Elementary Abstract Algebra: Examples and Applications
by Justin Hill, Chris Thron
Publisher: Texas A&M University 2017
Number of pages: 785
This book is our best effort at making Abstract Algebra as down-to earth as possible. We use concrete mathematical structures such as the complex numbers, integers mod n, symmetries, and permutations to introduce some of the beautifully general ideas of group theory.

This book is on abstract algebra, an advanced set of topics related to algebra, including groups, rings, ideals, fields, and more. Readers of this book are expected to have read and understand Algebra, and Linear Algebra books.

This book covers basic abstract algebra. Rather than spending a lot of time on axiomatics and serious theorem proving, the author wanted to spend more time with examples, simple applications and with making scenic detours.

After a short introductory chapter consisting mainly of reminders about such topics as functions, equivalence relations, matrices, polynomials and permutations, the notes fall into two chapters, dealing with rings and groups respectively.

This text is intended for a one- or two-semester undergraduate course in abstract algebra and covers the traditional theoretical aspects of groups, rings, and fields. Many applications are included, including coding theory and cryptography.
