Introduction To Rings And Modules
This collection underscores the contemporary relevance of Gilman's analysis of American society, the enduring value of her literary and theoretical work, but also raises questions about the limitations embodied and revealed in her analyses. These essays offer a range of assessments regarding Gilman's mixed legacy-her vision for a truly humane, egalitarian world alongside her persistent presentation of class, ethnic, and racial stereotypes.
This book, first published in 2000, is a concise introduction to ring theory, module theory and number theory, ideal for a first year graduate student, as well as an excellent reference for working mathematicians in other areas. Starting from definitions, the book introduces fundamental constructions of rings and modules, as direct sums or products, and by exact sequences.
