1218 SAS Hall - This course covers topics in algebra that are ominipresent in mathematics and have numerous applications in science and engineering. We will learn definitions and properties groups, as well as important examples fo groups such as permutation groups,Lagrange's theorem, the classification of finite abelian groups, normal subgroups, quotient groups,etc. Towards the end of the course we will learn about more sphisticated algebraic structures such as rings (polynomial ring is a good example), ideals, and integral domains.
