This site contains many of the definitions and theorems from the area of mathematics generally called abstract algebra. It is intended for undergraduate students taking an abstract algebra class at the junior/senior level, as well as for students taking their first graduate algebra course. It is based on the books Abstract Algebra, by John A. Beachy and William D. Blair, and Abstract Algebra II, by John A. Beachy.

The site is organized by chapter. The page containing the Table of Contents also contains an index of definitions and theorems, which can be searched for detailed references on subject area pages.

TABLE OF CONTENTS (Frames version)

Interested students may also wish to refer to closely related sites that include many solved problems:

A Study Guide for Beginners for Abstract Algebra, 3nd edition, in .pdf format.
Review of Groups and Galois Theory for Abstract Algebra, 3nd edition, in .pdf format.
OnLine Study Guide for Abstract Algebra, 2nd edition.

The online problems in A Study Guide for Beginners have been published in a book that contains the statements of definitions and theorems from Abstract Algebra, 3rd edition, so it can be used as a "stand-alone" set of solved problems that can be used with any text.

Abstract Algebra: Study Guide, available though online booksellers.
