**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.
