    Summary Of The Book

    Topics in Algebra by I.N Herstein is a good student guide for understanding theorems like Galois Theory, finite groups, group theory, vector spaces, fields, and more. This contains abstract algebra exercises for students to get a better understanding.

    About I. N. Herstein

    Israel Nathan Herstein had researched and written extensively on ring theory in algebra.

    He is best known for Topics in Algebra which deals with abstract algebra. He had also written on the Carus Mathematical Monographs in Noncommutative Ring. Matters Mathematical, Some Aspects of Ring Theory, and Abstract Algebra are some of his other works.

    He was a Polish mathematician whose published works have helped undergraduate students with linear algebra, mathematical economics and noncommutative ring theory. He was born on 28th March, 1923. Coming from an impoverished background, he had worked his way through school and college. He had completed his B.S degree from the University of Manitoba. He had acquired his M.A. from University of Toronto. He had been associated as a professor of Mathematics in the University of Pennsylvania, Ohio State University, and the University of Kansas.

    Best Book On Algebraic Structures

    This is the best among all the books on same topic. This is Necessary as well as Sufficient Book to under stand Basics of Algebraic Structures (Groups, Rings, Field & Vector Spaces). Very Very Very Helpful If you are planning for self study Specially for Exams like IAS & IFoS.

    Classic

    I wish all Mathematics books can be made like this one. Undoubtedly one of the best that I have read. I have also read Martin's book on the same topic but I would suggest this book. The text is easy to follow and the rigor that one looks for in a good book, startles you.

    Classic

    Herstein's book on algebra is a classic now. Herstein, a highly gifted expositor, provides a solid treatment of groups, rings, fields, a bit of galois theory, theory of vector spaces, linear transformations and matrices, and some special topics such as Wedderburn's, Jacobson's and Lagrange's four square theorem.

    Herstein conveys ideas through motivation, theory, examples and problems. A good book on abstract mathematics has to have interesting and illustrative problems, and this is where Her...

    Compact, self-contained textbook

    Compact and self-contained, this book takes off from where high mathematics left.It is extremely rewarding and yet, a bit terse and dry.It provides a good dashboard before diving into other areas.The linear algebra is not a problem with those exercises requiring linear algebra marked with a #.Secondly, the book is well-organised with a compact section on group theory occupying nearly 119 pages.Highly recommended for advanced high school students and undergraduates.
