# Advanced Modern Algebra: Third Edition, Part 2

Share this page
*Joseph J. Rotman*

This book is the second part of the new edition of Advanced Modern Algebra (the first part published as Graduate Studies in Mathematics, Volume 165). Compared to the previous edition, the material has been significantly reorganized and many sections have been rewritten. The book presents many topics mentioned in the first part in greater depth and in more detail. The five chapters of the book are devoted to group theory, representation theory, homological algebra, categories, and commutative algebra, respectively. The book can be used as a text for a second abstract algebra graduate course, as a source of additional material to a first abstract algebra graduate course, or for self-study.

#### Readership

Graduate students and researchers interested in learning and teaching algebra.

#### Reviews & Endorsements

This is a good book and a fitting tribute to a great mathematical expositor. I'll keep both the second edition and the two parts of the third edition on my shelf, and I'm sure I'll turn to them often in the future.

-- Fernando Q. Gouvêa, MAA Reviews
