Driven primarily through the lens of linear algebra, this unit provides an abstract development of standard algebraic structures: groups, rings, fields, and vector spaces. Topics include: linear transformations, non-singularity and invertibility; isomorphism and homomorphism theorems; the algebra of linear transformations; polynomial ideals and the division algorithm; determinants and permutations; invariant subspaces, projection operators, minimal polynomials and the primary decomposition theorem.
