## Advanced Modern Algebra: Third Edition, Part 2

### By Joseph J. Rotman

Currently unavailable

This is the second part of the new edition of Advanced Modern Algebra. The material has been significantly reorganised and sections have been rewritten. The book presents many topics mentioned in the first part in greater depth and in more detail. The five chapters of the book are devoted to...

## Central Simple Algebras and Galois Cohomology

### By Tamas Szamuely

Currently unavailable

The first comprehensive, modern introduction to a central field in modern algebra with connections to algebraic geometry, K-theory, and number theory. It proceeds from the basics to more advanced results, including the Merkurjev-Suslin theorem. It is ideal as a text for a graduate course and as a reference for researchers.

## From Groups to Categorial Algebra: Introduction to Protomodular and Mal\'tsev Categories

### By Dominique Bourn

Currently unavailable

This book gives a thorough and entirely self-contained, in-depth introduction to a specific approach to group theory, in a large sense of that word. The focus lie on the relationships which a group may have with other groups, via "universal properties", a view on that group "from the outside". This...

## Foundations of Quantum Theory

### By Klaas Landsman

Currently unavailable

This book studies the foundations of quantum theory through its relationship to classical physics. This idea goes back to the Copenhagen Interpretation in the original version due to Bohr and Heisenberg, which the author relates to the mathematical formalism of operator algebras originally created by von Neumann. The book therefore...

## Groups, Languages and Automata

### By Derek F. Holt

Currently unavailable

Many connections exist between group theory and automata theory, and a wide variety of them are discussed in this text. Any necessary background material is provided, and connections are explored along a number of strands that lead to the forefront of current research in geometric group theory.

## Intermediate Algebra

### By Marvin L. Bittinger

Currently unavailable

For courses in Intermediate Algebra. Understanding and Applying Mathematical Concepts The goal of the Bittinger Concepts and Applications Series is to help today's student learn and retain mathematical concepts. This proven program prepares students for the transition from skills-oriented elementary algebra courses to more concept-oriented college-level mathematics courses. This requires...

## Elementary Linear Algebra, International Metric Edition

Currently unavailable

ELEMENTARY LINEAR ALGEBRA, 8E, INTERNATIONAL METRIC EDITION's clear, careful, and concise presentation of material helps you fully understand how mathematics works. The author balances theory with examples, applications, and geometric intuition for a complete, step-by-step learning system. To engage you in the material, a new design highlights the relevance of...

## An Introduction to the Language of Category Theory

### By Steven Roman

Currently unavailable

The first chapter of the book introduces the definitions of category and functor and discusses diagrams,duality, initial and terminal objects, special types of morphisms, and some special types of categories,particularly comma categories and hom-set categories.

## Generalized Framework of Linear Multivariable Control

### By Liansheng Tan

Currently unavailable

A Generalized Framework of Linear Multivariable Control proposes a number of generalized models by using the generalized inverse of matrix, while the usual linear multivariable control theory relies on some regular models. The book supports that in H-infinity control, the linear fractional transformation formulation is relying on the inverse of...

## Algebra for Cryptologists

### By Alko R. Meijer

Currently unavailable

This textbook provides an introduction to the mathematics on which modern cryptology is based. It covers not only public key cryptography, the glamorous component of modern cryptology, but also pays considerable attention to secret key cryptography, its workhorse in practice. Modern cryptology has been described as the science of the...
