Includes such optional topics as finite fields, the Sylow theorems, finite abelian groups, the simplicity of PSL 2 FEuclidean domains, unique factorization domains, cyclotomic polynomials, arithmetic functions, Moebius inversion, quadratic reciprocity, primitive roots, and diophantine equations.
With students who already have some acquaintance with the material in Chapters 1 and 2, it would be possible to begin with Aand 3, on groups, using the first two chapters for a reference.
We would like to add Doug Bowman, Dave Rusin, and Jeff Thunder to the list of colleagues given in the preface to the second edition. A number theory thread runs throughout several optional sections, and there is an overview of techniques for computing Galois groups.
We believe that our responses to his suggestions and corrections have measurably improved the book. BeachyWilliam D. Provides chapter introductions and notes that give motivation and historical context while tying the subject matter in with the broader picture. Finally, we would like to thank our publisher, Neil Rowe, for his continued support of our writing. My library Help Advanced Book Search.
In this edition we have added about exercises, we have added 1 to all rings, and we have done our best to weed out various errors and misprints. The book offers an extensive set of exercises that help to build skills in writing proofs.

Instructors will find the latest edition pitched at a suitable level of difficulty and will appreciate abstrxct gradual increase in the level of sophistication as the student progresses through the book. Chapter 9 Unique Factorization. Chapter 5 Commutative Rings. We have also benefitted over the years from numerous comments from our own students and from a variety of colleagues.
The text emphasizes the historical connections to the solution of polynomial equations and to the theory of numbers.
