coGalois theory of torsion free covers

PhD. Notre Dame University, 1958


My research interest concerns the coGalois theory of torsion free covers.

This is a joint program with a team including researchers in Almería, Spain (who frequently visit UK). We have now classified the compact absolute coGalois groups (they are products of finite dimensional p-adic Lie groups) and are now involved in the relative theory.
