## MTH714U/MTHM024 - Group Theory - 2016/17

This module provides an introduction to advanced group theory. The aim is to explore the theory of finite groups by studying important examples in detail, such as simple groups. In particular, the projective special linear groups over small fields provide a rich vein of interesting cases on which to hang the general theory.
