General algebra, otherwise known as universal algebra, provides a theory within which to study the common features of all algebraic systems such as vector spaces, groups, rings, lattices and semigroups. The subject will present all of the basic results in the theory as well as providing an introduction to important recent developments. The close relationship between general algebra and lattice theory will be emphasised throughout.
