In summary, a student is taking a mathematical physics course with a focus on abstract algebra. They are looking for a textbook for extra practice but are frustrated because the ones at their library do not have solutions. Some recommendations for books with solutions are The Theory of Groups and Its Application to Physical Problems by Bhagavantam and Venkatarayudu, Rowlatt's Group Theory and Elementary Particles, and abstract algebra books such as Artin's Abstract Algebra, Dummit and Foote's Abstract Algebra, Lang's Algebra, lecture notes by J.S. Milne, and graduate lecture notes by mathwonk.

In that case, I would maybe recommend

You could also try:

Rowlatt - Group Theory and Elementary Particles

And if you're just looking for good abstract algebra books...

Artin - Abstract Algebra

Dummit and Foote - Abstract Algebra

Lang - Algebra or Undergraduate Algebra

Or these awesome lecture notes covering a ton of different aspects of abstract algebra by J. S. Milne, a mathematician from New Zealand.

Or graduate abstract algebra lecture notes by PhysicsForums's own mathwonk here.

The textbook covers a wide range of topics, including classical mechanics, electromagnetism, quantum mechanics, statistical mechanics, and special relativity.

Yes, the textbook includes solutions for all problems presented in the text. This allows students to check their work and better understand the material.
