An Introduction to Groups, Rings, and Fields
Bruce Cooperstein

This is a digital textbook for a first course (sequence of courses) in Abstract Algebra covering the essentials of groups, rings and fields. The book is not an electronic version of a traditional print textbook but rather makes use of the digital environment to enhance student learning. One way this is achieved is by spiraling through the material, periodically returning to previous concepts to reinforce students' understanding.

Elementary Linear Algebra
Bruce Cooperstein

This is an e-textbook for a first course in linear algebra. The topics covered include: Linear Systems, The Vector Space R^n, Matrix Algebra, Determinants, Abstract Vector Spaces, Linear Transformations, Eigenvalues and Eigenvectors, and Orthogonality in R^n. It introduces linear transformations in R^n quite early and uses them to motivate the addition and multiplication of matrices.

A Term of Commutative Algebra
Allen Altman – Simons Rock
Steven Kleiman – Massachusetts Institute of Technology

There is no shortage of books on Commutative Algebra, but the present book is different. Most books are monographs, with extensive coverage. There is one notable exception: Atiyah and Macdonald’s 1969 classic. It is a clear, concise, and efficient textbook, aimed at beginners, with a good selection of topics. So it has remained popular. However, its age and flaws do show. So there is need for an updated and improved version, which the present book aims to be.
