Introductory Modern Algebra: An Historical Approach by Saul Stahl
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Much of modern algebra has its roots in the solvability of equations by radicals. This look at the history of algebra follows a paper trail from the Renaissance solution of the cubic equation to Galois' description of his ideas. All important concepts are placed in their historical context.

Table of Contents

The early history; complex numbers; solutions of equations; modular arithmetic; the binomial theorem and modular exponents; polynomials over a field; Galois fields; permutations; groups; quotient groups and their uses; topics in elementary group theory.
