Praise for the First Edition

"Stahl offers the solvability of equations from the historical point of view...one of the best books available to support a one-semester introduction to abstract algebra."
?CHOICE

Introductory Modern Algebra: A Historical Approach, Second Edition presents the evolution of algebra and provides readers with the opportunity to view modern algebra as a consistent movement from concrete problems to abstract principles. With a few pertinent excerpts from the writings of some of the greatest mathematicians, the Second Edition uniquely facilitates the understanding of pivotal algebraic ideas.

The author provides a clear, precise, and accessible introduction to modern algebra and also helps to develop a more immediate and well-grounded understanding of how equations lead to permutation groups and what those groups can inform us about such diverse items as multivariate functions and the 15-puzzle. Featuring new sections on topics such as group homomorphisms, the RSA algorithm, complex conjugation, the factorization of real polynomials, and the fundamental theorem of algebra, the Second Edition also includes:

  • An in-depth explanation of the principles and practices of modern algebra in terms of the historical development from the Renaissance solution of the cubic equation to Dedekind's ideals
  • Historical discussions integrated with the development of modern and abstract algebra in addition to many new explicit statements of theorems, definitions, and terminology
  • A new appendix on logic and proofs, sets, functions, and equivalence relations
  • Over 1,000 new examples and multi-level exercises at the end of each section and chapter as well as updated chapter summaries

Introductory Modern Algebra: A Historical Approach, Second Edition is an excellent textbook for upper-undergraduate courses in modern and abstract algebra.

Marc Kirschenbaum is one of the world’s leading origami artists, and in Creative Origami Kit, he shares an array of impressive origami projects that can be folded in just a few minutes. Kirschenbaum’s models look like complex constructions that would normally stump a beginner, but eight of these fifteen surprisingly simple creations follow the innovative “Pureland” origami system. Pioneered by English artist John Smith, Pureland origami uses only simple mountain and valley folds in order to make paper folding easier for beginners and impaired folders.

Kirschenbaum draws much of his inspiration from the natural world and the result is an exciting collection of new models, such as:

  • Homage to Picasso
  • Pureland Platypus
  • Pureland Ship in a Bottle
  • Pureland Eagle
  • The Doctor's Dog
Creative Origami Kit includes a 64-page book with detailed instructions for the fifteen new designs Kirschenbaum created specifically for this kit, as well as an instructional DVD and a set of seventy-two colorful origami sheets. Beginners and intermediate origami enthusiasts alike will adore every project in this master-folder’s exciting new kit.
