In this volume, a new functor \(H^2_{ab}(K,G)\) of abelian Galois cohomology is introduced from the category of connected reductive groups \(G\) over a field \(K\) of characteristic \(0\) to the category of abelian groups. The abelian Galois cohomology and the abelianization map\(ab^1:H^1(K,G) \rightarrow H^2_{ab}(K,G)\) are used to give a functorial, almost explicit description of the usual Galois cohomology set \(H^1(K,G)\) when \(K\) is a number field.

Readership
