From the preface to the supplement:
The text grew out of the first-year graduate course that I have taught at Northern Illinois University. In keeping with the noncommutative focus of the text, I included a chapter on group representations in place of the chapter on commutative rings that is in our course syllabus. Since a course at that level should lay some foundation for later work in commutative algebra, I felt that I should make my class notes available as a supplement to the text.
At this point, the supplement is approximately 30 pages long and includes the following sections.
Chapter 5: Commutative rings
The supplementary lecture notes are available to interested readers, in postscript or .pdf (Acrobat Reader) format.
