CMATH 4200 Abstract Algebra

This course introduces the study of abstract algebraic systems such as groups, rings and fields, examples of which are abundant throughout mathematics and the sciences. Students will engage in the process of mathematical abstraction, the formulation of algebraic systems, and the development of an abstract theory from these systems. A significant amount of time in and out of class will be focused on reading and creating mathematical proofs.
