This text contains many of the definitions and theorems from the area of mathematics called abstract algebra. It is intended for undergraduates taking an abstract algebra class, as well as for students taking their first graduate algebra course.

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.
by Edwin H. Connell
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.

After a short introductory chapter consisting mainly of reminders about such topics as functions, equivalence relations, matrices, polynomials and permutations, the notes fall into two chapters, dealing with rings and groups respectively.
