# Properties of Cyclotomic Polynomials

In this post we study cyclotomic polynomials in field theory and deduce some baisc properties of it. We will also use it to solve some problems in field theory.

# Calculus on Fields - Heights of Polynomials, Mahler's Measure and Northcott's Theorem

We study the height of polynomials and derive some important tools.

# Hensel's Lemma - A Fair Application of Newton's Method and 'Double Induction'

We prove the celebrated Hensel's lemma using the so-called Newton's method and "double induction", and try to find solutions of polynomials in $\mathbb{Q}_p$.

# Irreducible Representations of GL_2(F_q)

In this post we follow the step of Fulton-Harris to classify all irreducible representations of $GL_2(\mathbb{F}_q)$. A character table is added at the end.

# The Calculus of Fields - Absolute Values

In this post, we develop a fundamental device: absolute value on an arbitrary field with various points of view.

# Irreducible Representations of SO(3) and the Laplacian

In this post the irreducible representations of $SO(3)$ are studied, with much more extensive applications of linear algebra.

# Study Irreducible Representations of SU(2) Using Fourier Series

$SU(2)$ has a lot of interesting mathematical and physical properties. In this post we study its irreducible representations in a mathematician's way.

# Examples in Galois Theory 3 - Polynomials of Prime Degree and Pairs of Nonreal Roots

In this episode we focus on the rational field. What can we know about the Galois group of an irreducible polynomial with prime degree? There is a method by counting the number of nonreal roots. From this, we obtain an algorithm to compute the Galois group.

# Examples in Galois Theory 2 - Cubic Extensions

We study the Galois group of a cubic polynomial over a field with characteristic not equal to 2 and 3.

# Examples in Galois Theory 1 - Complex Field is Algebraically Closed

We try to prove the fundamental theorem of algebra, that the complex field is algebraically closed, using as little analysis as possible. In other words, the following proof will be *almost* algebraic.
