MAT 354 - Modern Algebra


This course consists of the axiomatic study of algebraic structures (groups, rings and fields) that develop out of traditional elementary algebra. The study of groups include cyclic groups, factor groups, and permutation groups. The study of rings and fields includes integral domains, ideals, extension fields and Galois fields. Applications to semiconductors, information theory and error correcting codes are used to illustrate the concepts.

Prerequisite: MAT 206 .
1 semester 3 credits.
