Abstract

Maximal unramified extensions of quadratic number fields have been well studied. This thesis focuses on maximal unramified extensions of cyclic cubic fields. We use the unconditional discriminant bounds of Moreno to determine cyclic cubic fields having no non-solvable unramified extensions. We also use a theorem of Roquette, developed from the method of Golod-Shafarevich, and some results by Cohen to construct cyclic cubic fields in which the unramified extension is of infinite degree.
