Abstract Algebra
MATH 4350, 4360
Fall 2019

This course is an introduction to the concepts of groups and rings from modern abstract algebra. Group theoretic topics include: modular arithmetic, groups, cyclic groups, permutation groups, normal groups, factor groups, group homomorphism and isomorphism, cosets, Lagrane's theorem, and external (internal) direct products. Ring theoretic topics include: rings, integral domain, ideals, factor rings, ring homomorphism and isomorphism, factorizations, divisibility, and fields.
This course, which is a continuation of Math 4350, further develops the theory of groups and rings and introduces the concept of field theory. Group theoretic topics include: group theory, Sylow's theorem, symmetric groups, Burnsie's theorem. Ring theoretic topics include: ring theory, polynomial rings, factorizations, and divisibility. Field theoretic topics include: extension fields, algebraic extension, finite fields, and Galois theory.
