This e-book corresponds to a mathematical direction given in 1986/87 on the college Louis Pasteur, Strasbourg. This paintings is essentially meant for graduate scholars. the next are valuable must haves : a number of average definitions in set thought, the definition of rational integers, a few uncomplicated evidence in Combinatorics (maybe basically Newton's binomial formula), a few theorems of study on the point of excessive faculties, and a few user-friendly Algebra (basic effects approximately teams, earrings, fields and linear algebra). an incredible position is given to routines. those workouts are just infrequently direct functions of the direction. extra frequently, they represent enhances to the textual content. as a rule, tricks or references are given in order that the reader will be capable of finding recommendations. Chapters one and care for effortless result of quantity conception, for instance : the euclidean set of rules, the chinese language the rest theorem and Fermat's little theorem. those effects are valuable via themselves, yet in addition they represent a concrete advent to a couple notions in summary algebra (for instance, euclidean earrings, primary earrings ... ). Algorithms are given for arithmetical operations with lengthy integers. the remainder of the booklet, chapters three via 7, bargains with polynomials. We supply normal effects on polynomials over arbitrary earrings. Then polynomials with advanced coefficients are studied in bankruptcy four, together with many estimates at the advanced roots of polynomials. a few of these estimates are very valuable within the next chapters.
