MAT 322 - Advanced Topics in Algebra

4 credits (Spring)
Algebraists study sets with operations, such as matrices under addition and multiplication. Algebraic structures are central in modern mathematics, arising in areas like number theory and combinatorics, topology and geometry, and also finding applications in fields like cryptography and coding theory - even data analysis and music theory.  This course will build on the foundations of abstract algebra, exploring an advanced topic in this area.  The course will regularly provide an opportunity to pursue research. May be repeated for credit when content changes. For current course content please see the variable topic course listing below or search the online live schedule of courses.

Prerequisite: MAT 321 .
