First, he starts with groups, possibly alluding to his own experiences with groups. For independent study at a leisurely pace, of group theory, this book is a good first source.

The theory was very interesting, since it described algortihms for solving nonlinear systems of polynomial equations, but I did not really enjoy the exercises where I had to compute them by hand. Richard Simmons Hardcover Cookbooks. However, their style is slow. Wedderburn’s Theorem, which classified group rings over a field, was pretty cool, and in general, this part was all about using the power of linear algebra to gain more information about finite groups.

We used Axler’s excellent book “Linear Algebra Done Right,” the infamous “determinant-free” book, but nevertheless, determinants were presented in an interesting way as an alternating bilinear mapand in this book, unlike in Axler’s, we can use that every vector space has a basis.

Abstract Algebra

Modules over Principal Ideal Domains. Principles of Mathematical Analysis by RudinPaperback.

One important result proved in the exercises is that an infinite dimensional vector space is strictly smaller than its dual. Thanks for telling us about the problem.


It is fairly readable, with many excellent exercises and lots of examples.

Thorough, clear, readable, in-depth, and yet not s.duummit in that sense that mathematicians mean “readable only by experts in the field”.

It did help me survive a level Abstract Algebra class, though. The book carefully develops the theory of different algebraic structures, beginning from basic definitions to some in-depth results, using numerous examples and exercises to aid the student’s understanding. Account Options Sign in.

In that time, worked the problems in chapters and La verdad si es bueno. Your editor dropped the ball, too. Anup Roy rated it really liked it Feb 01, FooteHardcover, Revised. Chapter 10 introduces modules vector spaces over rings and some of their basic properties.

FooteHardcover, Revised 5 product ratings 4. If you’re looking for a mystery novel, this is not the choice for you. The bookcarefully develops the theory of different algebraic structures,beginning from basic definitions to some in-depth results, usingnumerous examples and exercises to aid the reader’s understanding.

This revision of Dummit and Foote’s widely acclaimed introduction to abstract algebra helps students experience the power and beauty that develops from the rich interplay between different areas of mathematics.

Some fichard these included proving that there are infinitely many primes congruent to 1 modulo any integer, classifying groups of certain orders, and determining which primes 2 is a quadratic residue modulo.


There are 20 items available. From a learner’s perspective, this book is very, very good. Widely acclaimed algebra text. The final section also discussed Frobenius Groups, which were fascinating to me; unfortunately, there was not enough m.flote to develop them in full detail, but some nice results were proven.

Subject to credit approval. Pretty good book – some very basic exercises, some suitably challenging ones; the exposition is relatively lucid and organised, the pacing comfortably slow you don’t have to do too much filling in of the gaps when it comes to proofs of important theorems and results.

Commutative Rings and Algebraic Geometry.

Then he goes on to more rings and discusses about representation and character. That would have really kept me at the edge of my seat.
