MATH 226 - Modern Algebra II

Type of Course: Lecture
In the early 1800s, Abel showed that a general equation of degree at least five cannot be solved by extracting roots. Today, group theory, developed by Galois to determine which equations are solvable, is used throughout mathematics and in much of physics and chemistry. This course focuses on groups and Galois theory. Other possible topics include canonical forms of matrices and modules.

Prerequisites: MATH 225 .

Instructor: Mr. Joyce, Mr. Morris

When Offered: Offered every other year

Faculty: David Joyce, Ph.D. Professor of Mathematics, Lawrence Morris, Ph.D. Professor of Mathematics and Computer Science
