Subject: This is the second part of an introductory graduate level course on the basic structures and methods of algebra. We plan to cover the following topics:

Grades: Grades will be based on (approximately) weekly homework assignments (approximately 9-10 assignments), a take-home mid-term and an in-class final (qualifying) exam. The due date for the mid-term exam is Friday, March 24 and the date final/qualifying exam is Friday, May 5, at 1:00 PM.

The final exam is the same as the qualifying exam. It is three-hour long and covers the material of the whole year. If you are not enrolled in the graduate program, you have the option of taking only a final. This would be a two-hour exam about topics covered during this semester. Let me know in advance if you wish to take only the two-hour final.

Texts: Any of the following texts should serve for the course. Feel free to use your favorite.

Assignments will be posted below.
