|Spring Semester 2020
|every semester recurring course
|Language of instruction
|Enrolment ONLY for MSc students with a decree declaring this course unit as an additional admission requirement.
Any other students (e.g. incoming exchange students, doctoral students) CANNOT enrol for this course unit.
|Algebra I and II
Self-study course. No presence required.
|Introduction and development of some basic algebraic structures - groups, rings, fields including Galois theory, representations of finite groups, algebras.
The precise content changes with the examiner. Candidates must therefore contact the examiner in person before studying the material.

Subgroups, Quotient groups and Homomorphisms,
Group actions and applications
Basic notions and examples of rings;
ideals, and quotient rings, rings of fractions
Euclidean domains, Principal ideal domains, Unique factorization
Basic notions and examples of fields;
Field extensions, Algebraic extensions, Classical straight edge and compass constructions
Fundamentals of Galois theory
