Artin is stenographic in brevity. Many excellent texts on abstract algebra exist.

Artin is stenographic in brevity. I would recommend Artin to an absolute beginner however along with Pinter, or Saracino, or Fraleigh or Herstein's Abstract Algebra (Herstein's Topics in Algebra is for the more adventurous with a strong background in proofs). One person found this helpful.

This book is complemented by books like Lang's Algebra at a more advanced level, or Dummitt and Foote at a more elementary level. In some ways, this book is the exact opposite of Lang's: Isaacs' proofs are detailed, expanded, but tedious, and Isaacs provides few concrete examples. Lang's proofs are sparse or not present, yet Lang provides numerous examples and countless connections to other branches of mathematics.

I'm trying to learn some abstract algebra, hopefully it would help with later study of coding theory or whatever I might deal with in the future.

Problem sets of the book "Algebra" by Michael Artin. Zhu Li, Department of Computer Science and Technology, Tsinghua University. I'm trying to learn some abstract algebra, hopefully it would help with later study of coding theory or whatever I might deal with in the future. This problem set is given by the "Algebra" open course from MIT Open Courseware. There's a high chance of me never being able to finish this repo, as I'd expect this book to be a real challenge for me. Still, I'll try to persist and manage

This is by default, the best book on algebra. It's delivered so elegantly that anybody can benefit from reading it.

This book is for the honors undergraduate or introductory graduate course. This is by default, the best book on algebra. Aug 29, 2016 Saarthak Sachdeva rated it it was amazing. I really don't think there is a lot to say about this book other than the fact that it's the most definitive guide to introductory abstract algebra out there.

Michael Artin (German: ; born 28 June 1934) is an American mathematician and a professor emeritus in the Massachusetts Institute of Technology mathematics department, known for his contributions to algebraic geometry. Artin was born in Hamburg, Germany, and brought up in Indiana. His parents were Natalia Naumovna Jasny (Natascha) and Emil Artin, preeminent algebraist of the 20th century. Artin's parents left Germany in 1937, because Michael Artin's maternal grandfather was Jewish

A new copy with a bit of shelf-wear to the covers from less-than-optimal storage. Otherwise a quite nice edition with a sewn binding, thick spine (the book opens flat without problems) and bright, smooth, good-quality paper.
It is true that this is an atypical Abstract Algebra book, but that is one reason why this is an awesome book to use! We used this book in the Honors: Abstract Algebra course, and it was my first upper division Mathematics course. While it is not the easiest for a first course in Abstract Algebra, an advanced undergraduate student can certainly get a lot out of this text. Artin makes a point in the preface that his book shifts the focus of the standard Algebra course to Linear Algebra, so if you enjoy Linear Algebra, you will love the types of topics this book covers. Artin's book seems to touch on many topics that a standard Abstract Algebra course may brush over. (There are entire chapters covering Group Representation Theory, the Special Unitary Group, and Quadratic Number Fields, which are just a few examples of topics that standard Algebra textbooks may not even mention). Artin is an Algebraic Geometer, for example, his chapter on Symmetry Groups requires that you really understand what some of these structures look like in space, but IMHO, it makes these topics that much more interesting. Depending on the subfields of Algebra that you are interested in, this could not be a good book for you. But Artin's writing style provides a lot of intuition for the reader, while leaving a lot for you to discover as you work through the problems. In my opinion, you can expand on a lot on the information given in the book as you study with it. Not all of the exercises are straight forward or cut and dried, but the level of abstraction that some of these problems require would be very beneficial for someone with an interest in Algebra. I will not lie, since we used this in my first upper division math course, it was VERY challenging for me at first. Some of the exercises in the book may be very over your head when you first see them; many of them certainly were for me at first, and some of the others still are quite challenging for me. But after two semesters in an accelerated Abstract Algebra course using this text, I have become so comfortable with Algebra, and have grown so much mathematically. If you put the time and effort into learning with this book, you will have an understanding of Algebra that you will not get from many other undergraduate books.
I used this book in an advanced algebra course in which the students learned on their own with minimal guidance from the professor and discussed the assigned readings and homework once a week. I found this book difficult for self-learning. Artin aims for concision in his proofs, making the reader prove some things on his own. This is not necessarily bad, and is often very helpful for the student's learning. But it can be tough and frustrating if you need a hint, or get lost in a proof. In other words, it's perfectly good to leave steps for the reader, provided that the reader can actually fill in the gaps. For that reason, I think this book is best used as a supplement to a professor's lectures, rather than for self-learning. This book does a good job of condensing the material, and the theorems are easy to find, so it is useful when reviewing. I like the topics in the book. One of the aims of this book is to introduce the reader to the various applications of algebra. To this end Artin includes not only the typical algebra material, but also symmetry and imaginary quadratic fields. Unfortunately I found the second edition worse than the first edition in its chapters on fields. Artin took out many examples in the first edition, for reasons I don't know. The chapter on fields is full of definitions and theorems, but in my mind it doesn't elucidate the main ideas and themes effectively. I think Dummit and Foote is much better at explaining basic Galois theory. The exercises, though, are very good. Overall, this is a challenging book; when used effectively in a well-taught course (for example, see Benedict Gross's excellent free online videos on algebra), it should prove to be very rewarding.
I'm pretty happy with this book, though it's not perfect by any means. It doesn't seem suitable for self-study for a "first course" in abstract algebra, but there's one saving grace. This text is used in conjunction with the "modern algebra" offering online at MIT's open courseware site. Using the text in conjunction with the video lectures is actually quite effective, even for a first course.

The book covers a lot of ground and as a result the proofs and examples are terse and require substantial effort to follow. As the lecturer in the MIT courseware says, "Artin will challenge you." That's something of a good thing and something of a bad thing. At times the student has to fill in some rather wide gaps.

For an introduction that is much more gentle and approachable, get Pinter's book. For a second book that is much less expensive, get Judson's book. If you want all the gory details, get Dummit and Foote.

I give Artin a mild recommendation, but I go with four stars because of the book's utility with available online material.
