A foundational textbook on abstract algebra with emphasis on linear algebra.

Linear Algebra by Jim Hefferon

Elementary Linear Algebra by Keith Matthews

Linear Algebra, Infinite dimensions and Maple by James Herod

Elementary Number Theory by William Stein

**Abstract Algebra: The Basic Graduate Year, A Course in Algebraic Number Theory, and, A Course in Commutative Algebra** are three e-books by Robert Ash and are available here on his website.

A Course in Universal Algebra by Stanley Burris & H. P. Sankappanvar

**Linear Algebra** by Leif Mejlbro

Leif has published many of his books, sixty-six to be precise, freely on Bookboon.com . You can see what he offers freely at http://bookboon.com/en/search?q=author%3A%22Leif%20Mejlbro%22 . In his ** Linear Algebra **book-series he offers great details and excellent write up. He has aimed this series to be a practical guide for students in Physics and the technical sciences. For that reason the emphasis has been laid on worked examples, while the mathematical theory is only briefly sketched without proofs. There are total three books on Linear Algebra, all hosted at

*Bookboon.com*all of which can be downloaded freely.

- Linear algebra c-1 – Linear equations, matrices and determinants
- Linear algebra c-2 – Geometrical Vectors, Vector Spaces and Linear Maps
- Linear algebra c-3 – The Eigenvalue Problem and Euclideam* Vector Space

Four other books on

Linear Algebraby Kenneth Kuttler are also considerable.

Group theory for Maths, Physics and Chemistry by Arjeh Cohen, Rosane Ushirobira, Jan Draisma

Symmetry plays an important role in chemistry and physics, both at the macroscopic and the microscopic level. Group theory is an abstract setting capturing the symmetry in a very efficient manner, which helps to make computations more efficient. We focus on abstract group theory, deal with representations of groups by means of permutations and by means of matrices, and deal with some applications in chemistry and physics.

*Proof, Sets, and Logic* by M.R. Holmes

Amazing blog! Do you have any recommendations for aspiring

writers? I’m planning to start my own website soon but I’m a

little lost on everything. Would you propose starting with

a free platform like WordPress or go for a paid option?

There are so many options out there that I’m totally overwhelmed ..

Any ideas? Bless you!
