Induced maps in Galois cohomology Nguyen, Bich-Ngoc Cao
Galois cohomology is an important tool in algebra that can be used to classify isomorphism classes of algebraic objects over a field. In this thesis, we show that many objects of interest in algebra can be described in cohomological terms. Some objects that we discuss include quadratic forms, Pfister forms, G-crossed product algebras, and tuples of central simple algebras. We also provide cohomological interpretation to some induced maps that naturally occur in short exact sequences.
