Abstract Algebra: An Interactive Approach, Second Edition by William Paulsen

By William Paulsen

The re-creation of Abstract Algebra: An Interactive Approach provides a hands-on and standard method of studying teams, jewelry, and fields. It then is going extra to supply non-compulsory know-how use to create possibilities for interactive studying and desktop use.

This new version bargains a extra conventional procedure supplying extra issues to the first syllabus put after fundamental themes are coated. This creates a extra usual move to the order of the topics offered. This version is reworked via historic notes and higher factors of why issues are coated.

This cutting edge textbook indicates how scholars can higher take hold of tough algebraic suggestions by using laptop courses. It encourages scholars to scan with a number of functions of summary algebra, thereby acquiring a real-world viewpoint of this area.

Each bankruptcy comprises, corresponding Sage notebooks, conventional routines, and a number of other interactive computing device difficulties that make the most of Sage and Mathematica® to discover teams, jewelry, fields and extra topics.

This textual content doesn't sacrifice mathematical rigor. It covers classical proofs, equivalent to Abel’s theorem, in addition to many issues now not present in most traditional introductory texts. the writer explores semi-direct items, polycyclic teams, Rubik’s Cube®-like puzzles, and Wedderburn’s theorem. the writer additionally comprises challenge sequences that permit scholars to delve into attention-grabbing subject matters, together with Fermat’s sq. theorem.
