The focus of this book is applications of Abstract Algebra to polynomial systems. It explores basic problems like polynomial division, solving systems of polynomials, formulas for roots of polynomials, counting integral roots of equations, etc.

Contents: Group Theory (Groups and subgroups, The isomorphism theorems); Ring Theory (Rings, ideals and homomorphisms); Field Theory (Field extension and minimal polynomial); Galois Theory (Galois group and fixed fields).

The book emphasizes the computational aspects of modern abstract algebra. Author integrated the software Mathematica into the discussions -- especially in the group theory sections -- but is careful not to make any logical reliance on this software.

Covers abstract algebra in general, with the focus on linear algebra, intended for students in mathematics, physical sciences, and computer science. The presentation is compact, but still somewhat informal. The proofs of many theorems are omitted.
