The principal aim of the course is to introduce the students to the main tools and methods of the theory of modules and rings. At the end of the course we expect the student to have understood the definitions and basic theorems which are discussed in the course, to have understood how they are applied in discrete examples, to be able to apply the material in order to extract new elementary conclusions, and finally to perform some (no so obvious) calculations.
The contact of the undergraduate student with the ideas and concepts of the theory of modules and rings, (a) promotes the creative, analytical and deductive thinking and the ability to work independently, (b) improves his critical thinking and his ability to apply abstract knowledge in various field.
- Elementary Ring Theory.
- Euclidean Domains, Principal Ideal Domains and Unique Factorization Domains.
- Module Theory.
- Modules over polynomial rings.
- Finitely generated and free modules.
- Modules over Principal Ideal Domains.
- Decomposition Theorems.
- Applications to Linear Algebra and Abelian groups.
