Algebra: A Computational Introduction
John Scherk, 2000, CRC Press, 319 pp.,
An algebra text for readers with a solid background in linear algebra.
Each chapter builds on previous ones, from permutation groups, then linear
groups, and finally abstract groups. Mathematica is integrated
throughout the book, with numerous exercises and downloads available to
provide references for complex problems encountered in the field.
