Book Description
Geared toward upperlevel undergraduates and graduate students, this text surveys fundamental algebraic structures and maps between these structures. Its techniques are used in many areas of mathematics, with applications to physics, engineering, and computer science as well. Author Robert B. Ash, a Professor of Mathematics at the University of Illinois, focuses on intuitive thinking. He also conveys the intrinsic beauty of abstract algebra while keeping the proofs as brief and clear as possible.
The early chapters provide students with background by investigating the basic properties of groups, rings, fields, and modules. Later chapters examine the relations between groups and sets, the fundamental theorem of Galois theory, and the results and methods of abstract algebra in terms of algebraic number theory, algebraic geometry, noncommutative algebra, and homological algebra, including categories and functors. An extensive supplement to the text delves much further into homological algebra than most introductory texts, offering applicationsoriented results. Solutions to all problems appear in the text.

Abstract Algebra: Theory and Applications (Thomas W Judson)
This book is designed to teach the principles and theory of abstract algebra to college juniors and seniors in a rigorous manner. Its strengths include a wide range of exercises, both computational and theoretical, plus many nontrivial applications.

Advanced Modern Algebra (Joseph J. Rotman)
More than merely a succession of definitiontheoremproofs, this text put results and ideas in context so that students can appreciate why a certain topic is being studied, and where definitions originate.

Quaternion Algebras (John Voight)
This open access textbook presents a comprehensive treatment of the arithmetic theory of Quaternion Algebras and orders, a subject with applications in diverse areas of mathematics. Numerous pathways offer explorations in many different directions.

Elementary Abstract Algebra: Examples and Applications
It introduces the basic notions of group theory by a thorough treatment of important examples, including complex numbers, modular arithmetic, symmetries, and permutations, also applications to communications, cryptography, and coding theory.

Algebra: Abstract and Concrete (Frederick M. Goodman)
This introduction to modern or abstract algebra addresses the conventional topics of groups, rings, and fields with symmetry as a unifying theme, while it introduces readers to the active practice of mathematics.

Set Theoretic Approach to Algebraic Structures in Mathematics
This book brings out how sets in algebraic structures can be used to construct the most generalized algebraic structures, like set linear algebra / vector space, set ideals in groups and rings and semigroups, and topological set vector spaces.

Advanced Algebra (Anthony W. Knapp)
This book is on modern algebra which treat various topics in commutative and noncommutative algebra and provide introductions to the theory of associative algebras, homological algebras, algebraic number theory, and algebraic geometry.

Algebra: A Classical Approach (Jon Blakely)
This book provides a complete and contemporary perspective on classical polynomial algebra through the exploration of how it was developed and how it exists today, with discrete explanations from functions to quadratic and linear equations, etc.

Linear Algebra (Jim Hefferon)
This textbook covers linear systems and Gauss' method, vector spaces, linear maps and matrices, determinants, and eigenvectors and eigenvalues. Each chapter has three or four discussions of additional topics and applications.

Algebra: A Computational Introduction (John Scherk)
This book is a unique approach and presentation, the author demonstrates how software can be used as a problemsolving tool for algebra. It includes many computations, both as examples and as exercises.

A Computational Introduction to Number Theory and Algebra
This introductory book emphasises algorithms and applications, such as cryptography and error correcting codes, and is accessible to a broad audience. It covers the basics of number theory, abstract algebra and discrete probability theory.

Fundamentals of Matrix Algebra (Gregory Hartman)
A college (or advanced high school) level text dealing with the basic principles of matrix and linear algebra. It covers solving systems of linear equations, matrix arithmetic, the determinant, eigenvalues, and linear transformations.

Computational Linear Algebra and Ndimensional Geometry
This undergraduate textbook on Linear Algebra and nDimensional Geometry, in a selfteaching style, is invaluable for sophomore level undergraduates in mathematics, engineering, business, and the sciences.
