Anthony W. Knapp, Advanced Algebra, Digital Second Edition (East Setauket, NY: Anthony W. Knapp, 2016)


Advanced Algebra and its companion volume Basic Algebra systematically develop concepts and tools in algebra that are vital to every mathematician, whether pure or applied, aspiring or established. The two books together aim to give the reader a global view of algebra, its use, and its role in mathematics as a whole. The idea is to explain what the young mathematician needs to know about algebra in order to communicate well with colleagues in all branches of mathematics. The books are written as textbooks, and their primary audience is students who are learning the material for the first time and who are planning a career in which they will use advanced mathematics professionally.
