Course objectives
After this course a student will be able to deal with the basic algebraic structures like monoids and groups and will understand calculating roots and irreducibility of polynomials. He/she will cope with an application in language theory.
  • Groups (permutation groups, Cayley's theorems, subgroups and normal subgroups, quotient groups, homomorphisms, products, classification of cyclic groups).
  • Polynomials over C, R, Q (multiplicity of zeros and the derivative, irreducible polynomials, Euklid's algorithm).
  • Rings (ideals, factor rings, fields, skewfields).

Teaching methods
Once a week a standard lecture with a stress on motivation and examples.
Assessment methods
A written exam has tree parts: a completion of a text concerning (on advance) given theoretical issues, a calculation of a transformation monoid, and 3 tests problems where the students show the understanding the basics. It takes two hours. One half of possible points is needed for a success.
