. for historical matters you might refer to this.
