# Algebra 2: Linear Algebra, Galois Theory, Representation by Ramji Lal

By Ramji Lal

This is the second one in a sequence of 3 volumes facing very important issues in algebra. quantity 2 is an advent to linear algebra (including linear algebra over rings), Galois idea, illustration conception, and the idea of crew extensions. The part on linear algebra (chapters 1–5) doesn't require any heritage fabric from Algebra 1, except an realizing of set thought. Linear algebra is the main appropriate department of arithmetic, and it really is crucial for college kids of technology and engineering As such, the textual content can be utilized for one-semester classes for those students. The closing a part of the quantity discusses Jordan and rational kinds, basic linear algebra (linear algebra over rings), Galois thought, illustration thought (linear algebra over team algebras), and the speculation of extension of teams stick to linear algebra, and is acceptable as a textual content for the second one and 3rd yr scholars focusing on mathematics.
