Jasashwi Mandal rated it it was amazing Oct 02, James Nance rated it liked it Oct 09, Going through the class and actually reading the book, it is actually a really useful guide. This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers.

None of this is unique to this book. I Working through the first two parts of the book has opened my mind to the real possibilities of Mathematics.

There are two problems. Aug 15, Margaretha Dc rated it really liked it.

In general, abstract algebra and group absstract in particular provides a framework for constructing analogies or models from abstractions, and for the manipulation of those abstractions to design new systems, make predictions and posit new hypotheses.

The first problem is, I don’t believe in the purely abstract approach to teaching a first course in algebra which this book uses. This book is so amazing Apr 16, Jerzy rated it it was amazing Shelves: Want to Read Currently Reading Read.


Hardcoverpages. Groups and rings are extremely powerful concepts, but to read this book you would think they are just a game where you write down some axioms and see what random statements you can prove. This book doesn’t give you any real idea what the heck algebra is good for and doesn’t provide any real connections to anything else. Poincare’ invariance is the fundamental symmetry in particle physics: Lists with This Book. I did find useful information that helped me in the class, but it was very limited.

Aug 22, Narendra rated it really liked it. Going beyond the realm of fundamental physics, molecular symmetry is a fundamental concept in chemistry, as it can predict or explain many of a molecule’s chemical properties such as its dipole moment.

This book is OK as far as presenting galliaj algebra in the usual way to undergrads.

May 12, Anne rated it it was amazing Shelves: Before I gallain into an analysis of this excellent textbook, let me highlight first that abstract algebra, contrary to much uniformed opinion, is not a specialistic, esoteric field in pure mathematics characterized by very limited applicability to the physical world.


Thanks for telling us about the problem. Sep 06, WarpDrive rated it really liked it Shelves: Feb 11, Kolya Matteo rated it it was amazing Shelves: I have read many books on abstract algebra and my personal experience is this: This is an awesome book.

Supposedly this aabstract not a children’s book, but it is full of pictures and blurbs about random dead people. Apr 29, Michael rated it did not like it Shelves: In fact, structure and symmetry are a fundamental aspect of physical reality.

I love that the author takes time to express useful applications of the materials abstradt covered. It might well be argued that science is nothing but the discovery of symmetries, patterns and structures that define reality at its most fundamental level.

An acquired taste, just like black coffee with no sugar.
