Title:Representation Theory [electronic resource] : A Homological Algebra Point of View
Author(s): Alexander Zimmermann
Date:2014
Publisher:Cham : Springer International Publishing : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:Introducing the representation theory of groups and finite dimensional algebras, this book first studies basic non-commutative ring theory, covering the necessary background of elementary homological algebra andrepresentations of groups to block the ory. It further discusses vertices, defect groups, Green and Brauer correspondences and Clifford theory. Whenever possible the statements are presented in a general setting for more generalalgebras, such as symmetric finite dimensional algebras over a fie ld. Then, abelian and derived categories are introduced in detail and are used to explain stable module categories, as well as derived categories and their maininvariants and links between them. Group theoretical applications of these theories are given such as the structure of blocks of cyclic defect groups whenever appropriate. Overall, many methods from the representation theory ofalgebras are introduced. Representation Theory assumes only the most basic knowledge of linear algebra, groups, rings and fields, and guides the reader in the use of categorical equivalences in the representation theory of groups andalgebras. As the book is based on lectures, it will be accessible to any graduate student in algebra and can be used for self-study as well as for classroom use

Title:Algebraic Geometry and Commutative Algebra [electronic resource]
Author(s): Siegfried Bosch
Date:2013
Publisher:London : Springer London : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Algebraic geometry is a fascinating branch of mathematics that combines methods from both algebra and geometry. It transcends the limited scope of pure algebra by means of geometric construction principles. Moreover,Grothendiecks schemes invented in the late 1950s allowed the application of algebraic-geometric methods in fields that formerly seemed to be far away from geometry (algebraic number theory, for example). The new techniques paved theway to spectacular progress such as the proof of Fermats Last Theorem by Wiles and Taylor. The scheme-theoretic approach to algebraic geometry is explained for non-experts whilst more advanced readers can use the book to broadentheir view on the subject. A separate part studies the necessary prerequisites from commutative algebra. The book provides an accessible and self-contained introduction to algebraic geometry, up to an advanced level. Every chapter ofthe book is preceded by a motivating introduction with an informal discussion of the contents. Typical exa mples and an abundance of exercises illustrate each section. Therefore the book is an excellent solution for learning by yourselfor for complementing knowledge that is already present. It can equally be used as a convenient source for courses and seminars or as supplemental literature

Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:This book and the following second volume is an introduction into modern algebraic geometry. In the first volume the methods of homological algebra, theory of sheaves, and sheaf cohomology are developed. These methods areindispensable for modern alge braic geometry, but they are also fundamental for other branches of mathematics and of great interest in their own. In the last chapter of volume I these concepts are applied to the theory of compactRiemann surfaces. In this chapter the author makes clear how influential the ideas of Abel, Riemann and Jacobi were and that many of the modern methods have been anticipated by them

Title:Algebraic Operads [electronic resource]
Author(s): Jean-Louis Loday
Bruno Vallette
Date:2012
Publisher:Berlin, Heidelberg : Springer Berlin Heidelberg : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:In many areas of mathematics some higher operations are arising. These have become so important that several research projects refer to such expressions. Higher operations form new types of algebras. The key tounderstanding and comparing them, to cre ating invariants of their action is operad theory. This is a point of view that is 40 years old in algebraic topology, but the new trend is its appearance in several other areas, such asalgebraic geometry, mathematical physics, differential geometry, and combinatorics. The present volume is the first comprehensive and systematic approach to algebraic operads. An operad is an algebraic device that serves to study allkinds of algebras (associative, commutative, Lie, Poisson, A-infinity, etc.) from a concept ual point of view. The book presents this topic with an emphasis on Koszul duality theory. After a modern treatment of Koszul duality forassociative algebras, the theory is extended to operads. Applications to homotopy algebra are given, for instance the HomotopyTransfer Theorem. Although the necessary notions of algebra are recalled, readers areexpected to be familiarwith elementary homological algebra. Each chapter ends with a helpful summary and exercises. A full chapter is devoted to examples, and num erous figures are included. After an elementary chapter on classical algebra, accessible toundergraduate students,the level increases gradually through the book. However, the authors have done their best to make it suitable for graduate students: three ap pendices review the basic results needed in order to understand thevarious chapters. Since higher algebra is becoming essential in several research areas like deformation theory, algebraic geometry, representation theory, differential geometry, algebraic combinatorics, and mathematical physics, thebook can also be used as a reference work by researchers.

