Product description


“I want to note explicitly that his treatment of what universality means in this context is particularly well done … It is also noteworthy that right after discussing fiber bundles in this fifth chapter, Adhikari goes on to the massively important topic of vector bundles, stressing right off the bat that “their homotopy classifications play a very important role in mathematics and physics.” … It is rather comprehensive (at around 600 pages it would be difficult to avoid this), and it shows very good taste on the author’s part as far as what he’s chosen to do and how he’s chosen to do it…Wow! What a nice book.” (Michael Berg, MAA Reviews, February, 2017)

“This fairly thick (more than 600 pages long) book covers a lot of topics that are not generally taught to American undergraduates at all. … This book is certainly an unusual one, filled with interesting material, and there are quite a few exercises spanning a wide range of difficulty. … have considerable value as a reference for undergraduate or graduate professors, or advanced students … .” (Mark Hunacek, MAA Reviews, March, 2014)

“This book gives an accessible presentation on Basic Modern Algebra with Applications … at the undergraduate level. Each chapter has interesting exercises and additional reading. … It is an interesting book which reveals the importance of modern algebra concepts in contemporary mathematics.” (Corina Mohorianu, zbMATH, Vol. 1284, 2014)

“This is a rather unusual book. intended as a text on modern algebra for undergraduate mathematics students, the book covers a vast area including many topics which are far too advanced for an undergraduate course, yet omitting some useful and important subjects such as simple groups, cyclotomy and Galois theory… book is basic only in the sense that it starts from the beginning in many topics being covered, but the learning curve is very steep in most places.”(Peter Shiu, The Mathematical Gazette, Volume 99, Issue 544, March 2015)
