About the course

These are the lecture notes for the algebra part of the MT2002 module. This part will consist of (about) 24 lectures, 10 tutorials, 2 projects using Maple and GAP, and some additional sessions.

The literature for the algebra part is as follows:

R.B.J.T. Allenby,
Rings, Fields and Groups, Edward Arnold, 1983.
T.S. Blyth and E.F. Robertson,
Essential Student Algebra, Volume 3: Abstract Algebra, Chapman and Hall, 1986.
T.S. Blyth and E.F. Robertson,
Algebra Through Practice, Book 3: Groups, Rings and Fields, Cambridge University Press, 1984.
D.A.R. Wallace,
Groups, Rings and Fields, Springer, 1998.
These books will be available on short loan in the Mathematics/Physics library, as will tutorial questions and solutions. In addition, any book containing the words `elementary' or `introduction' and `algebra' or `groups' is likely to be useful.

The assessment for this module will consist of a continuous assessment component (30%), and a three hour written exam at the end of semester (70%). The continuous assessment component will consist of two class tests, and three Microlab Assignments.
