Group theory

I will be lecturing on group theory next semester, for the first time in a long while.

This is a Masters level course, so has to assume quite a bit of background knowledge from earlier courses. I expect that many of the students taking the course will either have forgotten this material, or never learned it in the first place.

So I have produced a set of revision notes, and put them on the web, at The course is about finite groups, and I have compressed the background into 30 pages (largely by leaving out proofs). This is more than I want to post here, so please use the link instead.

Feel free to use the notes yourself, and please send me corrections!

  2. Thanks. There are certainly not as many stained-glass windows in the notes as I would have liked (though you did pick one out, I see). Probably a 30-page guide to Chartres cathedral would not draw attention to all the stained-glass windows either!
