Cohomology of finite groups by Alejandro Adem( Book )

25 editions published between 1994 and 2010 in 3 languages and held by 563 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 K-theory. 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, and describes 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 important classes of groups including symmetric groups, alternating groups, finite groups of Lie type, and some of the sporadic simple groups, enable readers to acquire an in-depth understanding of group cohomology and its extensive applications

Homotopy theory and its applications : a conference on algebraic topology in honor of Samuel Gitler, August 9-13, 1993, Cocoyoc, Mexico by Conference on algebraic topology in honor of Samuel Gitler( Book )

13 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 217 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 Atiyah-Jones 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 homotopy-theoretic methods can be applied to a variety of interesting problems
