In algebra there are four basic structures: groups, rings, fields and modules. In this book the theory of these basic structures is presented and the laws of composition--the basic operations of algebra--are studied. Essentially no previous knowledge is required; it is only assumed as background that the reader has learned some linear algebra over the real numbers.

A publication of Vieweg+Teubner. The AMS is exclusive distributor in North America. Vieweg+Teubner Publications are available worldwide from the AMS outside of Germany, Switzerland, Austria, and Japan.
