**List Of Abstract Algebra Topics**

**Abstract algebra** is the subject area of mathematics that studies algebraic structures, such as groups, rings, fields, modules, vector spaces, and algebras. The phrase **abstract algebra** was coined at the turn of the 20th century to distinguish this area from what was normally referred to as **algebra**, the study of the rules for manipulating formulae and algebraic expressions involving unknowns and real or complex numbers, often now called *elementary algebra*. The distinction is rarely made in more recent writings.

### Famous quotes containing the words list of, algebra, list and/or abstract:

“Love’s boat has been shattered against the life of everyday. You and I are quits, and it’s useless to draw up a *list of* mutual hurts, sorrows, and pains.”

—Vladimir Mayakovsky (1893–1930)

“Poetry has become the higher *algebra* of metaphors.”

—José Ortega Y Gasset (1883–1955)

“We saw the machinery where murderers are now executed. Seven have been executed. The plan is better than the old one. It is quietly done. Only a few, at the most about thirty or forty, can witness [an execution]. It excites nobody outside of the *list* permitted to attend. I think the time for capital punishment has passed. I would abolish it. But while it lasts this is the best mode.”

—Rutherford Birchard Hayes (1822–1893)

“If we take in our hand any volume; of divinity or school metaphysics, for instance; let us ask, Does it contain any *abstract* reasoning concerning quantity or number? No. Does it contain any experimental reasoning, concerning matter of fact and existence? No. Commit it then to flames: for it can contain nothing but sophistry and illusion.”

—David Hume (1711–1776)
