With the advent of computers that can handle symbolic
manipulations, abstract algebra can now be applied. In this book
David Joyner, Richard Kreminski, and Joann Turisco introduce a
wide range of abstract algebra with relevant and interesting
applications, from error-correcting codes to cryptography to the
group theory of Rubik's cube. They cover basic topics such as the
Euclidean algorithm, encryption, and permutations. Hamming codes... more...