Note:This book is about modern algebraic geometry. The title A Royal Road to Algebraic Geometry is inspired by the famous anecdote about the king asking Euclid if there really existed no simpler way for learning geometry, than to readall of his work Eleme nts. Euclid is said to have answered: There is no royal road to geometry! The book starts by explaining this enigmatic answer, the aim of the book being to argue that indeed, in some sense there is a royalroad to algebraic geometry. From a point of depart ure in algebraic curves, the exposition moves on to the present shape of the field, culminating with Alexander Grothendiecks theory of schemes. Contemporary homological tools areexplained. The reader will follow a directed path leading up to the main elem ents of modern algebraic geometry. When the road is completed, the reader is empowered to start navigating in this immense field, and to open up the door to awonderful field of research. The greatest scientific experience of a lifetime!

Title:The Local Structure of Algebraic K-Theory [electronic resource]

Note:Algebraic K-theory encodes important invariants for several mathematical disciplines, spanning from geometric topology and functional analysis to number theory and algebraic geometry. As is commonly encountered, this powerfulmathematical object is ve ry hard to calculate. Apart from Quillen's calculations of finite fields and Suslin's calculation of algebraically closed fields, few complete calculations were available before the discovery of homologicalinvariants offered by motivic cohomology and topo logical cyclic homology. This book covers the connection between algebraic K-theory and Bkstedt, Hsiang and Madsen's topological cyclic homology and proves that the difference betweenthe theories are locally constant. The usefulness of this theorem stems from being more accessible for calculations than K-theory, and hence a single calculation of K-theory can be used with homological calculations to obtain ahost of nearby calculations in K-theory. For instance, Quillen's calculation of the K-theory of fini te fields gives rise to Hesselholt and Madsen's calculations for local fields, and Voevodsky's calculations for the integers giveinsight into the diffeomorphisms of manifolds. In addition to the proof of the full integral version of the local corresponden ce between K-theory and topological cyclic homology, the book provides an introduction to the necessarybackground in algebraic K-theory and highly structured homotopy theory collecting all necessary tools into one common framework. It relies on simplicial techniques, and contains an appendix summarizing the methods widely used in thefield. The book is intended for graduate students and scientists interested in algebraic K-theory, and presupposes a basic knowledge of algebraic topology

Title:Syzygies and Homotopy Theory [electronic resource]
Author(s): F.E.A Johnson
Date:2012
Publisher:London : Springer London
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:The most important invariant of a topological space is its fundamental group. When this is trivial, the resulting homotopy theory is well researched and familiar. In the general case, however, homotopy theory over nontrivialfundamental groups is much more problematic and far less well understood. Syzygies and Homotopy Theory explores the problem of nonsimply connected homotopy in the first nontrivial cases and presents, for the first time, a systematicrehabilitation of Hilbert's method of syzygies in the context of non-simply connected homotopy theory. The first part of the book is theoretical, formulated to allow a general finitely presented group as a fundamental group. Theinnovation here is to regard syzygies as stable modules rather than minimal modules. Inevitably this forces a reconsideration of the problems of noncancellation these are confronted in the second, practical, part of the book. Inparticular, the second part of the book considers how the theory works out in detail for the specific e xamples Fn F where Fn is a free group of rank n and F is finite. Another innovation is to parametrize the first syzygy in terms ofthe more familiar class of stably free modules. Furthermore, detailed description of these stably free modules is effected by a suitable modification of the method of Milnor squares. The theory developed within this book has potentialapplications in various branches of algebra, including homological algebra, ring theory and K-theory. Syzygies and Homotopy Theory will be of inte rest to researchers and also to graduate students with a background in algebra andalgebraic topology

Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:The Virasoro algebra is an infinite dimensional Lie algebra that plays an increasingly important role in mathematics and theoretical physics. This book describes some fundamental facts about the representation theory of theVirasoro algebra in a self- contained manner. Topics include the structure of Verma modules and Fock modules, the classification of (unitarizable) Harish-Chandra modules, tilting equivalence, and the rational vertex operator algebrasassociated to the so-called minimal series represe ntations. Covering a wide range of material, this book has three appendices which provide background information required for some of the chapters. Fundamental resultsareorganizedin a unified way and existing proofs refined. For instance in chapter three, a generalization of Jantzen filtration is reformulated in an algebraic manner, and geometric interpretation is provided. Statements, widelybelieved to be true, are collated, and results which are known but not verified are proven, such as the corrected s tructure theorem of Fock modules in chapter eight. This book will be of interest to a wide range of mathematicians andphysicists from the level of graduate students to researchers

