Covers its topic in greater depth than the typical standard books on polynomial algebra

*"synopsis" may belong to another edition of this title.*

This comprehensive book covers both long-standing results in the theory of polynomials and recent developments which have until now only been available in the research literature. After initial chapters on the location and separation of roots and on irreducibility criteria, the book covers more specialized polynomials, including those which are symmetric, integer-value or cyclotomic, and those of Chebyshev and Bernoulli. There follow chapters on Galois theory and ideals in polynomial rings. Finally there is a detailed discussion of Hilbert’s 17th problem on the representation of non-negative polynomials as sums of squares of rational functions and generalizations.

From the reviews:

"... Despite the appearance of this book in a series titled Algorithms and Computation of Mathematics, computation occupies only a small part of the monograph. It is best described as a useful reference for one's personal collection and a text for a full-year course given to graduate or even senior undergraduate students. [.....] the book under review is worth purchasing for the library and possibly even for one's own collection. The author's interest in the history and development of this area is evident, and we have pleasant glimpses of progress over the last three centuries. He exercises nice judgment in selection of arguments, with respect to both representativeness of approaches and elegance, so that the reader gains a synopsis of and guide to the literature, in which more detail can be found. ..."

E. Barbeau, SIAM Review 47, No. 3, 2005

"... the volume is packed with results and proofs that are well organised thematically into chapters and sections. What is unusual is to have a text that embraces and intermingles both analytic and algebraic aspects of the theory. Although the subject is about such basic objects, many tough results of considerable generality are incorporated and it is striking that refinements, both in theorems and proofs continued throughout the latter part of the Twentieth Century. [...] There is a plentiful of problems, some of which might be challenging even for polynomial people; solutions to selected problems are also included."

S.D.Cohen, MathSciNet, MR 2082772, 2005

"Problems concerning polynomials have impulsed resp. accompanied the development of algebra from its very beginning until today and over the centuries a lot of mathematical gems have been brought to light. This book presents a few of them, some being classical, but partly probably unknown even to experts, some being quite recently discovered. [...] Many historical comments and a clear style make the book very readable, so it can be recommended warmly to non-experts already at an undergraduate level and, because of its contents, to experts as well."

"Polynome bilden einen grundlegenden Baustein der Algebra gleichwie der Analysis. Nichtsdestotrotz werden sie in der herkömmlichen Literatur of als bloßes Mittel zum Zweck betrachtet, und es gibt nach wie vor wenige Bücher, die sich ausschließlich der Theorie der Polynome widmen. Das vorliegende Buch bildet einen wohltuenden Kontrast dazu. Es versteht sich als Sammlung der wichtigsten Resultate der Theorie der Polynome, klassischer ebenso wie moderner. [......] Als Einführung in die faszinierende Welt der Polynome ist es zweifellos jedem Interessierten wärmstens zu empfehlen."

"This volume is an excellent introduction to the main topics on polynomials. The author presents both classical and modern subjects. ... Each chapter contains a list of selected problems and their solutions. The book includes a rich bibliography and an useful index. It will be useful for undergraduate and graduate students in mathematics."

*Doru Stefanescu, Zentralblatt MATH, Vol. 1063, 2005*

"The theory of polynomials is a very important and interesting part of mathematics. ... We note that at the end of chapters 1-4 some interesting problems and their solutions can be found. This is an excellent book written about polynomials. We can recommend this book to all who are interested in the theory of polynomials." (Miklós Dormán, Acta Scientiarum Mathematicarum, Vol. 72, 2006)

“This is an interesting, useful, well-organized, and well-written compendium of theorems and techniques about polynomials. ... The present volume is a translation of the 2001 Russian second edition. ... This is primarily a reference work ... it does include a set of interesting problems (with some solutions) at the end if each chapter.” (Allen Stenger, The Mathematical Association of America, August, 2011)
