Affine sets and affine groups by
D. G Northcott(
Book
)
21 editions published in 1980 in English and Italian and held by 429 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In these notes, first published in 1980, Professor Northcott provides a selfcontained introduction to the theory of affine algebraic groups for mathematicians with a basic knowledge of communicative algebra and field theory. The book divides into two parts. The first four chapters contain all the geometry needed for the second half of the book which deals with affine groups. Alternatively the first part provides a sure introduction to the foundations of algebraic geometry. Any affine group has an associated Lie algebra. In the last two chapters, the author studies these algebras and shows how, in certain important cases, their properties can be transferred back to the groups from which they arose. These notes provide a clear and carefully written introduction to algebraic geometry and algebraic groups

Multilinear algebra by
D. G Northcott(
Book
)
23 editions published between 1984 and 2010 in English and Undetermined and held by 402 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Multilinear algebra has important applications in many different areas of mathematics but is usually learned in a rather haphazard fashion. The aim of this book is to provide a readable and systematic account of multilinear algebra at a level suitable for graduate students. Professor Northcott gives a thorough treatment of topics such as tensor, exterior, Grassmann, Hopf and coalgebras and ends each chapter with a section entitled 'Comments and Exercises'. The comments contain convenient summaries and discussion of the content whilst the exercises provide an opportunity to test understanding and add extra material. Complete solutions are provided for those exercises that are particularly important or used later in the book. The volume as a whole is based on advanced lectures given by the author at the University of Sheffield

An introduction to homological algebra by
Joseph J Rotman(
Book
)
in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"With a wealth of examples as well as abundant applications to Algebra, this is a mustread work: a clearly written, easytofollow guide to Homological Algebra. The author provides a treatment of Homological Algebra which approaches the subject in terms 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." "Learning Homological Algebra is a twostage affair. Firstly, one must learn the language of Ext and Tor, and what this describes. Secondly, one must be able to compute these things using a separate language: that of spectral sequences. The basic properties of spectral sequences are developed using exact couples. All is done in the context of bicomplexes, for almost all applications of spectral sequences involve indices. Applications include Grothendieck spectral sequences, change of rings, LyndonHochschildSerre sequence, and theorems of Leray and Cartan computing sheaf cohomology."Jacket
