The treatment of algebra is split into four subchapters. The first two are more elementary: identities and inequalities, presenting inequalities such as Cauchy-Schwarz, triangle, and AM-GM, but also Sturm’s method, and polynomials, with particular focus on quadratic polynomials, Viète’s relations, the location of roots, irreducibility, and Chebyshev’s polynomials. Next, a chapter on linear algebra discusses matrices, determinants, with applications to linear systems of equations and vector spaces, including the Cayley-Hamilton and Perron-Frobenius theorems, followed by a subchapter on abstract algebra, which covers groups and rings.
