## algebraic number theory

my professor started this course by saying "the problem with language is that it's not associative." meaning the name of the course could be read as (algebraic number) theory, the theory of algebraic numbers, or algebraic (number theory), number theory using algebra. both of these make some kind of sense mathematically.

i'm glad he said this because it's something i've often worried about, my favourite example being Third World War.
