Galois Groups and Fundamental Groups
by Leila Schneps
Publisher: Cambridge University Press 2003
Number of pages: 467
This book contains eight articles which focus on presenting recently developed new aspects of the theory of Galois groups and fundamental groups, avoiding classical aspects which have already been developed at length in the standard literature. Each article strives to be introductory, while containing original results.

This course brings together two areas of mathematics that each concern symmetry -- symmetry in algebra, in the case of Galois theory; and symmetry in geometry, in the case of fundamental groups. Prerequisites are courses in algebra and analysis.

In this text, a modern presentation of the fundamental notions of Group Theory is chosen, where the language of commutative diagrams and universal properties, so necessary in Modern Mathematics, in Physics and Computer Science, is introduced.
by P. J. Higgins - Van Nostrand Reinhold
A self-contained account of the elementary theory of groupoids and some of its uses in group theory and topology. Category theory appears as a secondary topic whenever it is relevant to the main issue, and its treatment is by no means systematic.
