Reviews

I found this to be an excellent subject. For me it was very hard as it was the first real 'pure maths' subject I have done. If nothing else, you learn how to write proofs properly.

Not for the faint of heart, this is well and truly a Pure maths subject. If you thought Real Analysis was pretty abstract then you might be in for a surprise! It is a lot less pedantic than Real Analysis though, so that's a plus. As a previous review says, Alex Ghitza is a great lecturer if he's taking it again, with a nice technique of writing everything up as we go on the whiteboards. For us though he had to use doc cam 2 lectures a week, but it does mean it's important to go to lectures when he's using the boards as these were not recorded. As far as content is concerned, it's a great subject, mostly focusing on proofs of theorems extending from Linear Algebra, and introducing Group Theory (obviously!). It's very important to go to tutorials and do problems Alex leaves as an exercise in lectures as there is a lot of stuff to learn. I won't comment too much on the exam as it wasn't Alex's fault about the evacuation, but it does leave a slightly sour taste in the mouth... In summary, I really enjoyed this subject, and if you enjoy Maths for the beauty of it, and enjoy proofs, then you too will enjoy it, so long as you can keep up!

Alex Ghitza has the cleanest, and most perfect lecture technique i have seen in my life. No mistakes. He never gets confused. He is genuinely very good. The content is amazing also, but is very difficult, be prepared to study hard for it!

Although the exact notes in lectures will be post online, it is better to study them step-by-step and never lag behind. Otherwise, you might get lost in a few weeks
