Office hours:

TBC.

Classes:

Tuesdays and Thursdays 12:30–13:45 in New Cabell Hall 058.

Text:

Notes will be available on Collab, and will mostly follow those of Mikhail Ershov available here. It will not be necessary to supplement these notes with a textbook, but if you wish to do so, the recommended texts are A book of Abstract Algebra, Charles Pinter, and Elements of Modern Algebra, Linda Gilbert.

Homework:

Homework assignments will be posted on the class home page in UVACollab (under ‘Resources’) every Thursday, starting from August 29th. The assignment will be due at the start of the lecture the following Thursday (e.g. the first assignment is due at the start of the lecture on Thursday September 5th). There will be no makeup homework. Assignments should be cleanly and legibly written, and stapled together with your name on the front. The lowest 2 scores among all the assignments for each student will be dropped.
