An Elementary Introduction to Group Theory
by

Publisher: AMS
Number of pages: 47

Description:
The theory of groups is a branch of mathematics in which we study the concept of binaryoperations. Group theory has many applications in physics and chemistry, and is potentially applicable in any situation characterized by symmetry. The classification of finite simple groups is a major mathematical achievement of the 20th century.
