Student Solutions Manual for Gallian's Contemporary Abstract Algebra
Textbooks in Mathematics
|Verlag:||Chapman and Hall/CRC|
Whereas many partial solutions and sketches for the odd-numbered exercises appear in the book, the Student Solutions Manual, written by the author, has comprehensive solutions for all odd-numbered exercises and largea number of even-numbered exercises. This Manual also offers many alternative solutions to those appearing in the text. These will provide the student with a better understanding of the material.This is the only available student solutions manual prepared by the author of Contemporary Abstract Algebra, Tenth Edition and is designed to supplement that text.Table of ContentsIntegers and Equivalence Relations0.

In addition to receiving numerous national awards for his teaching and exposition, he has served terms as the Second Vice President, and the President of the MAA. He has served on 40 national committees, chairing ten of them. He has published over 100 articles and authored six books. Numerous articles about his work have appeared in the national news outlets, including thea New York Times, the Washington Post, the Boston Globe, and Newsweek, among many others.
