Out of the 8 algebra books which I've checked, I have only found 1 which deals with the semidirect product: the one by Dummit & Foote.

Are there any other books which talk about it? Thanks.

    $\begingroup$ See for example here, or here. There are many books treating semidirect products. I can offer my notes, too. $\endgroup$ – Dietrich Burde Nov 16 '19 at 19:58
  • $\begingroup$ @DietrichBurde Thanks! I'll take a look. $\endgroup$ – Ovi Nov 16 '19 at 20:05
  • $\begingroup$ More likely to find it in a book that just does Group Theory than in a book that tries to cover all of Algebra, I think. $\endgroup$ – Gerry Myerson Nov 17 '19 at 1:31
