A Course in Group Theory by John F. Humphreys

By John F. Humphreys

This e-book is a transparent and self-contained advent to the idea of teams. it really is written with the purpose of stimulating and inspiring undergraduates and primary yr postgraduates to determine extra concerning the topic. All subject matters more likely to be encountered in undergraduate classes are lined. quite a few labored examples and routines are incorporated. The workouts have approximately all been attempted and demonstrated on scholars, and whole ideas are given. every one bankruptcy ends with a precis of the cloth lined and notes at the historical past and improvement of workforce conception. the topics of the publication are quite a few category difficulties in (finite) team idea. Introductory chapters clarify the innovations of crew, subgroup and basic subgroup, and quotient workforce. The Homomorphism and Isomorphism Theorems are then mentioned, and, after an advent to G-sets, the Sylow Theorems are proved. next chapters care for finite abelian teams, the Jordan-Holder Theorem, soluble teams, p-groups, and workforce extensions. ultimately there's a dialogue of the finite basic teams and their class, which was once accomplished within the Eighties after 100 years of attempt.

Finite group theory

Over the past 30 years the idea of finite teams has constructed dramatically. Our knowing of finite easy teams has been superior by way of their type. many questions about arbitrary teams will be decreased to comparable questions on easy teams and purposes of the speculation are commencing to seem in different branches of arithmetic.
