A survey of modern algebra by
Garrett Birkhoff(
Book
)
187 editions published between 1941 and 2010 in 5 languages and held by 2,736 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This classic text introduces abstract algebra using familiar and concrete examples that illustrate each concept as it is presented. It covers such topics as the role of careful proof in algebra; linear algebra as grounded in geometry; groups as expressions of symmetry; subgroups and subsystems leading to lattice theory; and much more"Cover

Algebra by
Serge Lang(
Book
)
103 editions published between 1967 and 1999 in 6 languages and held by 1,919 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This book is intended as a basic text for a oneyear course in Algebra at the graduate level, or as a useful reference for mathematicians and professionals who use higherlevel algebra. It successfully addresses the basic concepts of algebra. For the revised third edition, the author has added exercises and made numerous corrections to the text. Comments on Serge Lang's Algebra: Lang's Algebra changed the way graduate algebra is taught, retaining classical topics but introducing language and ways of thinking from category theory and homological algebra. It has affected all subsequent graduatelevel algebra books. April 1999 Notices of the AMS, announcing that the author was awarded the Leroy P. Steele Prize for Mathematical Exposition for his many mathematics books. The author has an impressive knack for presenting the important and interesting ideas of algebra in just the "right" way, and he never gets bogged down in the dry formalism which pervades some parts of algebra. MathSciNet's review of the first edition

Transport theory by Symposium in applied mathematics of the american mathematical society and the society for industrial and applied mathematics(
Book
)
15 editions published in 1969 in English and Undetermined and held by 364 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The volume is a collection of the methods and results of a number of experts in the field of transport theory. There are four main parts: analytical Neutron Transport; Numerical Neutron Transport; Stochastic Aspects; Kinetic Theory and Plasma Transport. Each part contains four expository accounts of recent developments. These papers provide an excellent and comprehensive survey of the current state of transport theory and should serve as a stimulus for research in this field
