# BIRKHOFF AND MACLANE ALGEBRA PDF

The authors are quick to indicate applications and careful to motivate and illustrate abstractions. This is one of the primary reasons an undergraduate course ought to supplement this book. This exposition of the elements of modern algebra has been planned with great skill, and the plan has been carried through very successfully. Modern algebra also enables one to reinterpret the results of classical algebra, giving them far greater unity and generality. Throughout the study of matrices and quadratic forms the geometric point of view is emphasized.

Prove in detail that any subdomain of an ordered domain is an ordered domain. Let R be any commutative ring which contains a subset of "positive" elements satisfying the addition, multiplication, and trichotomy laws. Prove that R is an ordered domain. Well-Ordering Principle A subset S of an ordered domain such as the real number system is called well-ordered if each nonempty subset of S contains a smallest member.

In terms of this concept, one can formulate an important property of the integers, not characteristically algebraic and not shared by other number systems. This is the Well-ordering principle. The positive integers are well-ordered.

For instance, the least positive even integer is 2. To illustrate the force of this principle, we prove Theorem 3. There is no integer between 0 and 1. This is immediately clear by a glance at the natural order of the integers, but we wish to show that this fact can also be proved from our Here and subsequently exercises of greater difficulty are starred. We give an indirect proof. Thus m 2 is another integer in the set C, smaller than the supposedly minimum element m of C.

This contradiction establishes Theorem 3. Theorem 4. But m o;i. This contradiction establishes the theorem. Exercises 1. Show that for any integer a, a - 1 is the greatest integer less than a. Which of the following sets are well-ordered: a all odd positive integers, b all even negative integers, c all integers greater than -7, d all odd integers greater than ?

Prove that any subset of a well-ordered set is well-ordered. Show that any non empty set S of integers having a lower bound has a least element. Finite Induction; Laws of Exponents We have now formulated a complete list of basic properties for the integers in terms of addition, multiplication, and order.

Henceforth we assume that the integers form an ordered integral domain Z in which the positive elements are well-ordered. Every other mathematical property of the integers can be proved, by strictly logical processes, from those assumed.

In particular, we can deduce the extremely important. Let there be associated with each positive integer n a proposition P n which is either true or false. To deduce this principle from the well-ordering assumption, simply observe that the set of those positive integers k for which P k is true satisfies the hypotheses and hence the conclusion of Theorem 4. The metnod of proof by induction will now be used to prove various laws valid in any commutative ring.

FU KIAU BUNSEKI PDF Upon completing his Harvard BA in , he went to Cambridge University in England to study mathematical physics but switched to studying abstract algebra under Philip Hall. Birkhoff held no Ph. During the s, Birkhoff, along with his Harvard colleagues Marshall Stone and Saunders Mac Lane , substantially advanced American teaching and research in abstract algebra. A number of papers he wrote in the s, culminating in his monograph, Lattice Theory ; the third edition remains in print , turned lattice theory into a major branch of abstract algebra.

Throughout the study of matrices and quadratic forms the geometric point of view is emphasized. Post as a guest Name. Here care is taken to keep in the foreground the fundamental role played by algebra in Euclidean, affine, and projective geometry. It does this by discussing examples of mathematical systems or situations already partially familiar to the student, isolating important properties of these as postulates, and deducing some of the consequences of these postulates.
