Abstract Algebra (MATH*3130)
Code and section: MATH*3130*01
This course is an introduction to abstract algebra, covering both group theory and ring theory. Specific topics covered include an introduction to group theory, permutations, symmetric and dihedral groups, subgroups, normal subgroups and factor groups. Group theory continues through the fundamental homomorphism theorem. Ring theory material covered includes an introduction to ring theory, subrings, ideals, quotient rings, polynomial rings, and the fundamental ring homomorphism theorem.
Offered in even-numbered years.