Note:This book is centered around higher algebraic structures stemming from the work of Murray Gerstenhaber and Jim Stasheff that are now ubiquitous in various areas of mathematics such as algebra, algebraic topology, differentialgeometry, algebraic geome try, mathematical physics and in theoretical physics such as quantum field theory and string theory. These higher algebraic structures provide a common language essential in the study of deformationquantization, theory of algebroids and groupoids, symplec tic field theory, and much more. The ideas of higher homotopies and algebraic deformation have a growing number of theoretical applications and have played a prominent role inrecent mathematical advances. For example, algebraic versions of higher homotopi es have led eventually to the proof of the formality conjecture and the deformation quantization of Poisson manifolds. As observed in deformations anddeformation philosophy, a basic observation is that higher homotopy structures behave much better than st rict structures. Each contribution in this volume expands on the ideas of Gerstenhaber and Stasheff. Higher Structures in Geometryand Physics is intended for post-graduate students, mathematical and theoretical physicists, and mathematicians interested in higher structures. Contributors: L.

Title:The Use of Ultraproducts in Commutative Algebra [electronic resource]
Author(s): Hans Schoutens
Date:2010
Publisher:Berlin, Heidelberg : Springer Berlin Heidelberg
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:In spite of some recent applications of ultraproducts in algebra, they remain largely unknown to commutative algebraists, in part because they do not preserve basic properties such as Noetherianity. This work wants to make astrong case against these prejudices. More precisely, it studies ultraproducts of Noetherian local rings from a purely algebraic perspective, as well as how they can be used to transfer results between the positive and zerocharacteristics, to derive uniform bounds, to define tight closure in characteristic zero, and to prove asymptotic versions of homological conjectures in mixed characteristic. Some of these results are obtained using variants calledchromatic products, which are often even Noetherian. This book, neither assuming nor using any logical formalism, is intended for algebraists and geometers, in the hope of popularizing ultraproducts and their applications in algebra

Title:Homological Algebra of Semimodules and Semicontramodules [electronic resource] : Semi-infinite Homological Algebra of Associative Algebraic Structures
Author(s): Leonid Positselski
Date:2010
Publisher:Basel : Springer Basel
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:This monograph deals with semi-infinite homological algebra. Intended as the definitive treatment of the subject of semi-infinite homology and cohomology of associative algebraic structures, it also contains material on thesemi-infinite (co)homology of Lie algebras and topological groups, the derived comodule-contramodule correspondence, its application to the duality between representations of infinite-dimensional Lie algebras with complementary centralcharges, and relative non-homogeneous Koszul du ality. The book explains with great clarity what the associative version of semi-infinite cohomology is, why it exists, and for what kind of objects it is defined. Semialgebras,contramodules, exotic derived categories, Tate Lie algebras, algebraic Harish- Chandra pairs, and locally compact totally disconnected topological groups all interplay in the theories developed in this monograph. Contramodules,introduced originally by Eilenberg and Moore in the 1960s but almost forgotten for four decades, are featur ed prominently in this book, with many versions of them introduced and discussed. Rich in new ideas on homological algebra andthe theory of corings and their analogues, this book also makes a contribution to the foundational aspects of representation theo ry. In particular, it will be a valuable addition to the algebraic literature available to mathematicalphysicists

Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Rationality problems link algebra to geometry. The difficulties involved depend on the transcendence degree over the ground field, or geometrically, on the dimension of the variety. A major success in 19th century algebraicgeometry was a complete sol ution of the rationality problem in dimensions one and two over algebraically closed ground fields of characteristic zero. These advances have led to many interdisciplinary applications of algebraic geometry.This comprehensive text consists of surveys and research papers by leading specialists in the field. Topics discussed include the rationality of quotient spaces, cohomological invariants of finite groups of Lie type, rationality ofmoduli spaces of curves, and rational points on algebraic varieties. Th is volume is intended for research mathematicians and graduate students interested in algebraic geometry, and specifically in rationality problems. I. Bauer C.Bhning F. Bogomolov F. Catanese I.

