Abstract: 

We run a crash course through inverse limit constructions and Galois theory, ending with a 1974 result by William C. Waterhouse. Time permitting we will discuss the related inverse Galois problem, still unsolved. Seminar regulars will recognize a guest appearance by their favorite topological space.
