A hundred is a geographic division formerly used in northern Germanic countries and related colonies, which historically was used to divide a larger region into smaller administrative divisions. The equivalent term in Swedish is härad (in Uppland also known as hundare during the early Middle Ages); in Danish and Norwegian, herred; in Finnish, kihlakunta; and in Estonian, kihelkond.
Homework Statement
When learning about quadratic equations in Langs book he gave the example:
let ax^2 + bx+ c = 0 be an equation
he subtracts the c, and says we want to get the left hand side (ax^2 + bx) = (x-s)^2

Problem. Let $K$ be the field obtained from $\mathbf F_p$ by adjoining all primitive $\ell$-th roots of unity for primes $\ell\neq p$. Then $K$ is algebraically closed.
It suffices to show that the polynomial $x^{p^n}-x$ splits in $K$ for all $n$.
In order to show this, it in turn suffices to...

Hello, I have access to both Algebra (the graduate one) by Lang, and the series of Algebra Chapters 1-7 by the Bourbaki group. I am okay with Lang's style and all, and I am aware that he was in the Bourbaki group, but I was wondering what is considered the better of the two. Thanks in advance.
Hi, I'm going to start learning Abstract Algebra, and I was wondering which book, either Lang (his graduate version) or Dummit and Foote, is better. I'm totally okay with terseness to any degree so that isn't an issue for me. Now, I know that Lang is a hardcore graduate book (at least according...

I have a copy of both Lang's text and Larson and Edwards' text, and was wondering which would be best for someone looking for a deeper understanding of Calculus. Any and all advice is welcome here! I was working through Kleppner & Kolenkow's Introduction to Mechanics and decided I need a much...
Hello, all. I am reading Serge Lang's "A First Course in Calculus" in order to get a better understanding of the topic. I thought I would read his review of fundamental concepts, and, naturally, it has been a breeze so far. However, I am stumped when trying to work out this problem:
I do not...
I decide to self-study linear algebra. I have heard words about some good books on this subject such as Sheldon Axler's. Unfortunately his book is only loanable for 4 days in my university library. There is this book from S. Lang that I can borrow for one month, so what do you think about this...
I am starting my self-study and am going from the ground up starting with a rigorous treatment of some "pre-calculus" material. I have both "Principles of Mathematics" and "Freshman Mathematics" by Allendoerfer and Oakley.
Do I need Serge Lang's Basic Mathematics? Is there anything that is...
I've noticed that the first edition has 250 some odd pages and I believe the last edition has over 500 pages. Would I be missing out on any material if I bought an earlier edition? I have a limited amount of time so the shorter the text the better.
I also noticed it does not use Epsilon Delta...
I'm looking to begin an independent study of Calculus, having read Lang's Basic Mathematics. I would like to know if I should move straight on to Spivak's Calculus, or start with Lang's A First Course in Calculus? If it affects the answer in any way, I have had some rudimentary experience with...
I've just bought(and borrowed) these books :
A first course in calculus by lang(621 pages but apparentely I've heard it lacks exercises(not enough))

Hello
I am a undergrad electrical engineering student. I took two courses on C before. With C, this seems to be not enough because I am hoping to help out in some engineering related research project at school.
Currently, I have no idea what type of research I am looking for. I am just...

I've been googling all over for a solutions manual to the book Basic Mathematics by Serge Lang, but I've only been able to find one for his book on geometry. It's not a terrible problem, but I'm using the book for self-study. At first it seemed that any exercise with multiple parts had at least...
Hey guys, the title basically says it all! I'm looking for a book to work along side Serge Lang's basic Math's book. Something which goes into topics more in depth. I'm out of scratch with my Math's :(
Hope someone can point me to a good text!

hi.
please can anyone help me in making a program that opens a file and tell the no. of character and no. of words in the file.
i can write a program to open a file but how can we count characters and words of any file..:confused:

I've been going through a book called "Short Calculus: The Original Edition of A First Course in Calculus," by Serge Lang. It says, " The derivative of a^x is a^x (log a)." But everything else I look at says the derivative of a^x is a^x (ln a). Since ln a and log a are...
Let A and A' be abelian groups and B a subgroup of A. Let f: A -> A' be a group homomorphism. Let A^f = Im(f), B^f = Im(f|_B), A_f = Ker(f), B_f=Ker(f|_B) .
Show that (A:B) = (A^f:B^f)(A_f:B_f) .
This is the work I have done: We have B \subset E=f^{-1}(f(B)) . We also have an isomorphism...
