He worked mainly in abstract algebra, but made important contributions to number theory.He was the founder of modular representation theory.…

Riemann also developed Riemannian geometry, which unifies and vastly generalizes the three types of geometry, and he defined the concept of a manifold, which generalizes the ideas of curves and surfaces.The 19th century saw the beginning of a great deal of abstract algebra.Hermann Grassmann in Germany gave a first version of vector spaces, William Rowan Hamilton in Ireland developed noncommutative algebra.…

Almost all structures in abstract algebra are special cases of groups.Rings, for example, can be viewed as abelian groups (corresponding to addition) together with a second operation (corresponding to multiplication).…

In January 1965, he became a professor of pure mathematics at the University of Mainz, where he later became a professor emeritus in 1994.He put a lot of effort into building up the Mainz group theory and abstract algebra research groups.…

He is known for his research and textbooks in group theory and abstract algebra.Fuchs was born on June 24, 1924 in Budapest, into an academic family: his father was a linguist and a member of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences.…

In abstract algebra, field extensions are the main object of study in field theory.The general idea is to start with a base field and construct in some manner a larger field that contains the base field and satisfies additional properties.…

In topology, directed sets are used to define nets, which generalize sequences and unite the various notions of limit used in analysis.Directed sets also give rise to direct limits in abstract algebra and (more generally) category theory.In addition to the definition above, there is an equivalent definition.…

His research interests include abstract algebra, number theory, group schemes, and the history of mathematics.He edited the 1966 English translation of Gauss's Disquisitiones Arithmeticae and is the author of the textbook Introduction to Affine Group Schemes.…

He wrote a number of influential research papers in abstract algebra.

In 1940 he was appointed professor in the University of Szeged and in 1967 moved to the Mathematical Institute of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences in Budapest.His mathematical work was in algebraic number theory and abstract algebra, especially group theory.He proved that every finite tournament contains an odd number of Hamiltonian paths.…

If the sides of a rectangle are measured as 1.23 meters and 4.56 meters, then multiplication gives an area for the rectangle of, Since only the first two digits after the decimal place are significant, this is usually rounded to 5.61.In abstract algebra, it can be shown that any complete ordered field is isomorphic to the real numbers.The real numbers are not, however, an algebraically closed field, because they do not include the square root of minus one.…

Noether's most important contributions to mathematics were to the development of this new field, abstract algebra.Two of the most basic objects in abstract algebra are groups and rings.A group consists of a set of elements and a single operation which combines a first and a second element and returns a third.…

RA consists entirely of equations manipulated using nothing more than uniform replacement and the substitution of equals for equals.Both rules are wholly familiar from school mathematics and from abstract algebra generally.Hence RA proofs are carried out in a manner familiar to all mathematicians, unlike the case in mathematical logic generally.…

The end of the 19th and the beginning of the 20th century saw a tremendous shift in the methodology of mathematics.Abstract algebra emerged around the start of the 20th century, under the name modern algebra.Its study was part of the drive for more intellectual rigor in mathematics.…

An operation d with these two properties is known in abstract algebra as a derivation.

He become known for his approach of using the methods of mathematical logic to attack problems in analysis and abstract algebra.He "introduced many of the fundamental notions of model theory".…

Elementary algebra is essential for any study of mathematics, science, or engineering, as well as such applications as medicine and economics.Abstract algebra is a major area in advanced mathematics, studied primarily by professional mathematicians.Much early work in algebra, as the Arabic origin of its name suggests, was done in the Near East, by such mathematicians as Omar Khayyam (1048-1131).…

Because of its generality, abstract algebra is used in many fields of mathematics and science.For instance, algebraic topology uses algebraic objects to study topologies.…

For example, the elements might be computer data words, where the first combining operation is exclusive or and the second is logical conjunction.Theorems of abstract algebra are powerful because they are general; they govern many systems.…

The specific term abstract algebra was coined at the beginning of the 20th century to distinguish this area from the other parts of algebra.The term modern algebra has also been used to denote abstract algebra.Two mathematical subject areas that study the properties of algebraic structures viewed as a whole are universal algebra and category theory.…
