Elements of Group Theory

Part of the Texts and Readings in Physical Sciences book series


A set S is a collection of entities called elements of the set. If a is an element belonging to the set S, we write aS (read a belongs to S or is contained in S). If it does not we write aS. Equivalently one also writes Sa or Sa for these relations.