Note:A fundamental object of study in group theory is the lower central series of groups. Understanding its relationship with the dimension series, which consists of the subgroups determined by the augmentation powers, is a challengingtask. This monograph presents an exposition of different methods for investigating this relationship. In addition to group theorists, the results are also of interest to topologists and number theorists. The approach is mainlycombinatorial and homological. A novel feature is an exposition of simplicial methods for the study of problems in group theory

Title:Simplicial Homotopy Theory [electronic resource]

Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Since the beginning of the modern era of algebraic topology, simplicial methods have been used systematically and effectively for both computation and basic theory. With the development of Quillen's concept of a closed modelcategory and, in particula r, a simplicial model category, this collection of methods has become the primary way to describe non-abelian homological algebra and to address homotopy-theoretical issues in a variety of fields, includingalgebraic K-theory. This book supplies a modern e xposition of these ideas, emphasizing model category theoretical techniques. Discussed here are the homotopy theory of simplicial sets, and other basic topics such as simplicial groups,Postnikov towers, and bisimplicial sets. The more advanced material in cludes homotopy limits and colimits, localization with respect to a map and with respect to a homology theory, cosimplicial spaces, and homotopy coherence.Interspersed throughout are many results and ideas well-known to experts, but uncollected in the lit erature. Intended for second-year graduate students and beyond, this book introduces many of the basic tools of modern homotopy theory.An extensive background in topology is not assumed. Reviews: a book filling an obvious gap in the literature and the au thors have done an excellent job on it. No monograph or expository paper has been published on this topic inthe last twenty-eight years. - Analele Universitatii din Timisoara is clearly presented and a brief summary preceding every chapter is useful to t he reader. The book should prove enlightening to a broad range of readersincluding prospective students and researchers who want to apply simplicial techniques for whatever reason. - Zentralblatt MATH they succeed. The book is an excellent account of sim plicial homotopy theory from a modern point ofview [] The book is well written. [] The book can be highly recommended to anybody who wants to learn and to apply simplicial techniques

Publisher:New York, NY : Springer New York
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:This book treats the interaction between discrete convex geometry, commutative ring theory, algebraic K-theory, and algebraic geometry. The basic mathematical objects are lattice polytopes, rational cones, affine monoids, thealgebras derived from the m, and toric varieties. The book discusses several properties and invariants of these objects, such as efficient generation, unimodular triangulations and covers, basic theory of monoid rings, isomorphismproblems and automorphism groups, homological prope rties and enumerative combinatorics. The last part is an extensive treatment of the K-theory of monoid rings, with extensions to toric varieties and their intersection theory. Thismonograph has been written with a view towards graduate students and resear chers who want to study the cross-connections of algebra and discrete convex geometry. While the text has been written from an algebraist's view point, alsospecialists in lattice polytopes and related objects will find an up-to-date discussion of affine m onoids and their combinatorial structure. Though the authors do not explicitly formulate algorithms, the book takes a constructiveapproach wherever possible. Winfried Bruns is Professor of Mathematics at Universitt Osnabrck. Joseph Gubeladze is Professor of Mathematics at San Francisco State University

Title:An Introduction to Homological Algebra [electronic resource]
Author(s): Joseph J Rotman
Date:2009
Publisher:New York, NY : Springer New York
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:With a wealth of examples as well as abundant applications to Algebra, this is a must-read work: a clearly written, easy-to-follow guide to Homological Algebra. The author provides a treatment of Homological Algebra whichapproaches the subject in ter ms of its origins in algebraic topology. In this brand new edition the text has been fully updated and revised throughout and new material on sheaves and abelian categories has been added. Applicationsinclude the following: * to rings -- Lazard's theorem that flat modules are direct limits of free modules, Hilbert's Syzygy Theorem, Quillen-Suslin's solution of Serre's problem about projectives over polynomial rings,Serre-Auslander-Buchsbaum characterization of regular local rings (and a sketch of unique f actorization) * to groups -- Schur-Zassenhaus, Gaschutz's theorem on outer automorphisms of finite p-groups, Schur multiplier, cotorsiongroups * to sheaves -- sheaf cohomology, Cech cohomology, discussion of Riemann-Roch Theorem over compact Riemann surfa ces. Learning Homological Algebra is a two-stage affair. Firstly, one must learn the language of Ext and Tor, andwhat this describes. Secondly, one must be able to compute these things using a separate language: that of spectral sequences. The basic prope rties of spectral sequences are developed using exact couples. All is done in the context ofbicomplexes, for almost all applications of spectral sequences involve indices. Applications include Grothendieck spectral sequences, change of rings, Lyndon-Hochs child-Serre sequence, and theorems of Leray and Cartan computing sheafcohomology. Joseph Rotman is Professor Emeritus of Mathematics at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. He is the author of numerous successful textbooks, including Advanced M odern Algebra (Prentice-Hall 2002), Galois Theory,2nd Edition (Springer 1998) A First Course in Abstract Algebra (Prentice-Hall 1996), Introduction to the Theory of Groups, 4th Edition (Springer 1995)

