Whitehead Groups of Finite Groups (London Mathematical by Robert Oliver

By Robert Oliver

This book's target is to make available recommendations for learning Whitehead teams of finite teams, in addition to a number of comparable themes reminiscent of induction conception and p-adic logarithms. the writer has integrated a long creation to set the scene for non-specialists who wish an summary of the sphere, its historical past and its purposes. the remainder of the booklet comprises 3 elements: basic conception, team earrings of p-groups and common finite teams. The booklet can be welcomed by means of experts in okay- and L-theory and via algebraists mostly as a state-of-the paintings survey of the area.

Lie Groups and Lie Algebras for Physicists

The e-book is meant for graduate scholars of theoretical physics (with a history in quantum mechanics) in addition to researchers attracted to functions of Lie workforce idea and Lie algebras in physics. The emphasis is at the inter-relations of illustration theories of Lie teams and the corresponding Lie algebras.

Finite Fields (Encyclopedia of Mathematics and its Applications)

The idea of finite fields is a department of algebra that has come to the fore as a result of its diversified purposes in such parts as combinatorics, coding thought and the mathematical learn of switching ciruits. This booklet is dedicated completely to the speculation of finite fields, and it offers complete insurance of the literature.

Stable Groups (London Mathematical Society Lecture Note Series)

The examine of solid teams connects version concept, algebraic geometry and crew conception. It analyses teams which own a definite very common dependence relation (Shelah's proposal of 'forking'), and attempts to derive structural houses from this. those could be group-theoretic (nilpotency or solubility of a given group), algebro-geometric (identification of a bunch as an algebraic group), or model-theoretic (description of the definable sets).
