Note:

Introduction

This unit provides an abstract development of two standard algebraic structures: rings and vector spaces. Topics covered include homomorphisms; kernels, ideals, and cosets; factor rings; subspaces; linear maps; isomorphism; factor spaces; and the algebra of linear maps. Students will obtain a clear understanding of the power of the abstract approach. Particular highlights include the ring homomorphism theorem, the algebraic definition of dimension and associated conservation theorem, and the origin of matrix algebra.
