Algebra II : noncommutative rings, identities by A. I Kostrikin( Book )

30 editions published in 1991 in English and Undetermined and held by 390 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The algebra of square matrices of size n ~ 2 over the field of complex numbers is, evidently, the best-known example of a non-commutative alge 1 bra - Subalgebras and subrings of this algebra (for example, the ring of n x n matrices with integral entries) arise naturally in many areas of mathemat ics. Historically however, the study of matrix algebras was preceded by the discovery of quatemions which, introduced in 1843 by Hamilton, found ap plications in the classical mechanics of the past century. Later it turned out that quaternion analysis had important applications in field theory. The al gebra of quaternions has become one of the classical mathematical objects; it is used, for instance, in algebra, geometry and topology. We will briefly focus on other examples of non-commutative rings and algebras which arise naturally in mathematics and in mathematical physics. The exterior algebra (or Grassmann algebra) is widely used in differential geometry - for example, in geometric theory of integration. Clifford algebras, which include exterior algebras as a special case, have applications in rep resentation theory and in algebraic topology. The Weyl algebra (Le. algebra of differential operators with· polynomial coefficients) often appears in the representation theory of Lie algebras. In recent years modules over the Weyl algebra and sheaves of such modules became the foundation of the so-called microlocal analysis. The theory of operator algebras (Le
Around Burnside by A. I Kostrikin( Book )

19 editions published between 1990 and 2014 in English and held by 383 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is a truly encyclopaedic survey of the various aspects of the "restricted Burnside problem" and its surprising applications. Among many other things, it contains a detailed positive solution of the restricted Burnside problem for prime exponent, via Engel Lie algebras and so-called sandwiches. A new appendix to this translation contains a proof by E.I. Zel'manov of the existence of a recursive upper bound for the nilpotency class of a d-generator finite group of prime exponent p. Informative and illustrative comments grace the end of each chapter, and there is an extensive bibliography

Algebra VI : combinatorial and asymptotic methods of algebra : non-associative structures by A. I Kostrikin( Book )

19 editions published between 1990 and 2011 in English and held by 311 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Methods of homological algebra by S. I Gelʹfand( Book )

24 editions published between 1990 and 1999 in English and held by 289 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Homological algebra first arose as a language for describing topological prospects of geometrical objects. As with every successful language it quickly expanded its coverage and semantics, and its contemporary applications are many and diverse. This modern approach to homological algebra, by two leading writers in the field, is based on the systematic use of the language and ideas of derived categories and derived functors. Relations with standard cohomology theory (sheaf cohomology, spectral sequences, etc.) are described. In most cases complete proofs are given. Basic concepts and results of homotopical algebra are also presented. The book addresses people who want to learn a modern approach to homological algebra and to use it in their work. For the second edition the authors have made numerous corrections

From the reviews of the first printing of this book, published as volume 58 of the Encyclopaedia of Mathematical Sciences: " ... This book will be very useful as a reference and guide to researchers and graduate students in algebra and and topology." Acta Scientiarum Mathematicarum, Ungarn, 1994 " ... The book under review consists of two monographs on geometric aspects of group theory: Combinatorial group theory and fundamental groups" by D.J. Collins and H. Zieschang ... : "Some problems of group theory related to geometry" by R.I. Grigorchuk and P.F. Kurchanov. ... Together, these two articles form a wide-ranging survey of combinatorial group theory, with emphasis very much on the geometric roots of the subject. This will be a useful reference work for the expert, as well as providing an overview of the subject for the outsider or novice. Many different topics are described and explored, with the main results presented but not proved. This allows the interested reader to get the flavour of these topics without becoming bogged down in detail. Both articles give comprehensive bibliographies, so that it is possible to use this book as the starting point for a more detailed study of a particular topic of interest. ... In summary, a very interesting book! Bulletin of the London Mathematical Society, 1996 " ... In both essays the authors give clear and comprehensive definitions, examples and statements (but not proofs) of theorems, so that the book can be understood by a reader with a minimal background in group theory or geometry. Such a reader, needing to find out what is known in this area, will find this a full and accessible store of information." Contemporary Physics, 1994 " ... This survey (Part II) presents for the first time that problems in monograph form and by the way offers a unifying treatment of the various approaches to their solutions, as far as they are known, together with hints to open problems. A titbit for every interested reader!" Monatshefte fr Mathematik, 1995
