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.

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.

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.
