Course description and aims

The algebraic structure plays an important role in mathematical and computing sciences. The objectives of this course are to provide the fundamentals of algebra, particularly on congruence, group, subgroup, homomorphism, quotient group, homomorphism theorem, ring, ideal, finite fields and so on, and also for the students to built backgrounds to apply algebra in mathematical and computing sciences.

Student learning outcomes

The students are expected to understand the fundamentals of mathematical methods to handle algebraic structures appeared in mathematical and computing sciences and also to be able to apply them to practical problems.

Keywords

Out-of-Class Study Time (Preparation and Review)

To enhance effective learning, students are encouraged to spend a certain length of time outside of class on preparation and review (including for assignments), as specified by the Tokyo Institute of Technology Rules on Undergraduate Learning (東京工業大学学修規程) and the Tokyo Institute of Technology Rules on Graduate Learning (東京工業大学大学院学修規程), for each class.
They should do so by referring to textbooks and other course material.

Textbook(s)
