This book is very accurate and nicely written, with very few typos all of them minora very good choice and variety of relevant exercises at different level of complexity the majority of them are actually pretty easywith minimal and only occasional hand-waving; galian is also josephh book rich with examples a critical feature in a subject that sometimes can sorely test the abstract thinking capabilities of even the keenest readerand presenting a tightly organized and generally reader-friendly progression of concepts and techniques.

Arul rated it did not like it Aug 19, Christopher Farah rated it really liked it Nov 08, If you don’t like this book, then fuck you. There are no discussion topics on this book yet. I would rather the author attract readers’ interest by showing them the power of the algebraic structures discussed.

Be the first to ask a question about Contemporary Abstract Algebra. Because the book is in multiple parts, I will be taking some time to study a few other topics and the come back to this awesome book. Feb 01, Nitin Pant rated it really liked it. In summary, my general experience with this book has been quite a positive one; independently of the quality of this particular book, I must also say that studying abstract algebra has been for me a rewarding intellectual journey I did study some abstract algebra at university, but it was only at introductory level and manly focused on vector spacesas it is very remarkable how, by starting just with the basic definition of an extremely simple concept such as that of a group, whole worlds of progressively richer and more complex structures, patterns and relationships are progressively unveiled in a process of enthralling discovery.


Contemporary Abstract Algebra by Joseph A. Gallian

Rizwan rated it it was amazing Jul 20, I cannot wait to get back into it. This book doesn’t give you any real idea what the heck algebra is good for and doesn’t provide any real connections to anything else.

Not a perfect book abstrract any means, and possibly too basic in some areas, but a solid good textbook recommended to anybody interested in a treatment of this fascinating subject delivered, with a good pedagogical approach, at senior undergraduate level.

Jovany Agathe rated it did not like it Nov 28, Gauri Singh rated it really liked it Nov 20, The best intro to abstract algebra out there. Going through the class and actually reading the book, it is actually a really useful guide. This book changed my life! In fact, structure and symmetry are a fundamental aspect of physical reali Before I delve into an analysis of this excellent textbook, let me highlight first that abstract algebra, contrary to much uniformed opinion, is not a specialistic, esoteric field in pure mathematics characterized by very limited applicability to the physical world.

Refresh and try again. Supposedly this is not a children’s book, vallian it is full of pictures and blurbs about random dead people. Want to Read Currently Reading Read.

No one should buy this book or require it for a course at such an exorbitant price. Sep 06, WarpDrive rated it really liked it Shelves: Herstein for the mathematics undergrad.

It is simply disgusting. I feel like the book was good for a few concepts, but for the most part I had to rely on the internet. Apr 16, Jerzy rated it it was amazing Shelves: This book doesn’t give you any real idea what the heck algebra is good for and doesn’t This book is OK as far as presenting abstract algebra in the usual way to undergrads.


Colin Grove rated it it was ok Aug 01, This book is the reason I became a mathematician. Lists with This Book. This book is OK as far as presenting abstract algebra in the usual way to undergrads. There were a few places in the book that took some time to get through and were confusing, however; with some additional aid online made it through to rings.

Numerous easy exercises, which is fine, although it might be nice if there were more challenging ones too. Return abstrwct Book Page. My favorite textbook of all time!

I have read many books on abstract algebra and my personal experience is this: Aug 15, Margaretha Dc rated it really liked it. OK, now that justice has been rendered to this fascinating and beautiful subject, the time has finally come for me to review this informative University textbook, which represents a very good introductory treatment of the fundamental elements of abstract algebra group theory, rings, fields at a level which is typically addressed at senior Mathematics undergraduate stage.

This book is so amazing Groups and rings are extremely powerful concepts, but to read this book you would think they are just a game where you write down some axioms and see what random statements you can prove.
