This course goes deeper into the study of Abstract Algebra. Topics vary from group theory (homomorphisms and isomorphisms, Lagrange's Theorem, normality, quotients, fundamental isomorphism theorems, symmetric groups, direct products, classification of finite abelian groups) to basic commutative algebra (integral domains, Euclidean domains, principal ideal domains, unique factorization domains, factorization of quadratic integers, and the field of fractions of an integral domain) to Galois theory. Additional topics as time and interest permits.
