Description:
This text provides a thorough introduction to "modern" or "abstract" algebra at a level suitable for upper-level undergraduates and beginning graduate students. The book addresses the conventional topics: groups, rings, fields, and linear algebra, with symmetry as a unifying theme. This subject matter is central and ubiquitous in modern mathematics and in applications ranging from quantum physics to digital communications. The required background for using this text is a standard first course in linear algebra. Also included is a brief summary of linear algebra in an appendix to help students review. There are also appendices on sets, logic, mathematical induction, and complex numbers. It might also be useful to recommend a short supplementary text on set theory, logic, and proofs to be used as a reference and aid; several such texts are currently available.

This book is our best effort at making Abstract Algebra as down-to earth as possible. We use concrete mathematical structures such as the complex numbers, integers mod n, symmetries to introduce some of the beautifully general ideas of group theory.

This book covers basic abstract algebra. Rather than spending a lot of time on axiomatics and serious theorem proving, the author wanted to spend more time with examples, simple applications and with making scenic detours.

This book is written as a one semester introduction to abstract algebra. Applications of abstract algebra are not discussed. A certain amount of mathematical maturity, some familiarity with basic set theory, calculus, and linear algebra, is assumed.
