2013 Summer Term
An introductory survey of abstract algebra and number theory with emphasis on the development and study of the number systems of integers, integers mod n, rationals, reals, and complex numbers. These offer examples of and motivation for the study of the classical algebraic structures of groups, rings integral domains and fields. Applications to algebraic coding theory and crystallography will be developed if time allows.
