Course Description and Syllabus:

Math 200b is the second quarter of the three-part graduate algebra sequence. In this quarter, we will cover module theory and field theory as in Chapters 10-14 of Dummit and Foote's text, Abstract Algebra. Math 200c in the spring will cover the more advanced theory of commutative rings using the text by Atiyah and Macdonald. Math 200a is a prerequisite for Math 200b; please come talk to me if you think you are prepared to take Math 200b without first taking Math 200a. The detailed syllabus for the course can be found at the following link. It is important that all students read it since the full course policies may not be gone over in class. Please ask if you have any questions about these policies.
