Algebra through practice : a collection of problems in algebra with solutions by
T. S Blyth(
Book
)
88 editions published between 1984 and 2007 in English and Italian and held by 522 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Problem solving is an art that is central to understanding and ability in mathematics. With this series of books the authors have provided a selection of problems with complete solutions and test papers designed to be used with or instead of standard textbooks on algebra. For the convenience of the reader, a key explaining how the present books may be used in conjunction with some of the major textbooks is included. Each book of problems is divided into chapters that begin with some notes on notation and prerequisites. The majority of the material is aimed at the student of average ability but there are some more challenging problems. By working through the books, the student will gain a deeper understanding of the fundamental concepts involved, and practice in the formulation, and so solution, of other algebraic problems. Later books in the series cover material at a more advanced level than the earlier titles, although each is, within its own limits, selfcontained

Basic linear algebra by
T. S Blyth(
Book
)
33 editions published between 1998 and 2007 in English and German and held by 473 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Basic Linear Algebra is a text for first year students leading from concrete examples to abstract theorems, via tutorialtype exercises. More exercises (of the kind a student may expect in examination papers) are grouped at the end of each section. The book covers the most important basics of any first course on linear algebra, explaining the algebra of matrices with applications to analytic geometry, systems of linear equations, difference equations and complex numbers." "Linear equations are treated via Hermite normal forms which provides a successful and concrete explanation of the notion of linear independence. Another important highlight is the connection between linear mappings and matrices leading to the change of basis theorem which opens the door to the notion of similarity."BOOK JACKET

Proceedings of groups : St. Andrew's 1985 by
E. F Robertson(
Book
)
22 editions published between 1986 and 1999 in English and held by 329 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This book contains selected papers from the international conference Groups  St Andrews 1985. Five leading group theorists  Bachmuth, Baumslag, Neuman, Roseblade and Tits  have presented survey articles based on short lecture courses given at the conference and the rest of the book comprises both survey and research articles contributed by other conference speakers. The many articles with their wealth of references demonstrate the richness and vitality of modern group theory and its many connections with other area of mathematics. The book will prove invaluable to both experienced researchers and new postgraduates whose interests involve group theory

Further linear algebra by
T. S Blyth(
Book
)
15 editions published between 2001 and 2006 in English and held by 283 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Further Linear Algebra is a natural sequel to the authors' highly acclaimed SUMS volume "Basic Linear Algebra". The more advanced topics covered here take the reader to the very heart of the subject, and include inner product spaces, direct sums of subspaces, the primary decomposition theorem and various canonical forms for matrices. Furthermore, the authors provide a brief introduction to the use of MAPLE in linear algebra calculations, and biographical profiles of eminent mathematicians associated with the subject. An introductory chapter recaps the prerequisites (for those readers unfamiliar with the first volume), and a wide range of worked examples and exercises (with solutions) are strategically placed throughout the text to consolidate understanding

C. M Campbell(
Book
)
31 editions published in 1991 in English and Undetermined and held by 280 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
These volumes contain selected papers presented at the international conference on group theory held in St Andrews in 1989. The themes of the conference were combinatorial and computational group theory; four leading group theorists (J. A. Green, N. D. Gupta, O. H. Kegel and J. G. Thompson) gave courses whose content is reproduced here. Also included are refereed papers presented at the meeting. The many articles with their wealth of references demonstrate the richness and vitality of modern group theory and its varied connections with other areas of mathematics. These will be essential references for research and postgraduate mathematicians whose work involves group theory

IT, as it is often said, mathematics is the queen of science then algebra is surely the jewel in her crown. In the course of its vast development over the last halfcentury, algebra has emerged as the subject in which one can observe pure mathe matical reasoning at its best. Its elegance is matched only by the everincreasing number of its applications to an extraordinarily wide range of topics in areas other than 'pure' mathematics. Here our objective is to present, in the form of a series of five concise volumes, the fundamentals of the subject. Broadly speaking, we have covered in all the now traditional syllabus that is found in first and second year university courses, as well as some third year material. Further study would be at the level of 'honours options'. The reasoning that lies behind this modular presentation is simple, namely to allow the student (be he a mathematician or not) to read the subject in a way that is more appropriate to the length, content, and extent, of the various courses he has to take. Although we have taken great pains to include a wide selec tion of illustrative examples, we have not included any exer cises. For a suitable companion collection of worked examples, we would refer the reader to our series Algebra through practice (Cambridge University Press), the first five books of which are appropriate to the material covered here

Every four years, leading researchers gather to survey the latest developments in all aspects of group theory. Since 1981, the proceedings of those meetings have provided a regular snapshot of the state of the art in group theory and helped to shape the direction of research in the field. This volume contains selected papers from the 2013 meeting held in St Andrews. It begins with major articles from each of the four main speakers: Emmanuel Breuillard (ParisSud), Martin Liebeck (Imperial College London), Alan Reid (Texas) and Karen Vogtmann (Cornell). These are followed by, in alphabetical order, survey articles contributed by other conference participants, which cover a wide spectrum of modern group theory
