Number of pages: 102
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.

This book is written as a one semester introduction to abstract algebra. Applications of abstract algebra are not discussed. A certain amount of mathematical maturity, some familiarity with basic set theory, calculus, and linear algebra, is assumed.
by John Scherk - Chapman & Hall
The book emphasizes the computational aspects of modern abstract algebra. Author integrated the software Mathematica into the discussions -- especially in the group theory sections -- but is careful not to make any logical reliance on this software.

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 Edwin H. Connell
Covers abstract algebra in general, with the focus on linear algebra, intended for students in mathematics, physical sciences, and computer science. The presentation is compact, but still somewhat informal. The proofs of many theorems are omitted.
