For More Than Thirty Years Modern Algebra Has Served The Student Community As A Textbook For Introductory Courses On The Subject. The Book Starts From Set Theory And Covers An Advanced Course In Group Theory And Ring Theory. A Detailed Study Of Field Theo
Algebra, Second Edition, by Michael Artin, is ideal for the honors undergraduate or introductory graduate course. The second edition of this classic text incorporates twenty years of feedback and the author’s own teaching experience. The text discusses concrete topics of algebra in greater detail than most texts, preparing students for the more abstract concepts; linear algebra is tightly integrated throughout.
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.
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.
