Universal algebra by
P. M Cohn(
Book
)
51 editions published between 1965 and 2002 in 3 languages and held by 948 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The present book was conceived as an introduction for the user of universal algebra, rather than a handbook for the specialist, but when the first edition appeared in 1965, there were practically no other books entir~ly devoted to the subject, whether introductory or specialized. Today the specialist in the field is well provided for, but there is still a demand for an introduction to the subject to suit the user, and this seemed to justify a reissue of the book. Naturally some changes have had to be made; in particular, I have corrected all errors that have been brought to my notice. Besides errors, some obscurities in the text have been removed and the references brought up to date. I should like to express my thanks to a number of correspondents for their help, in particular C.G. d'Ambly, W. Felscher, P. Goralcik, P.J. Higgins, H.J. Hoehnke, J.R. Isbell, A.H. Kruse, E.J. Peake, D. Suter, J.S. Wilson. But lowe a special debt to G.M. Bergman, who has provided me with extensive comments. particularly on Chapter VII and the supplementary chapters. I have also con sulted reviews of the first edition, as well as the Italian and Russian translations

Introduction to ring theory by
P. M Cohn(
Book
)
24 editions published between 2000 and 2004 in English and Undetermined and held by 547 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Most parts of algebra have undergone great changes and advances this century, perhaps none more so than ring theory. In this volume, Paul Cohn provides a clear and structured introduction to the subject." "After a chapter on the definition of rings and modules there are brief accounts of Artinian rings, commutative Noetherian rings and ring constructions, such as the direct product, tensor product and rings of fractions, followed by a description of free rings. The reader is assumed to have a basic understanding of set theory, group theory and vector spaces. Over two hundred carefully selected exercises are included, most with outline solutions."Jacket

Skew fields : theory of general division rings by
P. M Cohn(
Book
)
21 editions published between 1995 and 2008 in English and Italian and held by 409 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The construction and basic properties of existentially closed skew fields are given, leading to an example of a model class with an infinite forcing companion which is not axiomatizable. The treatment of equations over skew fields has been simplified and extended by the use of matrix methods, and the beginnings of noncommutative algebraic geometry are presented, with a precise account of the problems that need to be overcome for a satisfactory theory. A separate chapter describes valuations and orderings on skew fields, with a construction applicable to free fields. Numerous exercises test the reader's understanding, presenting further aspects and open problems in concise form, and notes and comments at the ends of chapters provide historical background

Linear equations by

)
41 editions published between 1958 and 1980 in 3 languages and held by 404 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
LINEAR equations play an important part, not only in mathe matics itself, but also in many fields in which mathematics is used. Whether we deal with elastic deformations or electrical networks, the flutter of aeroplane wings or the estimation of errors by the method of least squares, at some stage in the cal culation we encounter a system of linear equations. In each case the problem of solving the equations is the same, and it is with the mathematical treatment of this question that this book is concerned. By meeting the problem in its pure state the reader will gain an insight which it is hoped will help him when he comes to apply it to his field of work. The actual pro cess of setting up the equations and of interpreting the solution is one which more properly belongs to that field, and in any case is a problem of a different nature altogether. So we need not concern ourselves with it here and are able to concentrate on the mathematical aspect of the situation. The most important tools for handling linear equations are vectors and matrices, and their basic properties are developed in separate chapters. The method by which the nature of the solution is described is one which leads immediately to a solu tion in practical cases, and it is a method frequently adopted when solving problems by mechanical or electronic computers

Basic algebra : groups, rings, and fields by
P. M Cohn(
Book
)
21 editions published between 2002 and 2015 in English and Chinese and held by 268 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Basic Algebra is the first volume of a new and revised edition of P.M. Cohn's classic threevolume text Algebra which is widely regarded as one of the most outstanding introductory algebra textbooks. For this edition, the text has been reworked and updated into two selfcontained, companion volumes, covering advanced topics in algebra for second and thirdyear undergraduate and postgraduate research students. In this first volume, the author covers the important results of algebra; the companion volume, Further Algebra and Applications, brings more advanced topics and focuses on the applications. Readers should have some knowledge of linear algebra and have met groups and fields before, although all the essential facts and definitions are recalled. The coverage is comprehensive and includes topics such as:  Groups  lattices and categories  rings, modules and algebras  fields The author gives a clear account, supported by worked examples, with full proofs. There are numerous exercises with occasional hints, and some historical remarks

Free ideal rings and localization in general rings by
P. M Cohn(
Book
)
13 editions published between 2005 and 2006 in English and held by 198 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This book presents the theory of free ideal rings (firs) in detail. Particular emphasis in placed on rings with a weak algorithm, exemplified by free associative algebras. There is also a full account of localization, which is treated for general rings but the features arising in firs are given special attention. Each section has a number of exercises, including some open problems, and each chapter ends with a historical note."Jacket
