There are two books related to Abstract Algebra. I hope the books can help you to understand Abstract Algebra.

**Book Description: **

This is a high level introduction to abstract algebra which is aimed at readers whose interests lie in mathematics and in the information and physical sciences. In addition to introducing the main concepts of modern algebra, the book contains numerous applications, which are intended to illustrate the concepts and to convince the reader of the utility and relevance of algebra today. In particular applications to Polya coloring theory, latin squares, Steiner systems and error correcting codes are described. Another feature of the book is that group theory and ring theory are carried further than is often done at this level. There is ample material here for a two semester course in abstract algebra.

The importance of proof is stressed and rigorous proofs of almost all results are given. But care has been taken to lead the reader through the proofs by gentle stages. There are nearly 400 problems, of varying degrees of difficulty, to test the reader’s skill and progress. The book should be suitable for students in the third or fourth year of study at a North American university or in the second or third year at a university in Europe.

**Book Description: **

The mathematical concepts of abstract algebra may indeed be considered abstract, but its utility is quite concrete and continues to grow in importance. Unfortunately, the practical application of abstract algebra typically involves extensive and cumbersome calculations-often frustrating even the most dedicated attempts to appreciate and employ its intricacies. Now, however, sophisticated mathematical software packages help obviate the need for heavy number-crunching and make fields dependent on the algebra more interesting-and more accessible.Applications of Abstract Algebra with Maple opens the door to cryptography, coding, Polya counting theory, and the many other areas dependent on abstract algebra. The authors have carefully integrated Maple V throughout the text, enabling readers to see realistic examples of the topics discussed without struggling with the computations. But the book stands well on its own if the reader does not have access to the software.The text includes a first-chapter review of the mathematics required-groups, rings, and finite fields-and a Maple tutorial in the appendix along with detailed treatments of coding, cryptography, and Polya theory applications.Applications of Abstract Algebra with Maple packs a double punch for those interested in beginning-or advancing-careers related to the applications of abstract algebra. It not only provides an in-depth introduction to the fascinating, real-world problems to which the algebra applies, it offers readers the opportunity to gain experience in using one of the leading and most respected mathematical software packages available
