Overview:
P: S303  Meets with MATHM 403 
This course is an introduction to abstract algebra. We will be using M. Artin's "Algebra" 2nd
edition and will concentrate on some indepth study of linear algebra and group theory. The
participants will be required to handle rigorous mathematical proofs, although no previous
experience with rigorous mathematics is a prerequisite. This course will continue in the Spring
semester as S404.
