We will study algebraic number theory following Weil's monograph, "Basic Number Theory" [1]. Rough topics include local field (and local division algebras), global fields, and simple algebras over global fields (including and zetafunctions of division algebras over global fields).
Section references are to [1] unless noted otherwise.
