This textbook of Algebra is essentially for junior college and college students preparing for Science and Engineering courses. The treatise introduces the core higher algebraic concepts such as complex numbers, theory of equations, determinants, sequences and limits, etc. to equip students with mathematical acumen to move to the higher levels. The chapters are arranged in line with the reasoning followed by the authors, expecting the students to follow it.


S Barnard (MA) was a British historian of Mathematics. He has authored many basic books of Geometry and Algebra. His book (along with J M Child) ‘A New Geometry for Schools’ is still a milestone work in the field of Elementary Mathematics.

J M Child (MA) was a British mathematician and teacher of Geometry and Algebra. The ‘Early Mathematical manuscripts of Leibniz’, ‘Higher Algebra’, ‘The Geometrical Lectures of Isaac Barrow’ are among some world famous creations of the author.
