Basic Algebra Cornerstones 1st edition by Anthony W. Knapp

Basic Algebra and Advanced Algebra systematically develop concepts and tools in algebra that are vital to every mathematician, whether pure or applied, aspiring or established. Together, the two books give the reader a global view of algebra and its role in mathematics as a whole. Key topics and features of Basic Algebra: *Linear algebra and group theory build on each other continually *Chapters on modern algebra treat groups, rings, fields, modules, and Galois groups, with emphasis on methods of computation throughout *Three prominent themes recur and blend together at times: the analogy between integers and polynomials in one variable over a field, the interplay between linear algebra and group theory, and the relationship between number theory and geometry *Many examples and hundreds of problems are included, along with a separate 90-page section giving hints or complete solutions for most of the problems *The exposition proceeds from the particular to the general, often providing examples well before a theory that incorporates them; includes blocks of problems that introduce additional topics and applications for further study
