Widely acclaimed algebra text. With this approach, students gain an appreciation for how mathematical structures and their interplay lead to powerful results and insights in a number of different settings.

Abstract Algebra

The former topics, in the first appendix, were straightforward, but I had trouble wrapping my head around the Category Theory concepts, since there was a lot of stuff going on at once, and since the appendix was way to short for a really good introduction.

That would have really kept me at the edge of my seat. Lists with This Book. Deserves the reputation Apparently this is the classic Abstract Algebra book. Revised Edition Hardcover Textbooks. Had to use it for undergrad algebra decades ago. I know you’re mathematicians, but you didn’t get a PhD without surviving an English class daid two.

This book is designed to give the reader insight into the power and beauty that accrues from a rich interplay between different areas of mathematics. You may also like. No wonder it’s called the algebra bible!

This part was a little more philosophical and socioanalytical. That would have reall Wow.

Open Preview See a Problem? 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, richarv theory, polynomials, module theory, and linear algebra.


David Eddings Hardcover Books. Nonetheless, I was completely blown away by this piece of work.

This part seems a bit more s.djmmit compared to the other parts, but it was still a good introduction.

I’m not quite sure I understood the significance of what was going on in the chapter, but the exercises were still mostly fun, and maybe I’ll understand this more after taking Algebraic Topology.

Some of abstrat 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.

Apparently this is the classic Abstract Algebra book. As a general note, the layout of the book in terms of aesthetic appearance is actually among the best that I’ve s.dummig in math textbooks.

Abstract Algebra by David S. Dummit and Richard M. Foote (2003, Hardcover, Revised)

It’s a math text, so I didn’t enjoy reading it, but it is a good comprehensive overview of algebra. The Frattini subgroup was entirely relegated to the exercises but there were a large number of exercises about its basic properties. Nine months ago, my friend sent me a pdf of this book because I was interested to see what kind of problems were being assigned in her Algebra class.


The prose is often very dense at times, but usually the statements and proofs are not too difficult to follow. Introduction to Homological Algebra and Group Cohomology. This book is dense and huge. The longer, multi-part exercises often help the reader to an interesting, non-trivial result in manageable steps. The text is designed for a full-year introduction to abstract algebra at the advanced undergraduate or graduate level, but contains substantially more material than would normally be covered in one year.

Then he goes on to more rings and discusses about representation and character. 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.
