Course information

Lecturer: Nicolas Mascot

Assessment: 15% homework assignments, 85% final exam.

Because of the current situation, all the lectures will be prerecorded and available online on this page, see below.


Chapters 2 and 3 of Basic algebra I by N. Jacobson cover all the contents of this module, except for the section about field extensions.
Sergey Mozgovoy's page for this module contains additional references, as well as lecture notes.

Recorded lectures

The course contents are available as prerecorded videos and as PDF notes. You can save these files by right-clicking on the links and clicking on "Save link as".


You must submit your homework assignments before the deadline, by emailing them to the TA.

Typesetting your work in LaTeX will increase your mark by 20% (but it will still be capped at 100/100).

The solutions will be made available immediately after the deadline, so late submissions will not be accepted.
