**Galois Groups and Fundamental Groups**

by David Meredith

**Publisher**: San Francisco State University 1999**Number of pages**: 89

**Description**:

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 at least one course in algebra and analysis.

**An Elementary Introduction to Group Theory**

**AMS**

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.
