9780883857571: Visual Group Theory (MAA Classroom Resource Materials) (MAA Problem Book Series)

Group theory is the branch of mathematics that studies symmetry, found in crystals, art, architecture, music and many other contexts. But its beauty is lost on students when it is taught in a technical style that is difficult to understand. Visual Group Theory assumes only a high school mathematics background and covers a typical undergraduate course in group theory from a thoroughly visual perspective.

The more than 300 illustrations in Visual Group Theory bring groups, subgroups, homomorphisms, products, and quotients into clear view. Every topic and theorem is accompanied with a visual demonstration of its meaning and import, from the basics of groups and subgroups through advanced structural concepts such as semidirect products and Sylow theory.

Book Description:

This text approaches the learning of group theory visually. It allows the student to see groups, experiment with groups and understand their significance. It is ideal as a supplement for a first course in group theory or alternatively as recreational reading.

About the Author:

Nathan Carter earned his Ph.D. in mathematics at Indiana University in July 2004. He received the University of Scranton Excellence in Mathematics Award in 1999, an Indiana University Rothrock Teaching Award in 2003, and a Bentley College Innovation in Teaching Award in 2007. Visual Group Theory is his first book, based on lessons learned while writing the software Group Explorer. Like several of his research projects, it puts computers to work to improve mathematical understanding and education.
