The object of this book is to present in a volume of medium size the fundamental principles and processes and a few of the multitudinous applications of invariant theory, with emphasis upon both the nonsymbolical and the symbolical method.

Text for a graduate course in abstract algebra, it covers fundamental algebraic structures (groups, rings, fields, modules), and maps between them. The text is written in conventional style, the book can be used as a classroom text or as a reference.

A text on universal algebra with a strong emphasis on applications and examples from computer science. The text introduces signatures, algebras, homomorphisms, initial algebras, free algebras, and illustrates them with interactive applications.
