NT & AG Lunch: Ehud DeShalit "An overview of class field theory, III"

Class field theory classifies abelian extensions of local and global fields
in terms of groups constructed from the base. We shall survey the main results of class
field theory for number fields and function fields alike. The goal of these introductory lectures
is to prepare the ground for the study of explicit class field theory in the function field case,
via Drinfeld modules.
I will talk for the first 2 or 3 times.
