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.

These notes are intended for an introduction to algebra. The text is intended as a first introduction to the ideas of proof and abstraction in mathematics, as well as to the concepts of abstract algebra (groups and rings).
by F. Oggier - Nanyang Technological University
Contents: Group Theory (Groups and subgroups, The isomorphism theorems); Ring Theory (Rings, ideals and homomorphisms); Field Theory (Field extension and minimal polynomial); Galois Theory (Galois group and fixed fields).

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.
