Galois theory of special trinomials

Shreeram S. Abhyankar[1]

(1) Purdue University, West Lafayette, USA

This is the material which I presented at the 60th birthday conference of my good friend Jos\'{e} Luis Vicente in Seville in September 2001. It is based on the nine lectures, now called sections, which were given by me at Purdue in Spring 1997. This should provide a good calculational background for the Galois theory of vectorial (= additive) polynomials and their iterates.

Keywords: Galois groups, iterates, norms, projective polynomials, splitting fields, vectorial polynomials
