Ever since the concepts of Galois groups in algebra and fundamental groups in topology emerged during the nineteenth century, mathematicians have known of the strong analogies between the two concepts. This book presents the connection starting at an elementary level, showing how the judicious use of algebraic geometry gives access to the powerful interplay between algebra and topology that underpins much modern research in geometry and number theory. Assuming as little technical background as possible, the book starts with basic algebraic and topological concepts, but already presented from the modern viewpoint advocated by Grothendieck. This enables a systematic yet accessible ... Read more

Reviews for Galois Groups and Fundamental Groups (Cambridge Studies in Advanced Mathematics)
The book is well written and contains much information about the etale fundamental group. There are exercises in every chapter. On the whole, the book is useful for mathematicians and graduate students looking for one place where they can find information about the etale fundamental group and the related Nori fundamental group scheme.
