#### Dualisability

Springer-Verlag New York Inc 2006; US$ 169.00Natural duality theory is one of the major growth areas within general algebra. This text provides a short path to the forefront of research in duality theory. It presents a coherent approach to new results in the area, as well as exposing open problems. Unary algebras play a special role throughout the text. Individual unary algebras are relatively... more...

#### Field Arithmetic

Springer-Verlag Berlin and Heidelberg GmbH & Co. KG 2006; US$ 159.00Field Arithmetic explores Diophantine fields through their absolute Galois groups. This largely self-contained treatment starts with techniques from algebraic geometry, number theory, and profinite groups. Graduate students can effectively learn generalizations of finite field ideas. We use Haar measure on the absolute Galois group to replace counting... more...

#### The Brauer-Hasse-Noether Theorem in Historical Perspective

Springer-Verlag Berlin and Heidelberg GmbH & Co. KG 2006; US$ 39.99The unpublished writings of Helmut Hasse, consisting of letters, manuscripts and other papers, are kept at the Handschriftenabteilung of the University Library at Gottingen. Hasse had an extensive correspondence; he liked to exchange mathematical ideas, results and methods freely with his colleagues. There are more than 8000 documents preserved. Although... more...

#### Trends and Applications in Constructive Approximation

Springer 2006; US$ 189.00This volume contains contributions from international experts in the fields of constructive approximation. This area has reached out to encompass the computational and approximation-theoretical aspects of various interesting fields in applied mathematics such as (multivariate) approximation methods, quasi-interpolation,and approximation by (orthogonal)... more...

#### Contemporary Cryptology

Springer 2006; US$ 59.95Treats selected topics of the subject of contemporary cryptology, structured in five quite independent but related themes: efficient distributed computation modulo a shared secret, multiparty computation, foundations of modern cryptography, provable security for public key schemes, and efficient and secure public-key cryptosystems. more...

#### Studies in Lie Theory

Springer 2006; US$ 199.00Dedicated to Anthony Joseph, this volume contains surveys and invited articles by leading specialists in representation theory. The focus here is on semisimple Lie algebras and quantum groups, where the impact of Joseph's work has been seminal and has changed the face of the subject. Two introductory biographical overviews of Joseph's contributions... more...

#### Set Theory

Springer 2006; US$ 169.00Contains survey papers on some of the mainstream areas of set theory and research. This book covers topics such as Omega-logic, applications of set theory to lattice theory and Boolean algebras, real-valued measurable cardinals, complexity of sets and relations in continuum theory, weak subsystems of axiomatic set theory, and more. more...

#### Alternative Loop Rings

Elsevier Science 1996; US$ 215.00For the past ten years, alternative loop rings have intrigued mathematicians from a wide cross-section of modern algebra. As a consequence, the theory of alternative loop rings has grown tremendously. One of the main developments is the complete characterization of loops which have an alternative but not associative, loop ring. Furthermore, there is... more...

#### Cyclotomic Fields and Zeta Values

Springer 2006; US$ 64.95Cyclotomic fields have occupied a central place in number theory, and the so called "main conjecture" on cyclotomic fields is arguably the deepest theorem known about them. This work presents the proof of the "main conjecture'' for cyclotomic fields. It is useful to both graduate students and non-experts in Iwasawa theory. more...

#### Noetherian Semigroup Algebras

Springer 2007; US$ 119.00Within the last decade, semigroup theoretical methods have occurred naturally in many aspects of ring theory, algebraic combinatorics, representation theory and their applications. In particular, motivated by noncommutative geometry and the theory of quantum groups, there is a growing interest in the class of semigroup algebras and their deformations.... more...