Title:A Singular Introduction to Commutative Algebra [electronic resource]

Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:From the reviews: It is certainly no exaggeration to say that Greuel and Pfister's A Singular Introduction to Commutative Algebra aims to lead a further stage in the computational revolution in commutative algebra, in whichcomputational methods and r esults become central to how the subject is taught and learned. [] Among the great strengths and most distinctive features of Greuel and Pfister's book is a new, completely unified treatment of the globaland local theories. The realization that the two ca ses could be combined to this extent was decisive in the design of the Singular system, making it one of the most flexible and most efficient systems of its type. The authors presentthe first systematic development of this unified approach in a textbook h ere, and this aspect alone is almost worth the price of admission. Another distinctive feature of this book is the degree of integration of explicit computationalexamples into the flow of the text. Strictly mathematical components of the development (ofte n quite terse and written in a formal theorem-proof style) are interspersed with parallel discussions of features of Singular and numerousSingular examples giving input commands, some extended programs in the Singular language, and output. [] Yet another strength of Greuel and Pfister's book is its breadth of coverage of theoretical topics in the portions ofcommutative algebra closest to algebraic geometry, with algorithmic treatments of almost every topic. A synopsis of the table of contents will make th is clear. [] Greuel and Pfister have written a distinctive an highly useful bookthat should be in the library of every commutative algebrais and algebraic geometer, expert and novice alike. I hope that it achieves the educational impact it deserves. John B. Little, Monthly of The Mathematical Association ofAmerica, March 2004 ...

Title:Topological Methods in Group Theory [electronic resource]
Author(s): Ross Geoghegan
Date:2008
Publisher:New York, NY : Springer New York
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Topological Methods in Group Theory is about the interplay between algebraic topology and the theory of infinite discrete groups. The author has kept three kinds of readers in mind: graduate students who have had an introductorycourse in algebraic to pology and who need a bridge from common knowledge to the current research literature in geometric, combinatorial and homological group theory group theorists who would like to know more about the topologicalside of their subject but who have been too lon g away from topology and manifold topologists, both high- and low-dimensional, since the book contains much basic material on proper homotopy and locally finite homology not easily foundelsewhere. The book focuses on two main themes: 1. Topological Finite ness Properties of groups (generalizing the classical notions of finitely generated and finitely presented) 2. Asymptotic Aspects of Infinite Groups(generalizing the classical notion of the number of ends of a group). Illustrative examples treated in some detail include: Bass-Serre theory, Coxeter groups, Thompson groups, Whitehead's contractible 3-manifold, Davis's exoticcontractible manifolds in dimensions greater than three, the Bestvina-Brady Theorem, and the Bieri-Neumann-Strebel invariant. The book also includes a highly geometrical treatment of Poincar duality (via cells and dual cells) tobring out the topological meaning of Poincar duality groups. To keep the length reasonable and the focus clear, it is assumed that the reader knows or can easily learn the necessary algebra (which is clearly summarized) but wants tosee the topology done in detail. Apart from the introductory material, most of the mathematics presented here has not appeared in book form before

Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Braids and braid groups have been at the heart of mathematical development over the last two decades. Braids play an important role in diverse areas of mathematics and theoretical physics. The special beauty of the theory ofbraids stems from their at tractive geometric nature and their close relations to other fundamental geometric objects, such as knots, links, mapping class groups of surfaces, and configuration spaces. In this presentation the authorsthoroughly examine various aspects of the theory of braids, starting from basic definitions and then moving to more recent results. The advanced topics cover the Burau and the Lawrence--Krammer--Bigelow representations of the braidgroups, the Alexander--Conway and Jones link polynomials, connections wit h the representation theory of the Iwahori--Hecke algebras, and the Garside structure and orderability of the braid groups. This book will serve graduatestudents, mathematicians, and theoretical physicists interested in low-dimensional topology and its co nnections with representation theory

