*Prerequisite: *None.

*Course description:*:
The course provides basic notions and methods in classical algebra needed
e.g. in linear and abstract algebra. However, it is intended to give a couple of
concrete applications. It is strongly advised as a supplementary course
for those being interested in abstract algebra but lacking the basics, but useful in many other subjects.
As a general rule, if the sample problems in the syllabus below are mysterious,
students should consider (and strongly advised) sitting in.
