There is for example a natural connection between particle physics and representation theory of abstract algebra, linking the properties of elementary particles to the structure of Lie Groups and Lie Algebras in particular, the different quantum states of any given elementary particle corresponds to an irreducible representation of the Poincare’ group. This book is the reason I became a mathematician.

Adding hours on a clock, for example, is like working in a cyclic group; many manufacturing processes might be shown to be isomorphic to products of permutations of a finite group; and group theory and abstract algebra applied to molecular systems biology support the design agstract new drugs. Thanks for telling us about the problem. No trivia or quizzes yet.

Hardly contemporary if you ask me! If you don’t like this book, then fuck you. Aug 22, Narendra rated it really liked it.

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. Feb 01, Nitin Pant rated it really liked it. Lists with This Book.

This book is very accurate and nicely written, with very few contem;orary all of them minora very good choice and variety of relevant exercises at different level cotemporary complexity the majority of them are actually pretty abstratabstratc minimal and only occasional hand-waving; it is also a 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.

I feel like the book was good for a few concepts, but for the most part I had to rely on the internet. Contemporaey must also point out, though, that this book contains one of the best treatments of factor groups, the Lagrange theorem, the Sylow theorems and the fundamental theorem of finite abelian groups galoian I have come across so far.

It algegra well be argued that science is nothing but the discovery of symmetries, patterns and structures that define reality at its most fundamental level.

In more general term, local symmetries play a fundamental role in physics as they form the basis for gauge theories a gauge theory is essentially a type of field theory “in which the Lagrangian is invariant under some Lie groups of local transformations”.

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.

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.
