Intro to Abstract Algebra by Paul Garrett The text covers basic algebra of polynomials, induction, sets, counting principles, integers, unique factorization into primes, Sun Ze’s theorem, good algorithm for exponentiation, Fermat’s little theorem, Euler’s theorem, public-key ciphers, etc.
Finally, we would like to thank our publisher, Neil Rowe, for his continued support of our writing. With students who already have some acquaintance with the material in Chapters 1 and 2, it would be possible to begin with Algebraa 3, on groups, using the first two chapters for a reference. The exercises are the main reason I am interested in this book.
Waveland Press – Abstract Algebra, Third Edition, by John A. Beachy, William D. Blair
After using the book, on more than one occasion he sent us a large number of detailed suggestions on how to improve the presentation. Contents Chapter algehra Integers. Rather than spending a lot of time on axiomatics and serious theorem proving, the author wanted to spend more time with examples, simple applications and with making scenic bsachy. Chapter 7 Structure of Groups. We view these chapters as studying cyclic groups and permutation groups, respectively. Beachy and William D.
Rather than inserting superficial applications at the expense of important mathematical concepts, the Beachy and Blair solid, well-organized treatment motivates the subject with concrete problems from areas that students have previously encountered, namely, the integers and polynomials over the real numbers.
Supplementary material for instructors and students available on the books Web site: They come in a nice mix from easy computations to warm the students up to more difficult theoretical problems. Beachy and Blairs clear narrative presentation beqchy to the needs of inexperienced students who stumble over proof writing, who understand definitions and theorems but cannot do the problems, and who want more examples that tie into their previous experience.
The authors introduce chapters by indicating why the material is important and, at the same time, relating the new material to things from the students background and linking the subject matter of the chapter to the broader picture. Chapter introductions, together with notes at the ends of certain chapters, provide motivation and historical context, while relating the subject matter to the broader mathematical picture. In this edition we have added about exercises, we have added 1 to all rings, and we have done our best to weed out various errors and misprints.
FEATURES Progresses students from writing proofs in the familiar setting of the integers to dealing with abstract concepts once they have gained some confidence. The intermediate chapters on groups, rings, and fields are written at a standard undergraduate level. The first two chapters on the integers and functions contain full details, in addition to comments on techniques of proof. Abstract Algebra I by Marcel B. Provides chapter introductions blqir notes that give motivation and historical context while tying the subject matter in with the broader picture.
We use the book in a linear fashion, but there are some alternatives to that approach. vlair
We would like to add Doug Bowman, Dave Rusin, and Jeff Thunder to the list of colleagues given in the preface to the second edition. Selected pages Title Page. It reads as an upper-level undergraduate text should. Instructors will find the latest edition pitched at a suitable level algdbra difficulty and will appreciate its gradual increase in the level of sophistication as the student progresses through the book.
Abstract Algebra by John A. Beachy, William D. Blair
Recognizes the developing maturity of students by raising the writing level as the book progresses. Blair Snippet view – For strong classes, there is a complete treatment of Galois theory, and for honors students, there are optional sections on advanced number theory topics.
Many nice examples, as well as good theorems often omitted from undergraduate courses. The book offers an extensive set of exercises that help to build skills in writing proofs. My library Help Advanced Book Search. Download or read it online for free here:
