# PreTeXt Sample Book: Abstract Algebra (SAMPLE ONLY)

## AcknowledgementsAcknowledgements

I would like to acknowledge the following reviewers for their helpful comments and suggestions.
• David Anderson, University of Tennessee, Knoxville
• Robert Beezer, University of Puget Sound
• Myron Hood, California Polytechnic State University
Robert Beezer encouraged me to make Abstract Algebra: Theory and Applications available as an open source textbook, a decision that I have never regretted. With his assistance, the book has been rewritten in PreTeXt (pretextbook.org), making it possible to quickly output print, web, PDF versions and more from the same source. The open source version of this book has received support from the National Science Foundation (Award #DUE-1020957).
