About the book

Group Theory: An Expedition with SageMath provides a rigorous introduction to the basics aspect group theory. In addition to the conventional group theory, the book introduces SageMath, a free open source computer algebra system based on Python programming language. The book is in parts. The first part is about an introduction to basic group theory, can be used as a standard textbook. The book contains many illustrative examples and exercises to help the reader to critically analyse appreciate various concepts in group theory. The second part is an attempt to demonstrate SageMath can be used as an effective tool to understand computational aspects of group theory.

Key Features
