Beginning with introductory examples of the gang notion, the textual content advances to concerns of teams of variations, isomorphism, cyclic subgroups, uncomplicated teams of events, invariant subgroups, and partitioning of teams. An appendix presents user-friendly recommendations from set idea. A wealth of straightforward examples, basically geometrical, illustrate the first thoughts. routines on the finish of every bankruptcy offer extra reinforcement.

Let us suppose by way of example that three elements a, b, c are given, then for the moment we do not know what is meant by the sum of these three elements; for the group axioms speak only of the sum of two elements, and expressions of the form a + b + c are not yet defined. But now the associative law states that if on the one hand we add the two elements and on the other hand the elements we then obtain one and the same element as their sum. Thus this element, which is the sum of a and b + c and also of a + b and c, may be defined without ambiguity as the sum of the elements a, b, c (in this order), and hence will be denoted simply by a + b + c.

On the understanding that 1a = a and —1a = —a. * Even for negative m the remainder r on division by > 0 is to be taken to be non-negative. Indeed if m is negative then —m is positive and can be written in the form where q′ and r′ are non-negative.
