Textbook: Numbers, Groups and Codes,,
by J.H. Humphreys and M.Y. Prest, Cambridge University Press, 1989.
Unfortunately for us, the next edition of this book is going to appear in March or April, and as a result, the 1989 edition is scarce. There are only about 15 copies in the bookstore and StonyBooks (together)! It is available on amazon.com; they say it will ship within a week or so. Another source for the book is
