Introduction to Abstract Algebra

Abstract

This guide is written with the assumption that the reader has at least minimal familiarity with groups, rings, and homomorphisms; consult an abstract algebra text for details of any unfamiliar algebraic concept. A bibliography in the Appendix contains some suggested references. The purpose of this guide is to provide details for (and illustrations of) many of the structures and functions used in the packages in AbstractAlgebra. Many of these structures and functions are also used in the laboratory notebooks in Exploring Abstract Algebra with Mathematica. For updates to this guide, updates to the packages, as well as other related resources, the web page http://www.central.edu/eaam.html (which is mirrored at http://www.uml.edu/Dept/Math/eaam/eaam.html) can be consulted.
