Beginning with introductory examples of the crowd proposal, the textual content advances to issues of teams of variations, isomorphism, cyclic subgroups, easy teams of pursuits, invariant subgroups, and partitioning of teams. An appendix offers straight forward strategies from set idea. A wealth of straightforward examples, essentially geometrical, illustrate the first suggestions. workouts on the finish of every bankruptcy supply extra reinforcement.
