Abstract
In this dissertation class groups of imaginary bicyclic

biquadratic fields are considered. In chapter 1 we develop

a method for determining the structure of the 2-class group

of K. In chapters 3, 4, and 5 this method is applied to

determine all imaginary bicyclic biquadratic extensions of Q

with class number 4, 8, and 16, as well as to determine the

specific structure of each.
