Numbers, Groups and Codes by J. F. Humphreys

Book Description

This textbook is an introduction to algebra via examples. The book moves from properties of integers, through other examples, to the beginnings of group theory. Applications to public key codes and to error correcting codes are emphasised. These applications, together with sections on logic and finite state machines, make the text suitable for students of computer science as well as mathematics students. Attention is paid to historical development of the mathematical ideas. This second edition contains new material on mathematical reasoning skills and a new chapter on polynomials has been added. The book was developed from first-level courses taught in the UK and USA. These courses proved successful in developing not only a theoretical understanding but also algorithmic skills. This book can be used at a wide range of levels: it is suitable for first- or second-level university students, and could be used as enrichment material for upper-level school students.

Course in Group Theory by J. F. Humphreys Course in Group Theory, Paperback (April 1996)

This introduction to the theory of groups covers all topics likely to be encountered in undergraduate courses. The book takes as its theme the various fundamental classification theorems in finite group theory, and the text is further explained in numerous examples and exercises, and summaries at the end of each chapter.

Projective Representations of the Symmetric Groups by J. F. Humphreys Projective Representations of the Symmetric Groups, Hardback (November 1992)

The study of the symmetric groups forms one of the basic building blocks of modern group theory. This book presents information currently known on the projective representations of the symmetric and alternating groups. Special emphasis is placed on the theory of Q-functions and skew Q-functions.
