Praise for the first edition"This book is clearly written and presents a large number of examples illustrating the theory ... there is no other book of comparable content available. Because of its detailed coverage of applications generally neglected in the literature, it is a desirable if not essential addition to undergraduate mathematics and computer science libraries."--CHOICEAs a cornerstone of mathematical science, the importance of modern algebra and discrete structures to many areas of science and technology is apparent and growing-with extensive use in computing science, physics, chemistry, and data communications as well as in areas of mathematics such as combinatorics. Blending the theoretical with the practical in the instruction of modern algebra, Modern Algebra with Applications, Second Edition provides interesting and important applications of this subject-effectively holding your interest and creating a more seamless method of instruction. Incorporating the applications of modern algebra throughout its authoritative treatment of the subject, this book covers the full complement of group, ring, and field theory typically contained in a standard modern algebra course. Numerous examples are included in each chapter, and answers to odd-numbered exercises are appended in the back of the text. Chapter topics include: *Boolean Algebras*Polynomial and Euclidean Rings*Groups*Quotient Rings*Quotient Groups*Field Extensions*Symmetry Groups in Three Dimensions*Latin Squares*Polya--Burnside Method of Enumeration*Geometrical Constructions *Monoids and Machines*Error-Correcting Codes*Rings and FieldsIn addition to improvements in exposition, this fully updated Second Edition also contains new material on order of an element and cyclic groups, more details about the lattice of divisors of an integer, and new historical notes. Filled with in-depth insights and over 600 exercises of varying difficulty, Modern Algebra with Applications, Second Edition can help anyone appreciate and understand this subject

Modern algebra with applications by William J Gilbert( Recording )

1 edition published in 2002 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Modern algebra is usually taught from the point of view of its intrinsic interest, and students are told that applications will appear in later courses. Many students lose interest when they do not see the relevance of the subject and often become skeptical of the perennial explanation that the material will be used later. However, the author believes that, by providing interesting and nontrivial applications as we proceed, the student will better appreciate and understand the subject. The book covers all the group, ring, and field theory that is usually contained in a standard modern algebra course.-Back cover
