By Israel Kleiner

sooner than the 19th century, algebra intended the learn of the answer of polynomial equations. through the 20th century it got here to surround the learn of summary, axiomatic platforms corresponding to teams, jewelry, and fields. This presentation offers an account of the background of the fundamental innovations, effects, and theories of summary algebra.
The improvement of summary algebra was once propelled through the necessity for brand spanking new instruments to deal with definite classical difficulties that seemed unsolvable by way of classical potential. an important topic of the strategy during this e-book is to teach how summary algebra has arisen in makes an attempt to resolve a few of these classical difficulties, supplying a context from which the reader may well achieve a deeper appreciation of the math involved.
Mathematics teachers, algebraists, and historians of technological know-how will locate the paintings a precious reference. The e-book can also function a supplemental textual content for classes in summary algebra or the background of mathematics.
