I want to self-study group theory.

Does anyone have good recommendations for me?

  • $\begingroup$ Do you know any group theory already? How mathematically mature are you? $\endgroup$ – Brevan Ellefsen Jun 22 '19 at 20:04
  • $\begingroup$ I don't know much about group theory, but I think I am mathematically mature enough for a "rigorous" book. $\endgroup$ – Danijar Dreger Jun 22 '19 at 20:07

  • $\begingroup$ If you haven't taken an abstract algebra course, it might be a good idea to grab an introductory undergrad text on that, such as Artin's Algebra, and read it's section on groups first. Plus such a text will also contain a general variety of applications of groups, for instance to Galois theory and to combinatorics (see the Pólya enumeration theorem). $\endgroup$ – Kaj Hansen Jun 22 '19 at 20:18
