Course objectives
At the end of this course, students should be able to:
understand rudiments of group theory, ring theory and lattice theory;
understand rudiments of universal algebra;
explain basic notions and relations among them.
Syllabus
  • Rings and polynomials (ideals, factorrings, fields, skewfields, extensions, finite fields, symmetric polynomials).
  • Lattices (semilattices and lattices - two approaches, modular and distributive lattices, Boolean algebras, representation of finite distributive lattices and Boolean algebras).
  • Universal algebra (subalgebras, homomorphisms, congruences and factoralgebras, products, terms, varieties, free algebras, Birkhoff's theorem).
