Not exactly a light read. Very heavy book, good for hitting people with.
I'm reading this book in conjunction with an online lecture series on abstract algebra by Benedict Gross, a Harvard professor who was once the dean of Harvard undergraduate programme and then the dean of Harvard College. So I feel in safe hands, especially when this book looks as intimidating as it really is. Someone here mentioned that it was 'good for hitting people with' and I agree wholeheartedly, this is a real brick, at 900 pages, and a very unusual one at that, as bricks to my knowledge a [...]
The very reason that I don't like it is my lack of understanding. Of course Lange did a great job, but not for this low level of sophistication!
Excellent! Great exercises.
This is the kind of book which people love who already know everything that's in it (and then they pretend this is the way they would have liked to learn it).Lang's "Algebra" is a sterilised accumulation of algebraic facts, and it makes a good algebra encyclopaedia.To its credit, the book does cover a lot of material which one would otherwise have to look for in many different books, and I assume this is the main reason for its fame.Unfortunately, the exposition follows the Bourbaki ideology, so [...]
I commend the reader who is able to get past the first chapter. While the book certainly contains a lot of information, it is presented in the most concise possible way (which sometimes can be an advantage, but often makes the proofs impossible to comprehend). The homework problems are challenging and time consuming. Most of them involve extending the (more basic) concepts presented in the text to deeper levels of abstraction. Therefore, I would recommend using this book for its exercises while [...]
i believe lang's purpose in writing this book was to emphasize his superiority to mathematics graduate students. mission accomplished. read it if you already know everything in it, or if you enjoy hieroglyphics.
as far as Lang goes, it's not bad, that is to say, this book would be horrible to learn from but as a reference, it's pretty decent.
good stuff, i didn't read it like a novel though, i just used as a reference book, i enjoyed it
