MATH 3370 Applications of Abstract Algebra (Fall: 1 )
This course is open to all majors who have had MATH3310. The immediate goal is to present some topics that extend and apply the subject matter of 3310. At the same time students may gain a deeper understanding of groups and rings that they only imperfectly understood the first time around. A secondary goal is for students to appreciate that the abstract concepts learned in 310 can have relevance to the outside world; for example, cryptography as applied to modern communications, or concepts from algebra and number theory that may be taught in the high school classroom.
