Later printing [1965]. From the cover: “This book is for mathematics teachers and lecturers and it presents a logical (but not arduously rigorous) development of set theory, relations and functions and leads rapidly to group structure and homomorphic groups. The applications of these ideas to various branches of mathematics, including, for example, arithmetic, geometry and elementary topology, are developed in some detail, matrix methods being introduced and used from an early stage. No prior knowledge is assumed, except in the case of a relatively small number of examples which can be omitted without loss of understanding.”