Title:Tool and Object [electronic resource] : A History and Philosophy of Category Theory
Author(s): Ralf Krmer
Date:2007
Publisher:Basel : Birkhuser Basel
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:The book is first of all a history of category theory from the beginnings to A. Grothendieck and F.W. Lawvere. Category theory was an important conceptual tool in 20th century mathematics whose influence on some mathematicalsubdisciplines (above all algebraic topology and algebraic geometry) is analyzed. Category theory also has an important philosophical aspect: on the one hand its set-theoretical foundation is less obvious than for other mathematicaltheories, and on the other hand it unifies concep tually a large part of modern mathematics and may therefore be considered as somewhat fundamental itself. The role of this philosophical aspect in the historical development is thesecond focus of the book. Relying on the historical analysis, the author de velops a philosophical interpretation of the theory of his own, intending to get closer to how mathematicians conceive the significance of their activity thantraditional schools of philosophy of science. The book is the first monography exclusively devote d to the history of category theory. To a substantial extent it considers aspects never studied before. The author uses (and justifies theuse of) a methodology combining historical and philosophical approaches. The analysis is not confined to general rema rks, but goes into considerable mathematical detail. Hence, the book provides an exceptionally thorough case studycompared with other works on history or philosophy of mathematics. The philosophical position developed here (inspired by Peircean pragmatism and Wittgenstein) is an interesting alternative to traditional approaches in philosophy ofmathematics like platonism, formalism and intuitionism

Note:Basic Algebra and Advanced Algebra systematically develop concepts and tools in algebra that are vital to every mathematician, whether pure or applied, aspiring or established. Together, the two books give the reader a globalview of algebra and its r ole in mathematics as a whole. Key topics and features of Advanced Algebra: *Topics build upon the linear algebra, group theory, factorization of ideals, structure of fields, Galois theory, and elementarytheory of modules as developed in Basic Algebra *Ch apters treat various topics in commutative and noncommutative algebra, providing introductions to the theory of associative algebras, homological algebra, algebraic number theory, andalgebraic geometry *Sections in two chapters relate the theory to the su bject of Grbner bases, the foundation for handling systems of polynomial equations in computer applications *Text emphasizes connections between algebra andother branches of mathematics, particularly topology and complex analysis *Book carries on two prom inent themes recurring in Basic Algebra: the analogy between integers and polynomials in one variable over a field, and the relationshipbetween number theory and geometry *Many examples and hundreds of problems are included, along with hints or complete s olutions for most of the problems *The exposition proceeds from the particular to the general, often providingexamples well before a theory that incorporates them it includes blocks of problems that illuminate aspects of the text and introduce additional topics Advanced Algebra presents its subject matter in a forward-looking way that takesinto account the historical development of the subject. It is suitable as a text for the more advanced parts of a two-semester first-year graduate sequence in algebra. It requires of the reader only a familiarity with the topicsdeveloped in Basic Algebra

Note:The many diverse articles presented in these three volumes, collected on the occasion of Alexander Grothendiecks sixtieth birthday and originally published in 1990, were offered as a tribute to one of the worlds greatestliving mathematicians. Grothen dieck changed the very way we think about many branches of mathematics. Many of his ideas, revolutionary when introduced, now seem so natural as to have been inevitable. Indeed, it is difficult to fullygrasp the influence his vast contributions to modern mathematics have subsequently had on new generations of mathematicians. Many of the groundbreaking contributions in these volumes contain material that is now considered foundationalto the subject. Topics addressed by these top-notch contributors match th e breadth of Grothendiecks own interests, including: functional analysis, algebraic geometry, algebraic topology, number theory, representation theory,K-theory, category theory, and homological algebra.

