Number of pages: 103
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.

An introduction to modern and abstract algebra at upper undergraduate level and beginning graduate students. The book treats conventional topics: linear algebra, groups, rings, fields, and symmetry as a unifying concept.

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.

These notes are intended for an introduction to algebra. The text is intended as a first introduction to the ideas of proof and abstraction in mathematics, as well as to the concepts of abstract algebra (groups and rings).
by Paul Garrett
The text covers basic algebra of polynomials, induction, sets, counting principles, integers, unique factorization into primes, Sun Ze's theorem, good algorithm for exponentiation, Fermat's little theorem, Euler's theorem, public-key ciphers, etc.
