Abstract Algebra by John A. Highly regarded by instructors in past editions for its sequencing of topics as well as its concrete approach, slightly slower beginning pace, and extensive set of exercises, the latest edition of Abstract Algebra extends the thrust of the widely used earlier editions as it introduces modern abstract concepts only after a careful study of important examples. BeachyWilliam D. With students who already have some acquaintance with the material in Chapters 1 and 2, it would be possible to begin with Chapter 3, on groups, using the first two chapters for a reference.

The text emphasizes the historical connections to the solution of polynomial equations and to the theory of numbers. Finan – Arkansas Tech University Contents: Recognizes the developing maturity of students by raising the writing level as the book progresses.
For example, cyclic groups are introduced in Chapter 1 in the context of number theory, and permutations are studied in Chapter 2, before abstract groups are introduced in Chapter 3. Blair Snippet view – We use the book in a linear fashion, but there are some alternatives to that approach.
Beachy and William D. Introduction to Abstract Algebra by D. Instructors will find the latest edition pitched at a suitable level of difficulty and will appreciate its gradual increase in the level of sophistication as the student progresses through the book.
It contains solutions to all exercises. I like this balance very much. Makes a concerted effort throughout to develop key examples in detail before introducing the relevant abstract definitions.
They come in a nice mix from easy computations to warm the students up to more difficult theoretical problems. Separating the two hurdles of devising proofs and grasping abstract mathematics makes abstract algebra more accessible.
ABSTRACT ALGEBRA ON LINE
We give a rigorous treatment of the fundamentals of abstract algebra with numerous examples to illustrate the concepts.
Sen – Creighton University This book algebar intended for a one-year introductory course in abstract algebra with some topics of anr advanced level. Rather than outlining a large beahcy of possible paths through various parts of the text, we have to ask the instructor to read ahead and use a great deal of caution in choosing any paths other than the ones we have suggested above.
Chapter 5 contains basic facts about commutative rings, and contains many examples which depend on a knowledge of polynomial rings from Chapter bfachy. Highly regarded by instructors in past editions for its sequencing of topics as well as its concrete approach, slightly slower beginning pace, and extensive set of exercises, the latest edition of Abstract Algebra extends the thrust of the widely used earlier editions as it introduces modern abstract concepts only after a careful study of important examples.
The first two chapters on the integers and functions contain full details, in addition to comments on techniques of proof. Contents Chapter 1 Integers.

Abstract Algebra John A. Chapter 7 Structure of Groups. FEATURES Progresses students from writing proofs in the familiar setting of bkair integers to dealing with abstract concepts once they have gained some confidence. Chapter 5 also depends on Chapter 3, since we make use of facts about groups in the development of ring theory, particularly in Section 5.

Chapter 8 Galois Theory. The exercises are the main reason I am interested in this book.
Provides chapter introductions and notes that give motivation and historical context while tying the subject matter in with the broader picture. Waveland PressJan 5, – Mathematics – pages. We would also like to acknowledge important corrections and suggestions that we received from Marie Vitulli, of the University of Oregon, and from David Doster, of Choate Rosemary Hall.
After covering Chapter 5, it is possible to go directly to Chapter 9, which has abstgact ring theory and some applications to number theory. Third Edition John A. 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.