Title:Exercises in Modules and Rings [electronic resource]
Author(s): T. Y Lam
Date:2007
Publisher:New York, NY : Springer New York
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:For the Backcover This Problem Book offers a compendium of 639 exercises of varying degrees of difficulty in the subject of modules and rings at the graduate level. The material covered includes projective, injective, and flatmodules, homological and uniform dimensions, noncommutative localizations and Goldies theorems, maximal rings of quotients, Frobenius and quasi-Frobenius rings, as well as Moritas classical theory of category dualities andequivalences. Each of the nineteen sections begins with a n introduction giving the general background and the theoretical basis for the problems that follow. All exercises are solved in full detail many are accompanied by pertinenthistorical and bibliographical information, or a commentary on possible improveme nts, generalizations, and latent connections to other problems. This volume is designed as a problem book for the authors Lectures on Modules and Rings(Springer GTM, Vol. 189), from which the majority of the exercises were taken. Some forty new exercises have been added to further broaden the coverage. As a result, this book is ideal both as a companion volume to Lectures, and as asource for independent study. For students and researchers alike, this book will also serve as a handy reference for a copious amount of information in algebra and ring theory otherwise unavailable from textbooks. An outgrowth of theauthors lecture courses and seminars over the years at the University of California at Berkeley, this book and its predecessor Exercises in Classica l Ring Theory (Springer, 2003) offer to the mathematics community the fullest andmost comprehensive reference to date for problem solving in the theory of modules and rings

Title:Mathematical Survey Lectures 19432004 [electronic resource]

Date:2006
Publisher:Berlin, Heidelberg : Springer Berlin Heidelberg
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:This collection traces the career of Beno Eckmann, whose work ranges across a broad spectrum of mathematical concepts from topology and differential geometry through homological algebra to group theory. One of our most influentialliving mathematician s, Eckmann has been associated for nearly his entire professional life with the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology Zurich (ETH), as student, lecturer, professor, and professor emeritus. The lectures offer afascinating account of advances in pure mathem atics from 1943 to 2004, as new topics and methods are introduced, and gradually become routine. The penultimate lecture is a personal-historical overview of algebraic topology, deliveredin connection with the 40-year jubilee of the Institute for Mathemat ical Research (FIM), which Eckmann founded at ETH in 1964. In the final article, Eckmann looks beyond pure mathematics to consider the application in concrete fieldsof intellectual enterprise

Publisher:Berlin, Heidelberg : Springer Berlin Heidelberg
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:The theory of idempotent matrices with entries in complex group algebras has recently experienced a revival, in view of its close relationship with deep geometric problems and conjectures. The relevant questions studied in thisbook for general groups are motivated by specific examples. A variety of techniques is employed from commutative algebra, homological algebra and functional analysis. The book can serve as an introduction to this lively research area.The pace is suitable for independent study a nd the level of the presentation not very demanding. The exercises at the end of each chapter form an essential part of the book

Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Categories and sheaves, which emerged in the middle of the last century as an enrichment for the concepts of sets and functions, appear almost everywhere in mathematics nowadays. This book covers categories, homological algebraand sheaves in a system atic and exhaustive manner starting from scratch, and continues with full proofs to an exposition of the most recent results in the literature, and sometimes beyond. The authors present the general theory ofcategories and functors, emphasising inductive a nd projective limits, tensor categories, representable functors, ind-objects and localization. Then they study homological algebra including additive, abelian, triangulated categories andalso unbounded derived categories using transfinite induction and ac cessible objects. Finally, sheaf theory as well as twisted sheaves and stacks appear in the framework of Grothendieck topologies

Title:Ideals and Reality [electronic resource] : Projective Modules and Number of Generators of Ideals
Author(s): Friedrich Ischebeck
Ravi A Rao
Date:2005
Publisher:Berlin, Heidelberg : Springer Berlin Heidelberg
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:This monograph tells the story of a philosophy of J-P. Serre and his vision of relating that philosophy to problems in affine algebraic geometry. It gives a lucid presentation of the Quillen-Suslin theorem settling Serre'sconjecture. The central topi c of the book is the question of whether a curve in $n$-space is as a set an intersection of $(n-1)$ hypersurfaces, depicted by the central theorems of Ferrand, Szpiro, Cowsik-Nori, Mohan Kumar, Boratnski.The book gives a comprehensive introduction to bas ic commutative algebra, together with the related methods from homological algebra, which will enable students who know only the fundamentals of algebra to enjoy the power of usingthese tools. At the same time, it also serves as a valuable reference for t he research specialist and as potential course material, because the authors present, for the first time in book form, an approach here that is an intermix ofclassical algebraic K-theory and complete intersection techniques, making connections with the fa mous results of Forster-Swan and Eisenbud-Evans. A study of projective modules and their connections with topological vector bundles in aform due to Vaserstein is included. Important subsidiary results appear in the copious exercises. Even this advanced m aterial, presented comprehensively, keeps in mind the young student as potential reader besides the specialists ofthe subject
