Abstract Algebra David S. Introduction to Module Theory.

Deserves the reputation Apparently this is the classic Abstract Algebra book. I can really see a maturing character progression in this chapter. View all 5 comments. I can overlook that. It has a good collection of exercises daivd, and these should be worked out dsvid of This book is certainly, as it proposes, thorough as far as group theory, I can vouch and certainly attains a readability that Hungerford lacks and an adherence to standard notational conventions in the more advanced algebraic regimes such as Lie algebras in which Lang is deficient.

Excellent book This is a book for advanced undergraduates and a book for graduate students. Published July 14th by Wiley first published January 1st Although these types of exercises may not be the best for improving your problem solving skills, it does feel good to apply things you’ve just learned to prove a nontrivial and interesting result.

Dec 28, David is currently reading it.

This is actually what got me interested in Algebra, since they’re relatively simple objects and yet one can still deduce a lot of interesting things about them.

Foote No preview available – The emphasis throughout has been to motivate the introduction anddevelopment of important algebraic concepts using as many examplesas possible. The last section got a bit confusing since they mixed additive and multiplicative notation for groups. The 1st talked about Ext and Tor, the second started applying cohomology to study groups, and the last two sections made the connection between the 1st and 2nd cohomology groups and group extensions.

Can’t see the tree because there are too many leaves. In this way, readers gain an appreciation for how mathematical structures and their interplay lead to powerful results and insights in a number of different settings. Select a valid country.

Boolean Rings are also introduced in the exercises. About this product Synopsis This revision of Dummit and Foote’s widely acclaimed introduction to abstract algebra helps students experience the power and richagd that develops from the rich interplay between different areas of mathematics.

The exercises were cute irchard, and they discussed proving Burnside’s Lemma using Representation Theory, proving Schur’s Lemma, proving there is no simple group of orderand my favorite classifying all finite subgroups of GL2 Q. Widely acclaimed algebra text.

Abstract Algebra

Very interesting book on algebra! Have one to sell?

Chapter 12 was actually among my favorite chapters, not only because it proved an amazing and beautiful result, but also because it tied together all the subjects that had come before it, including group theory, ring theory, polynomials, module theory, and linear algebra.


You will not regret it. The Frattini subgroup was entirely relegated to the exercises but there were a large number of exercises about its basic properties. This question contains spoilers… view spoiler [How can I read it?? To ask other readers questions about Abstract Algebraplease sign up.

RowlingHardcover Read, highlight, and take notes, across web, tablet, and phone. The book is pretty clear and concise in its presentation of the material, and its exercises are more than just problems tacked on at the end of a section the section references them, problems reference each other, new concepts are introduced, and some pretty cool stuff is included.
