Topics may include, but are not limited to, Lie groups and Lie algebras, non-associative algebras, abelian groups, classical groups, algebraic number theory, representation theory, algebraic geometry, and ring theory. May be repeated for credit with permission.

As a result of successfully completing this course, students will be able to: 1) Recall all basic definitions, theorems, proofs and examples relating to the topics begin studied; 2) Perform analyses of the logic and structure of various kinds of proofs in abstract algebra; 3) Synthesize material from different subfields of abstract algebra in order to construct conceptual frameworks of increasing abstraction; 4) Apply their knowledge of the facts of abstract algebra and their comprehension of the conceptual structure of that field in the creation of arguments and examples relating to facts and concepts of groups, rings, fields and modules with which they do not have prior experience.
