Preface The purpose of this book is to provide college and university students of mathematics with an accessible yet nontrivial introduction to those concepts which are basic to abstract algebra or the analysis of abstract algebraic systems.

These pairings produced other elements, the ordered pairs which made up the relations and functions. Now we shall consider a more fertile type of pairing of elements of a set, a type of pairing which will “produce” an element of the same set. This concept of combining elements of a set S to obtain other elements of S is an abstraction of the familiar ideas of addition and multiplication. 10. A binary operation on the set S is a function O from the set S × S to the set S. Using the notation of the previous section we would write when the element ((a, b), c) lies in O.

Is it possible to have a relation on a set of relations ? Illustrate by considering the subsets of S × S under set inclusion. 10. Let S be the set of all subsets of the set A = {a, b, c}, and let set inclusion be a relation on S. Draw a nodal diagram for the set and its relation. 11. Draw a nodal diagram illustrating a finite set with a linear order.
