Algebraic Number Field

  • Definition: A number field K is a subfield of C, the field of complex numbers. Any subfield of C contains the field Q of rational numbers, so it is a field extension of Q. The number fields most commonly studied are algebraic number fields, all of whose elements are algebraic numbers.
