Galois Groups and Fundamental Groups
by

Publisher: San Francisco State University
Number of pages: 89

Description:
This course brings together two areas of mathematics that each concern symmetry -- symmetry in algebra, in the case of Galois theory; and symmetry in geometry, in the case of fundamental groups. Prerequisites are at least one course in algebra and analysis.

This work is a modern exposition of the theory of algebraic group schemes, Lie groups, and their arithmetic subgroups. Algebraic groups are groups defined by polynomials. Those in this book can all be realized as groups of matrices.

Book cover: Groups and Semigroups: Connections and ContrastsGroups and Semigroups: Connections and Contrasts
by - University of Nebraska-Lincoln
In the present paper, I will discuss some of these connections between group theory and semigroup theory, and I will also discuss some rather surprising contrasts between the theories. I will focus primarily on the theory of inverse semigroups.
