Hi,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I"m working on my math history class project. I choose a topic to discuss about Theory of Ideal Prime Factors by Ernst Eduard Kummer. (1847). I read the material few times, but I don't get an understand of the basic idea how he can come up this theory. Can someone explain it in a simply way of the theory?

Thanks.

(I can post if need furter information about the materials, from the book "Classics of Mathematics". by Ronald Calinger)
