Group Theory by W. R. Scott Here is a clear, well-organized coverage of the most standard theorems, including isomorphism theorems, transformations and subgroups, direct sums, abelian groups, and more. This undergraduate-level text features more than 500 exercises.
The Theory of Groups by Hans J. Zassenhaus Well-written graduate-level text acquaints reader with group-theoretic methods and demonstrates their usefulness in mathematics. Axioms, the calculus of complexes, homomorphic mapping, p-group theory, more. Many proofs shorter and more transparent than older ones.
The Algebraic Structure of Group Rings by Donald S. Passman "Highly recommended" (Bulletin of the London Mathematical Society) and "encyclopedic and lucid" (Bulletin of the American Mathematical Society), this book offers a comprehensive, self-contained treatment of group rings. 1985 edition.
Introduction to Proof in Abstract Mathematics by Andrew Wohlgemuth This undergraduate text teaches students what constitutes an acceptable proof, and it develops their ability to do proofs of routine problems as well as those requiring creative insights. 1990 edition.
Applications of Group Theory in Quantum Mechanics by M. I. Petrashen, J. L. Trifonov This advanced text explores the theory of groups and their matrix representations. The main focus rests upon point and space groups, with applications to electronic and vibrational states. 1969 edition.
The most effective way to study any branch of mathematics is to tackle its problems. This wide-ranging anthology offers a straightforward approach, with 431 challenging problems in all phases of group theory, from elementary to the most advanced. The problems are arranged in eleven chapters: subgroups, permutation groups, automorphisms and finitely generated Abelian groups, normal series, commutators and derived series, solvable and nilpotent groups, the group ring and monomial representations, Frattini subgroup, factorization, linear groups, and representations and characters. Each chapter features a preface of pertinent definitions and theorems, and full solutions appear in a separate section. Most of these problems are derived from research papers published since 1950 (a listing of 102 references is supplied). This compilation makes them readily accessible as a supplement to courses in group theory. The presentation places equal emphasis on techniques and results, encouraging the development of both skill and comprehension.
