As the writer notes within the preface, "The function of this e-book is to acquaint a wide spectrum of scholars with what's this day referred to as 'abstract algebra.'" Written for a one-semester direction, this self-contained textual content contains quite a few examples designed to base the definitions and theorems on adventure, to demonstrate the speculation with concrete examples in normal contexts, and to provide the scholar vast computational practice.
The first 3 chapters development in a comparatively leisurely style and comprise plentiful aspect to lead them to as understandable as attainable. bankruptcy One presents a brief path in units and numbers for college kids missing these necessities, rendering the e-book mostly self-contained. whereas Chapters 4 and 5 are more difficult, they're good in the achieve of the intense student.
The routines were conscientiously selected for optimum usefulness. a few are formal and manipulative, illustrating the speculation and aiding to strengthen computational talents. Others represent a vital part of the speculation, via asking the scholar to provide proofs or elements of proofs passed over from the textual content. nonetheless others stretch mathematical imaginations via calling for either conjectures and proofs.
Taken jointly, textual content and workouts contain a superb advent to the facility and magnificence of summary algebra. Now to be had during this low-cost version, the e-book is on the market to a variety of scholars, who will locate it an extremely priceless resource.
