This course introduces the study of abstract algebraic systems such as groups, examples of which are abundant throughout mathematics and the sciences. It attempts to understand the process of mathematical abstraction, the formulation of algebraic systems, and the development of an abstract theory from these systems. An important objective of the course is development of skills in abstract mathematical reasoning, including the reading and writing of proofs.
