Group theory concerns the study of symmetry. The course begins with the group axioms, which provide an abstract setting for the study of symmetry. We proceed to study subgroups, normal subgroups, and group actions in various guises. Group homomorphisms are introduced and the related isomorphism theorems are proved. Composition series are introduced and the JordanHolder theorem is proved. Sylow psubgroups are introduced and the three Sylow theorems are proved. Throughout symmetric groups are consulted as a source of examples.
