Finite Groups: A Second Course on Group Theory (Series in Algebra)

By Wehrfritz, B. A. F

World Scientific, 1999. Hardcover. Very Good. Unmarked text. 123p. Notation. Bibliography. Index. The notion of a group appears widely in mathematics and even further afield in physics and chemistry, and the fundamental idea should be known to all mathematicians. In this textbook a purely algebraic approach is taken and the choice of material is based upon the notion of conjugacy. The aim is not only to cover basic material, but also to present group theory as a living, vibrant and growing discipline, by including references and discussion of some work up to the present day.
