An Algebraic Proof is a proof of a Theorem (or Lemma or Corollary) that relies highly on symbolic manipulation of equations to go from the assumption(s) to the conclusion(s). An algebraic proof may be contrasted with a combinatorial proof, which involves more discussion of the objects themselves, rather than the symbols representing them.
