Introduction to Abstract Algebra provides insight into the methods of abstract algebra. This book provides information pertinent to the fundamental concepts of abstract algebra. Organized into five chapters, this book begins with an overview of the study of natural numbers that are used historically for the purpose of counting the objects in This book is designed to introduce the reader to the theory of semisimple Lie algebras over an algebraically closed field of characteristic 0, with emphasis on representations.

representation theory. In Chapter 8, we give a brief introduction to homological algebra and explain how it can be applied to categories of representations. Finally, in Chapter 9 we give a short introduction to the repre-sentation theory of nite dimensional algebras. Besides, the book contains six historical interludes written by ~etingof/ Abstract: Very roughly speaking, representation theory studies symmetry in linear spaces. It is a beautiful mathematical subject which has many applications, ranging from number theory and combinatorics to geometry, probability theory, quantum mechanics, and quantum field ://
applications of abstract algebra. A basic knowledge of set theory, mathe-matical induction, equivalence relations, and matrices is a must. Even more important is the ability to read and understand mathematical proofs. In this chapter we will outline the background needed for a course in abstract algebra.

The book is also suitable as independent reading for interested students at that level as well as a primary source for a one-semester course that The book under review dates toand its title might make modern readers expect its contents to range over groups, rings, fields, modules, etc., topics which today fall under the umbrella of “abstract algebra”.
That is entirely not the case. A more informative title these days would be “An introduction to universal algebra”. This book is designed to introduce the reader to the theory of semisimple Lie algebras over an algebraically closed field of characteristic 0, with emphasis on representations.

If you’re lucky enough to bump into a mathematician then you might get something along the lines of: “Algebra is the abstract encapsulation of our intuition for composition”.~apaulin/ A GENTLE INTRODUCTION TO ABSTRACT ALGEBRA B.A.
