Groups and Symmetry

"This book is a gentle introductory text on group theory and its application to the measurement of symmetry. It covers most of the material that one might expect to see in an undergraduate course . . . The theory is amplified, exemplified and properly related to what this part of algebra is really for by discussion of a wide variety of geometrical phenomena in which groups measure symmetry. Overall, the author's plan, to base his treatment on the premise that groups and symmetry go together, is a very good one, and the book deserves to succeed."-MATHEMATICAL REVIEWS
