  • Book Details
     
     
    2005; 336 pp

    This book presents interesting applications of abstract algebra to practical real-world problems. Especially for those whose interest in algebra is not confined to abstract theory, the text makes the study of abstract algebra more exciting and meaningful. The book is appropriate as either a text for an applied abstract algebra course or as a supplemental text for a standard course in abstract algebra. While fully developed, the algebraic theory presented is just what is required for the applications discussed in the book.

    Readership

    Undergraduate students interested in algebra.

    • This is an amazing book which contains wealth of interesting material. The manuscript is well-structured ... Coding Theory has a particularly smooth introduction. Even somebody who has not and has never wanted to major in science or mathematics can read it and understand it.

      John Dauns, Tulane University
    • It is very clearly written and unusually free of errors of any kind ... The strength of the text is the clear writing style. And from this point of view this is quite an interesting book ... The examples are clear and easy to understand

      Jeffrey D Valer, University of Texas, Austin
    • I prefer this book over the competition because it is most rigorous and has a sounder mathematical basis
