**Elementary 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.
