## e-books in Group Theory category An Elementary Introduction to Group Theory

The theory of groups is a branch of mathematics in which we study the concept of binaryoperations. Group theory has many applications in physics and chemistry, and is potentially applicable in any situation characterized by symmetry.

(2739 views) An Introduction to the Theory of Groups of Finite Order
by - Oxford Clarendon Press ,
This book aims at introducing the reader to more advanced treatises and original papers on Groups of finite order. The subject requires for its study only an elementary knowledge of Algebra. I have tried to lighten for him the initial difficulties.
