Market_Desc: Upper undergraduate and graduate level modern algebra courses Special Features: · Includes applications so students can see right away how to use the theory· This classic text has sold almost 12,000 units· Contains numerous examples· Includes chapters on Boolean Algebras, groups, quotient groups, symmetry groups in three dimensions, Polya-Burnside method of enumeration, monoids and machines, rings and fields, polynomial and Euclidean rings, quotient rings, field extensions, Latin squares, geometrical constructions, and error-correcting codes· Andwers to odd-numbered exercises so students can check their work About The Book: The book covers all the group, ring, and field theory that is usually contained in a standard modern algebra course; the exact sections containing this material are indicated in the Table of Contents. It stops short of the Sylow theorems and Galois theory. These topics could only be touched on in a first course, and the author feels that more time should be spent on them if they are to be appreciated.
Linear algebra is a fundamental area of mathematics, and arguably the most powerful mathematical tool ever developed. This dynamic and engaging book uses numerous examples, question and answer sections, and historical biographies to provide an introduction to linear algebra for undergraduates in mathematics, the physical sciences and engineering.
This is a self-contained text on abstract algebra for senior undergraduate and senior graduate students, which gives complete and comprehensive coverage of the topics usually taught at this level. The book is divided into five parts. The first part contains fundamental information such as an informal introduction to sets, number systems, matrices, and determinants. The second part deals with groups. The third part treats rings and modules. The fourth part is concerned with field theory. Much of the material in parts II, III, and IV forms the core syllabus of a course in abstract algebra. The fifth part goes on to treat some additional topics not usually taught at the undergraduate level, suc...
