Syllabus for
Math 427, Section G, Fall 2016

Honors Abstract Algebra

Text book: None required. There are several textbooks that are free online. The best ones I know of are by Paul Garrett: Intro to Abstract Algebra and Abstract Algebra . The first is an undergraduate level text, the second one is a text for a year long graduate course.

Another free textbook I know of is by Frederick M. Goodman, Algebra: Abstract and Concrete (Edition 2.6), SemiSimple Press Iowa City, IA. [PDF file ] This text is vague at the beginning and rather wordy and inefficient in places. On the other hand it is fairly easy to read.

We will study properties of integers, group theory and ring theory.
