Abstract Algebra developed in the 19th century basically from the interest of solving equations. Number theory and geometry influenced its further developments. Work of Evariste Galois and Augustine Louis Cauchy are commonly referred to as the beginning of the subject.
In this course we begin with the abstract structure 'groups' and then proceed to rings and finally settle down with fields. We will focus on the basic results of the subject rather than doing a a detailed study as the subject is quite new to the student.

The study of real analysis is indispensable for a prospective graduate student of pure or applied mathematics. It also has great value for any student who wishes to go beyond the routine manipulations of formulas because it develops the ability to think deductively, analyze mathematical situations and extend ideas to new contexts.
