Algebra, Second Edition, by Michael Artin, provides
comprehensive coverage at the level of an honors-undergraduate or
introductory-graduate course. The second edition of this classic
text incorporates twenty years of feedback plus the author’s own
teaching experience. This book discusses concrete topics of
algebra in greater detail than others, preparing readers for the
more abstract concepts; linear algebra is tightly integrated... more...

Most topics in near-ring and near-field theory are treated here,
along with an extensive introduction to the theory. There are two
invited lectures: ``Non-Commutative Geometry, Near-Rings and
Near-Fields'' which indicates the relevance of near-rings and
near-fields for geometry, while ``Pseudo-Finite Near-Fields'' shows
the impressive power of model theoretic methods. The remaining
papers cover such topics as D.G. near-rings, radical theory,... more...

This volume is dedicated to Bill Helton on the occasion of his
sixty fifth birthday. It contains biographical material, a list of
Bill's publications, a detailed survey of Bill's contributions to
operator theory, optimization and control and 19 technical
articles. Most of the technical articles are expository and should
serve as useful introductions to many of the areas which Bill's
highly original contributions have helped to shape over the last
forty... more...

Integral transforms, such as the Laplace and Fourier transforms,
have been major tools in mathematics for at least two centuries. In
the last three decades the development of a number of novel ideas
in algebraic geometry, category theory, gauge theory, and string
theory has been closely related to generalizations of integral
transforms of a more geometric character. "Fourier–Mukai and Nahm
Transforms in Geometry and Mathematical Physics" examines... more...

Algebraic K-theory encodes important invariants for several
mathematical disciplines, spanning from geometric topology and
functional analysis to number theory and algebraic geometry. As is
commonly encountered, this powerful mathematical object is very
hard to calculate. Apart from Quillen's calculations of finite
fields and Suslin's calculation of algebraically closed fields, few
complete calculations were available before the discovery of... more...

Interest in commutative algebra has surged over the past decades.
In order to survey and highlight recent developments in this
rapidly expanding field, the Centre de Recerca Matematica in
Bellaterra organized a ten-days Summer School on Commutative
Algebra in 1996. Lectures were presented by six high-level
specialists, L. Avramov (Purdue), M.K. Green (UCLA), C. Huneke
(Purdue), P. Schenzel (Halle), G. Valla (Genova) and W.V.
Vasconcelos (Rutgers),... more...

Offering a uniquely modern, balanced approach,
Tussy/Gustafson/Koenig's BASIC MATHEMATICS FOR COLLEGE STUDENTS,
Fourth Edition, integrates the best of traditional drill and
practice with the best elements of the reform movement. To many
developmental math students, mathematics is like a foreign
language. They have difficulty translating the words, their
meanings, and how they apply to problem solving. Emphasizing the
"language of mathematics," the... more...

This market-leading text continues to provide students and
instructors with sound, consistently structured explanations of the
mathematical concepts. Designed for a one-term course that prepares
students for further study in mathematics, the new Eighth Edition
retains the features that have always made College Algebra a
complete solution for both students and instructors: interesting
applications, pedagogically effective design, and innovative... more...

This volume contains selected refereed papers based on lectures
presented at the ´;Fifth International Fez Conference on
Commutative Algebra and Applications´ that was held in Fez, Morocco
in June 2008. The volume represents new trends and areas of
classical research within the field, with contributions from many
different countries. In addition, the volume has as a special focus
the research and influence of Alain Bouvier on commutative algebra
over... more...
