{\bf Course Content:} The 601/602
sequence generally covers most of the
material for the graduate algebra
candidacy exam, together with selected
additional topics if time permits.
In 602, we hope to cover:
basic topics on modules not treated in 601
(tensor products, structure theory of modules
over a PID and applications to canonical forms
of matrices, from Ch IV and VII of text),
field theory and Galois theory
(Ch V,VI), elementary commutative algebra (Ch
VIII) and structure of semisimple rings (Ch
IX).\smallskip \vfill\eject\bye
