I am about to embark on a journey through Isaacs' Algebra: A Graduate Course. He provides in the preface a very nice, detailed outline of what he covers while teaching his first-year graduate algebra course. I would like to follow this outline, and it would be wonderful to actually 'take the course' as much as possible. So my question is:
Where, if anywhere, on the internet could I could access the homework problems assigned for Isaacs' first-year graduate algebra course?
I see that he is now retired from University of Wisconsin, Madison, and it appears that his webpage has been taken down from the school site. A Google search did not yield anything either. I'm hoping someone may have the homework problems from the course, or know where to find them.
I would also like to ask...
Would it be reasonable to e-mail Professor Isaacs to ask for the set of homework problems he used?
Isaacs' book seems popular and I see that there are several questions on this site on problems from his book, so I think this could very well be of interest to multiple people who use this site.
I suppose I would also settle for a different set of problems that closely follows the outline of Isaacs' course, but understandably I'd love to have the problems he used personally.
