Algebra I : basic notions of algebra by
I. R Shafarevich(
Book
)
20 editions published between 1989 and 2014 in English and held by 566 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
From the reviews: "This is one of the few mathematical books, the reviewer has read from cover to cover ... The main merit is that nearly on every page you will find some unexpected insights..." Zentralblatt für Mathematik und Ihre Grenzgebiete, 1991 "...which I read like a novel and undoubtedly will become a classic. ... A merit of the book under review is that it contains several important articles from journals which are not all so easily accessible. ... Furthermore, at the end of the book, there are some Notes by the author which are indispensible for the necessary historical background information. ... This valuable book should be on the shelf of every algebraist and algebraic geometer." Nieuw Archief voor Wiskunde, 1992 "... There are few proofs in full, but there is an exhilarating combination of sureness of foot and lightness of touch in the exposition ... which transports the reader effortlessly across the whole spectrum of algebra.... The challenge to Ezekiel, "Can these bones live?" is, all too often, the reaction of students when introduced to the bare bones of the concepts and constructs of modern algebra. Shafarevich's book  which reads as comfortably as an extended essay  breathes life into the skeleton and will be of interest to many classes of readers..." The Mathematical Gazette, 1991 "... According to the preface, the book is addressed to "students of mathematics in the first years of an undergraduate course, or theoretical physicists or mathematicians from outside algebra wanting to get an impression of the spirit of algebra and its place in mathematics." I think that this promise is fully justified. The beginner, the experts and also the interested scientist who had contact with algebraic notions  all will read this exceptional book with great pleasure and benefit."

Around Burnside by
A. I Kostrikin(
Book
)
21 editions published between 1986 and 2014 in 3 languages and held by 384 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This is a truly encyclopaedic survey of the various aspects of the "restricted Burnside problem" and its surprising applications. Among many other things, it contains a detailed positive solution of the restricted Burnside problem for prime exponent, via Engel Lie algebras and socalled sandwiches. A new appendix to this translation contains a proof by E.I. Zel'manov of the existence of a recursive upper bound for the nilpotency class of a dgenerator finite group of prime exponent p. Informative and illustrative comments grace the end of each chapter, and there is an extensive bibliography

Algebra IV : infinite groups, linear groups : with 9 figures by
A. I Kostrikin(
Book
)
13 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 265 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Group theory is one of the most fundamental branches of mathematics. This volume of the Encyclopaedia is devoted to two important subjects within group theory. The first part of the book is concerned with infinite groups. The authors deal with combinatorial group theory, free constructions through group actions on trees, algorithmic problems, periodic groups and the Burnside problem, and the structure theory for Abelian, soluble and nilpotent groups. They have included the very latest developments; however, the material is accessible to readers familiar with the basic concepts of algebra. The second part treats the theory of linear groups. It is a genuinely encyclopaedic survey written for nonspecialists. The topics covered includethe classical groups, algebraic groups, topological methods, conjugacy theorems, and finite linear groups. This book will be very useful to allmathematicians, physicists and other scientists including graduate students who use group theory in their work

Algebra IX : finite groups of Lie type, finitedimensional division algebras by
A. I Kostrikin(
Book
)
6 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 179 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The finite groups of Lie type are of central mathematical importance and the problem of understanding their irreducible representations is of great interest. The representation theory of these groups over an algebraically closed field of characteristic zero was developed by P. Deligne and G. Lusztig in 1976 and subsequently in a series of papers by Lusztig culminating in his book in 1984. The purpose of the first part of this book is to give an overview of the subject, without including detailed proofs. The second part is a survey of the structure of finitedimensional division algebras with many outline proofs, giving the basic theory and methods of construction and then goes on to a deeper analysis of division algebras over valuated fields. An account of the multiplicative structure and reduced Ktheory presents recent work on the subject, including that of the authors. Thus it forms a convenient and very readable introduction to a field which in the last two decades has seen much progress

Combinatorial group theory and applications to geometry by D.J Collins(
Book
)
2 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 18 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
From the reviews of the first printing of this book, published as volume 58 of the Encyclopaedia of Mathematical Sciences: "... This book will be very useful as a reference and guide to researchers and graduate students in algebra and and topology." Acta Scientiarum Mathematicarum, Ungarn, 1994 "... The book under review consists of two monographs on geometric aspects of group theory: Combinatorial group theory and fundamental groups" by D.J.Collins and H.Zieschang ...: "Some problems of group theory related to geometry" by R.I.Grigorchuk and P.F.Kurchanov. ... Together, these two articles form a wideranging survey of combinatorial group theory, with emphasis very much on the geometric roots of the subject. This will be a useful reference work for the expert, as well as providing an overview of the subject for the outsider or novice. Many different topics are described and explored, with the main results presented but not proved. This allows the interested reader to get the flavour of these topics without becoming bogged down in detail. Both articles give comprehensive bibliographies, so that it is possible to use this book as the starting point for a more detailed study of a particular topic of interest. ... In summary, a very interesting book! Bulletin of the London Mathematical Society, 1996 "... In both essays the authors give clear and comprehensive definitions, examples and statements (but not proofs) of theorems, so that the book can be understood by a reader with a minimal background in group theory or geometry. Such a reader, needing to find out what is known in this area, will find this a full and accessible store of information." Contemporary Physics, 1994 "...This survey (Part II) presents for the first time that problems in monograph form and by the way offers a unifying treatment of the various approaches to their solutions, as far as they are known, together with hints to open problems. A titbit for every interested reader!" Monatshefte fr Mathematik, 1995
