Welcome to Math 200b! Please read the syllabus at right.

Basic course description

Math 200b is the second quarter of UCSD's three-quarter graduate-level abstract algebra course. Math 200a is a prerequisite. Please come talk to me if you believe this is the right course for you although you have not taken Math 200a. The main aim of the course is to give PhD and masters students in mathematics sufficient background for their further studies, and to prepare these students for the qualifying exam in algebra given in May 2020 and again in September 2020. The text will be Dummit and Foote, "Abstract Algebra", 3rd edition.
