Notes on Algebraic Structures
by Peter J. Cameron - Queen Mary, University of London , 2006
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.
Ten Chapters of the Algebraical Art
by Peter J. Cameron - Queen Mary, University of London , 2007
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 J. Mathos, R. Campanha - Wikibooks , 2012
This book is on abstract algebra, an advanced set of topics related to algebra, including groups, rings, ideals, fields, and more. Readers of this book are expected to have read and understand Algebra, and Linear Algebra books.
by F. Oggier - Nanyang Technological University , 2010
Contents: Group Theory (Groups and subgroups, The isomorphism theorems); Ring Theory (Rings, ideals and homomorphisms); Field Theory (Field extension and minimal polynomial); Galois Theory (Galois group and fixed fields).
Abstract Algebra I
by Marcel B. Finan - Arkansas Tech University , 2004
Contents: Concept of a Mapping; Composition; Binary Operations; Composition of Mappings as a Binary Operation; Definition and Examples of Groups; Permutation Groups; Subgroups; Symmetry Groups; Equivalence Relations; The Division Algorithm; etc.
Algebra: A Computational Introduction
by John Scherk - Chapman & Hall , 2000
The book emphasizes the computational aspects of modern abstract algebra. Author integrated the software Mathematica into the discussions -- especially in the group theory sections -- but is careful not to make any logical reliance on this software.
Abstract Algebra Done Concretely
by Donu Arapura - Purdue University , 2004
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.
Abstract Algebra: Theory and Applications
by Thomas Judson - Virginia Commonwealth University Mathematics , 2009
This text is intended for a one- or two-semester undergraduate course in abstract algebra and covers the traditional theoretical aspects of groups, rings, and fields. Many applications are included, including coding theory and cryptography.
by John A. Beachy, William D. Blair - Waveland , 2006
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.
Intro to Abstract Algebra
by Paul Garrett , 1998
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.
Elementary Abstract Algebra
by W. Edwin Clark - University of South Florida , 2001
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.
Algebra: Abstract and Concrete
by Frederick M. Goodman - Semisimple Press , 2006
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.
Elements of Abstract and Linear Algebra
by Edwin H. Connell , 2004
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.
