Setting the Stage

  • Peter Roquette
Part of the Lecture Notes in Mathematics book series (LNM, volume 2222)


I have written this book for mathematicians but I do not assume that the reader is familiar with the basic notions and terminology of the theory of algebraic function fields in the 1930s. The present section provides an introduction to this. At the same time I would like to fix the notations which I will be using in this book.
