CONTEMPORARY ABSTRACT ALGEBRA, NINTH EDITION is primarily intended for an abstract algebra course whose main purpose is to enable students to do computations and write proofs. Gallian's text stresses the importance of obtaining a solid introduction to the traditional topics of abstract algebra, while at the same time presenting it as a contemporary and very much an active subject which is currently being used by working physicists, chemists, and computer scientists.
