In the biological sciences, I was told my personal knowledge of the biological sciences is pretty rudimentary that symmetry and symmetry breaking play a prominent role in developmental biology, from bilaterians to radially symmetric organisms see for example https: Goodreads helps you keep track of books you want to read. Lists with This Book. There is for example a natural connection between particle physics and representation theory of abstract algebra, linking the properties of elementary particles to the structure of Lie Groups and Lie Algebras in particular, the different quantum states of any given elementary particle corresponds to an irreducible representation of the Poincare’ group.

In fact, structure and symmetry are a fundamental aspect of physical reality.
Joseph Gallian is a well-known active researcher and award-winning teacher. I also greatly appreciated the full list of notational conventions at the beginning of the book, and the list of suggested readings at the end of each chapter.
James Nance rated it liked it Oct 09, In general, abstract algebra and group theory in particular provides a framework for constructing analogies or gallixn from abstractions, and for the manipulation of those abstractions to design new systems, make predictions and posit new hypotheses.

Contemporary Abstract Algebra by Joseph A. Gallian
Nobody explains abstract algebra better then Contemporxry Gallian. This is an awesome book. Oct 31, Daniel rated it really liked it. Groups and rings are extremely powerful concepts, but to read this book you would think they are just a game where you write down some axioms and see what random statements you can prove.
None of this is unique to this book. Want to Read Currently Reading Read. An acquired taste, just like black coffee with no sugar.
Hardcoverpages. Moreover, group theory has many applications in cryptography, robotics and computer vision, just as another example of concrete application of abstract algebra concepts.

I would rather the author attract readers’ interest by showing them the power of the algebraic structures discussed. I did find useful information that helped me in the class, but it was very limited.

Contemporary Abstract Algebra
Not algebrs perfect book by any means, and possibly too basic in some areas, but a solid good textbook recommended to anybody interested in a treatment of this fascinating subject delivered, with a good pedagogical approach, at senior undergraduate level.
Competent explanations of the basics algebea groups, rings, and fields. The best intro to abstract algebra out there. There are no discussion topics on this book yet. Sep 06, WarpDrive rated it really liked it Shelves: Going beyond the realm of fundamental physics, molecular symmetry is a fundamental concept in chemistry, as it can predict or explain many of a molecule’s chemical avstract such as its dipole moment.

Dec 30, Will rated it it was ok. Just a moment while we sign you in to your Goodreads account. Thanks for telling us about the problem. It seems students are simply not expected to see algebra put to any use until grad school, if at all. My favorite textbook of all time! In more general term, local symmetries play a fundamental role in physics as they form the basis for gauge theories a gauge theory is essentially a type of field theory “in which the Lagrangian is invariant under some Lie groups of local transformations”.
