Prerequisite: MAA101
Reduction of endomorphisms (MAA104)
introduces students to more conceptual
algebraic subjects. More precisely,
students explore the fundamental structures
of algebra including groups, rings,
and fields. Topics covered in this course
are designed to prepare students for later
questions related to symmetry (including
those arising in physics) and number
theory. This course also covers the study
of polynomials, including their application,
to further develop techniques acquired
from linear algebra.
