Summary

This book explores the essential theories and techniques of modern algebra, including its problem-solving skills, basic proof techniques, many unusual applications, and the interplay between algebra and geometry. It takes a concrete, example-oriented approach to the subject matter.

Features

  • Provides sample foundational material - both at the beginning of the text and in the appendices - while not avoiding calculus.
  • Features a "rings" first approach to make abstract concepts more accessible. Over 225 substantial examples and 750 exercises (many having multiple parts) are provided.
  • Geometry is slowly integrated through the text to make the abstract concrete and permit more structures to play with.
  • Culminates in Chapter 8 with the true integration of geometry and algebra.
  • Encourages the use of geometric models to discover the relations between group theory and geometry.
