I am trying to self-study this course.
The pre-requisites for this course is multi-variable calculus, for which I am not well-versed, but I will cover necessary material when necessary.
I am also doing the assignments from the same course which require the Herstein textbook (not available for free). You can do them if you want. I am doing them to consolidate my knowledge on the algebraic structures.
Why are you doing this course? I don’t know. There are some interesting theorems that act as beacons of light and I hope that they will be good enough for me to persevere through this sea of difficult abstraction. Join me!
