#### Descent in Buildings (AM-190), Volume I

Princeton University Press 2015; US$ 75.00Descent in Buildings begins with the resolution of a major open question about the local structure of Bruhat-Tits buildings. The authors then put their algebraic solution into a geometric context by developing a general fixed point theory for groups acting on buildings of arbitrary type, giving necessary and sufficient conditions for the residues... more...

#### Elements of Algebraic Coding Systems

Momentum Press 2014; US$ 29.95Elements of Algebraic Coding Systems is an introductory text to algebraic coding theory. In the first chapter, you?ll gain inside knowledge of coding fundamentals, which is essential for a deeper understanding of state-of-the-art coding systems. This book is a quick reference for those who are unfamiliar with this topic, as well as for use with specific... more...

#### Elliptic Curves and Arithmetic Invariants

Springer New York 2013; US$ 129.00This introduction to Shimura varieties covers key topics including non-triviality of arithmetic invariants and special values of L-functions; elliptic curves over complex and p-adic fields; Hecke algebras; elliptic and modular curves over rings and more. more...

#### Elliptically Contoured Models in Statistics and Portfolio Theory

Springer New York 2013; US$ 129.00This fully revised, new edition of this classic text presents a comprehensive overview of elliptical contoured models and their applications to statistics. It provides a real-life case example of financial modeling from the Dow-Jones Stock Index. more...

#### Finite Permutation Groups

Elsevier Science 2014; US$ 31.95Finite Permutation Groups provides an introduction to the basic facts of both the theory of abstract finite groups and the theory of permutation groups. This book deals with older theorems on multiply transitive groups as well as on simply transitive groups. Organized into five chapters, this book begins with an overview of the fundamental concepts... more...

#### Generalizations of Steinberg Groups

World Scientific Publishing Company 1996; US$ 65.00The Steinberg relations are the commutator relations which hold between elementary matrices in a special linear group. This book generalizes these sorts of relations. To encode these relations one needs a ring and a so-called linkage graph which specifies exactly which commutator relations hold. The groups obtained here, called linkage groups, have... more...

#### Group Theory and Its Applications

Elsevier Science 2014; US$ 72.95Group Theory and its Applications, Volume II covers the two broad areas of applications of group theory, namely, all atomic and molecular phenomena, as well as all aspects of nuclear structure and elementary particle theory. This volume contains five chapters and begins with the representation and tensor operators of the unitary groups. The next chapter... more...
