Cohomology of finite groups
by
Alejandro Adem(
Book
)
24 editions published between 1994 and 2010 in 3 languages and held by 597 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The cohomology of groups has, since its beginnings in the 1920s and 1930s, been the stage for significant interaction between algebra and topology and has led to the creation of important new fields in mathematics, like homological algebra and algebraic Ktheory. This is the first book to deal comprehensively with the cohomology of finite groups: it introduces the most important and useful algebraic and topological techniques, describing the interplay of the subject with those of homotopy theory, representation theory and group actions. The combination of theory and examples, together with the techniques for computing the cohomology of various important classes of groups, and several of the sporadic simple groups, enables readers to acquire an indepth understanding of group cohomology and its extensive applications. The 2nd edition contains many more mod 2 cohomology calculations for the sporadic simple groups, obtained by the authors and with their collaborators over the past decade.Chapter III on group cohomology and invariant theory has been revised and expanded. New references arising from recent developments in the field have been added, and the index substantially enlarged

Homotopy theory and its applications : a conference on algebraic topology in honor of Samuel Gitler, August 913, 1993, Cocoyoc, Mexico
by Conference on Algebraic Topology in Honor of Samuel Gitler(
Book
)
12 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 242 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This book is the result of a conference held to examine developments in homotopy theory in honor of Samuel Gitler in August 1993 (Cocoyoc, Mexico). It includes several research papers and three expository papers on various topics in homotopy theory. The research papers discuss the following: application of homotopy theory to group theory, fiber bundle theory, and homotopy theory. The expository papers consider the following topics: the AtiyahJones conjecture (by C. Boyer), classifying spaces of finite groups (by J. Martino), and instanton moduli spaces (by R.J. Milgram). Homotopy Theory and Its Applications offers a distinctive account of how homotopytheoretic methods can be applied to a variety of interesting problems
