This book is intended for a one-year introductory course in abstract algebra with some topics of an advanced level. We give a rigorous treatment of the fundamentals of abstract algebra with numerous examples to illustrate the concepts.

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 to introduce some of the beautifully general ideas of group theory.

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.
