Elements of Abstract Algebra by Allan Clark Lucid coverage of the major theories of abstract algebra, with helpful illustrations and exercises included throughout. Unabridged, corrected republication of the work originally published 1971. Bibliography. Index. Includes 24 tables and figures.
Abstract Algebra by W. E. Deskins Excellent textbook provides undergraduates with an accessible introduction to the basic concepts of abstract algebra and to the analysis of abstract algebraic systems. Features many examples and problems.
Introduction to Proof in Abstract Mathematics by Andrew Wohlgemuth This undergraduate text teaches students what constitutes an acceptable proof, and it develops their ability to do proofs of routine problems as well as those requiring creative insights. 1990 edition.
Theory of Sets by E. Kamke Introductory treatment emphasizes fundamentals, covering rudiments; arbitrary sets and their cardinal numbers; ordered sets and their ordered types; and well-ordered sets and their ordinal numbers. "Exceptionally well written." — School Science and Mathematics.
An Introduction to Linear Algebra and Tensors by M. A. Akivis, V. V. Goldberg, Richard A. Silverman Eminently readable, completely elementary treatment begins with linear spaces and ends with analytic geometry, covering multilinear forms, tensors, linear transformation, and more. 250 problems, most with hints and answers. 1972 edition.
Algebra by Larry C. Grove This graduate-level text is intended for initial courses in algebra that proceed at a faster pace than undergraduate-level courses. Subjects include groups, rings, fields, and Galois theory. 1983 edition. Includes 11 figures. Appendix. References. Index.
Abstract Algebra and Solution by Radicals by John E. Maxfield, Margaret W. Maxfield Accessible advanced undergraduate-level text starts with groups, rings, fields, and polynomials and advances to Galois theory, radicals and roots of unity, and solution by radicals. Numerous examples, illustrations, exercises, appendixes. 1971 edition.
Basic Algebra II: Second Edition by Nathan Jacobson This classic text and standard reference comprises all subjects of a first-year graduate-level course, including in-depth coverage of groups and polynomials and extensive use of categories and functors. 1989 edition.
Basic Algebra I: Second Edition by Nathan Jacobson A classic text and standard reference for a generation, this volume covers all undergraduate algebra topics, including groups, rings, modules, Galois theory, polynomials, linear algebra, and associative algebra. 1985 edition.
Abstract Lie Algebras by David J Winter Solid but concise, this account emphasizes Lie algebra's simplicity of theory, offering new approaches to major theorems and extensive treatment of Cartan and related Lie subalgebras over arbitrary fields. 1972 edition.
Linear Algebra and Projective Geometry by Reinhold Baer Geared toward upper-level undergraduates and graduate students, this text establishes that projective geometry and linear algebra are essentially identical. The supporting evidence consists of theorems offering an algebraic demonstration of certain geometric concepts. 1952 edition.
Mathematical Physics: A Popular Introduction by Francis Bitter Reader-friendly guide offers illustrative examples of the rules of physical science and how they were formulated. Direct, nontechnical terms explain methods of fact gathering, analysis, and experimentation. 60 figures. 1963 edition.
Linear Algebra by Georgi E. Shilov Covers determinants, linear spaces, systems of linear equations, linear functions of a vector argument, coordinate transformations, the canonical form of the matrix of a linear operator, bilinear and quadratic forms, and more.
Accessible but rigorous, this outstanding text encompasses all of the topics covered by a typical course in elementary abstract algebra. Its easy-to-read treatment offers an intuitive approach, featuring informal discussions followed by thematically arranged exercises. Intended for undergraduate courses in abstract algebra, it is suitable for junior- and senior-level math majors and future math teachers. This second edition features additional exercises to improve student familiarity with applications. An introductory chapter traces concepts of abstract algebra from their historical roots. Succeeding chapters avoid the conventional format of definition-theorem-proof-corollary-example; instead, they take the form of a discussion with students, focusing on explanations and offering motivation. Each chapter rests upon a central theme, usually a specific application or use. The author provides elementary background as needed and discusses standard topics in their usual order. He introduces many advanced and peripheral subjects in the plentiful exercises, which are accompanied by ample instruction and commentary and offer a wide range of experiences to students at different levels of ability.
