• Finiteness of the ideal class group
• Dirichlet's unit theorem
• Ramification theory
• $$\zeta$$-functions of number fields and the class number formula

... and more, if time permits.

## Prerequisites

Students should be familiar with Algebra as taught in the mandatory second-year course at ETH Zurich (particularly, Galois-theory).
