"Global theory of algebraic number fields"

In this talk, I will embark on an informal review of the global theory of algebraic number fields: integrality, discriminants and integral bases, Dedekind domains, fractional ideals and the ideal class group, Minkowski theory, Dirichlet's unit theorem, splitting of primes, as time permits. Motivation for class field theory will be discussed.
