Dhude Lewis rated it it was ok Jan 07, Beacht text emphasizes the historical connections to the solution of polynomial equations and to the theory of numbers. We would like to point bwachy to both students and instructors that there is some supplementary material available on the book’s website. Chapter 9 Unique Factorization. Beachy and Bla Highly regarded by instructors in past editions for its sequencing of topics as well as its concrete approach, slightly slower beginning pace, and extensive set of exercises, the latest edition of Abstract Algebra extends the thrust wbstract the widely used earlier editions as it introduces modern abstract concepts only after a careful study of important examples.
Put the same theorems and proofs you can find in any other book and then started rewriting them ever so slightly, so it becomes their theorem and not one just copy and pasted out of another book.
We would also like to acknowledge important corrections and suggestions that we received from Marie Vitulli, of the University of Oregon, and from David Doster, of Choate Rosemary Hall.
Chapter 7 Structure of Groups.
To see what your friends thought of this book, please sign up. I blaif for sure that this book will be my first reference book in abstract algebra unless I find something better of course. Recognizes the developing maturity of students by raising the writing level as the book progresses.
Refresh and try again. I would say you have over a year worth of material in this book. Finally, we would like to thank our publisher, Neil Rowe, for his continued support of our bewchy.

Gizem Akman is currently reading it Mar 31, First thing, this book was not meant to learn from.

We have also benefitted over the years from numerous comments from our own students and from a variety of colleagues. Rather than inserting superficial applications at the expense of important mathematical concepts, the Beachy and Blair solid, well-organized treatment motivates the subject with concrete problems from areas that students have previously encountered, namely, the integers and polynomials over the real numbers.

The ring of integers and rings of polynomials are covered before abstract rings are introduced in Chapter 5. BookDB marked it as to-read Sep 22, Areg Yeghnazar rated it it was amazing Dec 31, The problems fooled me, but once I stared looking at the problems for chapter 3 and beyond I became disappointed.
Ahmad rated beahy it was amazing Jan 14, Lewis Cawthorne rated it really liked it Oct 19, People who give the book good review most likely only read abstrcat 1, 2. Beachy and Blairs clear narrative presentation responds to the needs of inexperienced students who stumble over proof writing, who understand definitions and theorems but cannot do the problems, and algebrs want more examples that tie into their previous experience. Chapter 5 also depends on Chapter 3, since we make use of facts about groups in the development of ring theory, particularly in Section 5.
Chapter 5 Commutative Rings. Since Chapter 7 continues the development of group theory, it is possible to go directly from Chapter 3 to Chapter 7. Chris Aldrich added it Dec 14, Makes a concerted effort throughout to develop key examples in detail before introducing the relevant abstract definitions. In the text only a few problems per chapter have answers in the back of the book.
Evan Shockley rated it liked it Jun 12, They are a great mix of straightforward practice, some applications, and a healthy amount of theory that occasionally dives extra deep.
