Primer of Abstract Algebra by Robert B. Ash
Book DescriptionThe purpose of this book is to prepare the reader for coping with abstract mathematics. The intended audience is both students taking a first course in abstract algebra who feel the need to strengthen their background, and those from a more applied background who need some experience in dealing with abstract ideas. Learning any area of abstract mathematics requires not only ability to write formally but also to think intuitively about what is going on and to describe that process clearly and cogently in ordinary English. Ash tries to aid intuition by keeping proofs short and as informal as possible, and using concrete examples as illustration. Thus it is an ideal textbook for an audience with limited experience in formalism and abstraction. A number of expository innovations are included, for example, an informal development of set theory which teaches students all the basic results for algebra in one chapter.

Books By Author Robert B. Ash
Statistical Inference a Concise Course, Paperback (July 2011)
This book offers a brief course in statistical inference that requires only a basic familiarity with probability and matrix and linear algebra. Ninety problems with solutions make it an ideal choice for self-study. 2011 edition.
Course in Algebraic Number Theory, Paperback (August 2010)
Graduate-level course covers the general theory of factorization of ideals in Dedekind domains, the use of Kummer's theorem, proofs of the Dirichlet unit theorem, and Minkowski bounds on element and ideal norms. 2003 edition.
Real Variables with Basic Metric Space Topology, Paperback (January 2009)
Designed for a first course in real variables, this text encourages intuitive thinking and features detailed solutions to problems. Topics include complex variables, measure theory, differential equations, functional analysis, probability. 1993 edition.
Basic Probability Theory, Paperback (August 2008)» View all books by Robert B. Ash
This text emphasizes the probabilistic way of thinking, rather than by measuring theoretic concepts. Geared toward advanced undergraduates and graduate students, it features solutions to some of the problems. 1970 edition.
