MMA501 Abstract Algebra
Algebra is one of the fundamental branches of modern mathematics. It has its origins in the theory of numbers and geometry. The aim of the course is to find, through examples, the mathematical structures underlying concepts in number theory and geometry. The course focuses on the basic algebraic structures groups, rings and fields that are important in many different branches of mathematics and its applications. These structures, groups, rings and fields, are applied in multiple contexts such as symmetry analysis, counting and enumeration problems, coding theory, combinatorial designs, physics, computer science and robotics.
