Polycyclic groups by
Daniel Segal(
Book
)
18 editions published between 1983 and 2005 in English and Undetermined and held by 402 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The theory of polycyclic groups is a branch of infinite group theory which has a rather different flavour from the rest of that subject. This book is a comprehensive account of the present state of this theory. As well as providing a connected and selfcontained account of the grouptheoretical background, it explains in detail how deep methods of number theory and algebraic group theory have been used to achieve some very recent and rather spectacular advances in the subject. Up to now, most of this material has only been available in scattered research journals, and some of it is new. This book is the only unified account of these developments, and will be of interest to mathematicians doing research in algebra, and to postgraduate students studying that subject

Subgroup growth by
Alexander Lubotzky(
Book
)
13 editions published between 2003 and 2004 in English and held by 270 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Subgroup growth studies the distribution of subgroups of finite index in a group as a function of the index. In the last two decades this topic has developed into one of the most active areas of research in infinite group theory; this book is a systematic and comprehensive account of the substantial theory which has emerged. As well as determining the range of possible "growth types", for finitely generated groups in general and for groups in particular classes such as linear groups, a main focus of the book is on the tight connection between the subgroup growth of a group and its algebraic structure. For example the socalled PSG Theorem, proved in Chapter 5, characterizes the groups of polynomial subgroup growth as those which are virtually soluble of finite rank. A key element in the proof is the growth of congruence subgroups in arithmetic groups, a new kind of "noncommutative arithmetic", with applications to the study of lattices in Lie groups. Another kind of noncommutative arithmetic arises with the introduction of subgroupcounting zeta functions; these fascinating and mysterious zeta functions have remarkable applications both to the "arithmetic of subgroup growth" and to the classification of finite pgroups. A wide range of mathematical disciplines play a significant role in this work: as well as various aspects of infinite group theory, these include finite simple groups and permutation groups, profinite groups, arithmetic groups and strong approximation, algebraic and analytic number theory, probability, and padic model theory. Relevant aspects of such topics are explained in selfcontained "windows", making the book accessible to a wide mathematical readership. The book concludes with over 60 challenging open problems that will stimulate further research in this rapidly growing subject

New horizons in prop groups by
Marcus Du Sautoy(
Book
)
13 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 246 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The impetus for current research in prop groups comes from four main directions: from new applications in number theory, which continue to be a source of deep and challenging problems; from the traditional problem of classifying finite pgroups; from questions arising in infinite group theory; and finally, from the younger subject of profinite group theory. A correspondingly diverse range of mathematical techniques is being successfully applied, leading to new results and pointing to exciting new directions of research. In this work important theoretical developments are carefully presented by leading mathematicians in the field, bringing the reader to the cutting edge of current research. With a systematic emphasis on the construction and examination of many classes of examples, the book presents a clear picture of the rich universe of prop groups, in its unity and diversity. Thirty open problems are discussed in the appendix. For graduate students and researchers in group theory, number theory, and algebra, this work will be an indispensable reference text and a rich source of promising avenues for further exploration

Lectures on profinite topics in group theory by
Benjamin Klopsch(
Book
)
11 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 173 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In this book, three authors introduce readers to strong approximation methods, analytic prop groups and zeta functions of groups. Each chapter illustrates connections between infinite group theory, number theory and Lie theory. The first introduces the theory of compact padic Lie groups. The second explains how methods from linear algebraic groups can be utilised to study the finite images of linear groups. The final chapter provides an overview of zeta functions associated to groups and rings. Derived from an LMS/EPSRC Short Course for graduate students, this book provides a concise introduction to a very active research area and assumes less prior knowledge than existing monographs or original research articles. Accessible to beginning graduate students in group theory, it will also appeal to researchers interested in infinite group theory and its interface with Lie theory and number theory

International crosslisting and the bonding hypothesis by
Michael R King(
Book
)
1 edition published in 2004 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The authors describe a new view of crosslisting that links the impact on firm valuation to the firm's ability to develop an active secondary market for its shares in the U.S. markets. Contrary to previous research, crosslisting may not provide benefits for all firms, even when those firms meet the highest regulatory requirements for disclosure and supervision. When crosslisted firms are divided into two groups on the basis of their share turnover in the home market relative to the U.S. market, the firms that develop active trading in the U.S. market experience an increase in valuation. Crosslisted firms that remain predominantly traded in the home market following crosslisting are valued similarly to noncrosslisted firms. To gain the full benefits of crosslisting, a foreign firm must convince investors that their shareholder rights will be protected. The effectiveness of this reputational bonding is witnessed in the ratio of trading on the U.S. market relative to the home market
