Elementary Abstract Algebra: Examples and ApplicationsElementary Abstract Algebra: Examples and Applications
by Justin Hill, Chris Thron - Texas A&M University
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.
