In mathematics and abstract algebra, group theory studies the algebraic structures known as groups.


  • Group theory is the mathematical expression of symmetry, providing appropriate mathematical tools for the implementation of symmetry considerations in theoretical physics.
  • The introduction of the digit 0 or the group concept was general nonsense too, and mathematics was more or less stagnating for thousands of years because nobody was around to take such childish steps...-Alexander Grothendieck
