Mat 213 Lecture Note – In algebra, which is a broad division of mathematicsabstract algebra (occasionally called modern algebra) is the study of algebraic structures. Algebraic structures include groupsringsfieldsmodulesvector spaceslattices, and algebras. The term abstract algebra was coined in the early 20th century to distinguish this area of study from the other parts of algebra.


Algebraic structures, with their associated homomorphisms, form mathematical categoriesCategory theory is a formalism that allows a unified way for expressing properties and constructions that are similar for various structures.

Universal algebra is a related subject that studies types of algebraic structures as single objects. For example, the structure of groups is a single object in universal algebra, which is called variety of groups.
