This is a website for the Part IID course Galois Theory (2012, M24); here are some material for this course.(Common sense) comments on exams. Only the intersection of the schedule and what I did in the lectures are examinable. If you prefer to use different definitions/proofs from the lectures, it is totally acceptable as long as they are clearly stated and the essential arguments are given (although the questions will be designed to have as little such complication as possible).
Meetings: Tue. / Thu. / Sat. 9am, MR 3.
This is more or less a faithful record of what went up on the boards. Apart from incorporating Handout 4, I made only minimal improvements in notation and phrasings. I would be grateful if you let me know when you find errors/typos.
update since 27/11/12:
The questions will be mostly taken from the past sheets, with possibly different order/notation.
Comments on the optional questions. I choose around ten questions from each sheet that you might try first (and these should suffice for the sake of preparing for the exam). I decided to call the rest "optional" (the starred ones). The easy ones are always unstarred and the very hard ones are always starred, but the division is not only in terms of the difficulty; unstarred doesn't mean easy. Not only in terms of importance either; there are interesting and educational questions among the starred. I expect the students to find interesting questions among the starred ones to challenge themselves.
Dear supervisors: shoot me an email! I can send you my solutions for the example sheet (but don't show them to the students!). Hope you can give me feedbacks.
