I'm studying Axiomatic Linear Algebra and the text book is GTM216. But I found it is too hard to understand, even in the 1st page.
For example, the third line in the page 1 is “There are also finite fields, such as Fρ:= Z / ρZ”
I know what is field. But I really don't know what are those symbols meaning and I don't know which material I should refer to.
I only took basic undergraduate level linear algebra and didn't take abstract algebra.
So When I was reading this book, I got stuck almost every 5 or 6 lines. It's really frustrating but I really need to read this book and understand it.
I think this is because I missed some prerequisites.
Can anyone help me out or let me know which books/materials/blogs/websites that I could use to help me to understand this book?
Thank you guys so much!
