Groups, rings and Galois theory by
Victor P Snaith(
Book
)
27 editions published between 1998 and 2006 in English and held by 352 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This book is ideally suited for a twoterm undergraduate algebra course culminating in a discussion on Galois theory. It provides an introduction to group theory and ring theory en route. In addition, there is a chapter on groups  including applications to errorcorrecting codes and to solving Rubik's cube. The concise style of the book will facilitate studentinstructor discussion, as will the selection of exercises with various levels of difficulty. For the second edition, two chapters on modules over principal ideal domains and Dedekind domains have been added which are suitable for an advanced undergraduate reading course or a firstyear graduate course."Jacket

Algebraic Kgroups as Galois modules by
Victor P Snaith(
Book
)
13 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 312 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Throughout number theory and arithmeticalgebraic geometry one encounters objects endowed with a natural action by a Galois group. In particular this applies to algebraic Kgroups and étale cohomology groups. This volume is concerned with the construction of algebraic invariants from such Galois actions

Explicit Brauer induction : with applications to algebra and number theory by
Victor P Snaith(
Book
)
18 editions published between 1994 and 2011 in English and held by 300 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Explicit Brauer Induction is an important technique in algebra, discovered by the author in 1986. It solves an old problem, giving a canonical formula for Brauer's induction theorem. In this 1994 book it is derived algebraically, following a method of R. Boltje  thereby making the technique, previously topological, accessible to algebraists. Once developed, the technique is used, by way of illustration, to reprove some important known results in new ways and to settle some outstanding problems. As with Brauer's original result, the canonical formula can be expected to have numerous applications and this book is designed to introduce research algebraists to its possibilities. For example, the technique gives an improved construction of the Oliver–Taylor groupring logarithm, which enables the author to study more effectively algebraic and numbertheoretic questions connected with classgroups of rings

Algebraic Ktheory : connections with geometry and topology by
J. F Jardine(
Book
)
13 editions published in 1989 in English and held by 235 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
A NATO Advanced Study Institute entitled "Algebraic Ktheory: Connections with Geometry and Topology" was held at the Chateau Lake Louise, Lake Louise, Alberta, Canada from December 7 to December 11 of 1987. This meeting was jointly supported by NATO and the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada, and was sponsored in part by the Canadian Mathematical Society. This book is the volume of proceedings for that meeting. Algebraic Ktheory is essentially the study of homotopy invariants arising from rings and their associated matrix groups. More importantly perhaps, the subject has become central to the study of the relationship between Topology, Algebraic Geometry and Number Theory. It draws on all of these fields as a subject in its own right, but it serves as well as an effective translator for the application of concepts from one field in another. The papers in this volume are representative of the current state of the subject. They are, for the most part, research papers which are primarily of interest to researchers in the field and to those aspiring to be such. There is a section on problems in this volume which should be of particular interest to students; it contains a discussion of the problems from Gersten's wellknown list of 1973, as well as a short list of new problems

Galois module structure by
Victor P Snaith(
Book
)
10 editions published in 1994 in English and Undetermined and held by 218 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Galois module structure deals with the construction of algebraic invariants from a Galois extension of number fields with group G. Typically these invariants lie in the classgroup of some groupring of G or of a related order. These classgroups have "Homdescriptions" in terms of idèlicvalued functions on the complex representations of G. Following a theme pioneered by A. Frölich, T. Chinburg constructed several invariants whose Homdescriptions are (conjecturally) given in terms of Artin root numbers. For a tame extension, the second Chinburg invariant is given by the ring of integers, and

Algebraic Ktheory by Great Lakes Conference on Algebraic KTheory(
Book
)
8 editions published between 1997 and 2012 in English and held by 173 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The conference proceedings volume is produced in connection with the second Great Lakes Ktheory Conference that was held at The Fields Institute for Research in Mathematical Sciences in March 1996. The volume is dedicated to the late Bob Thomason, one of the leading research mathematicians specializing in algebraic Ktheory. In addition to research papers treated directly in the lectures at the conference, this volume contains the following: i) several timely articles inspired by those lectures (particularly by that of V. Voevodsky), ii) an extensive exposition by Steve Mitchell of Thomason's famous result concerning the relationship between algebraic Ktheory and etale cohomology, iii) a definitive exposition by JL. ColliotThelene, R. Hoobler, and B

Higher algebraic Ktheory : an overview by
Emilio LluisPuebla(
)
5 editions published in 1992 in English and Undetermined and held by 50 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This book is a general introduction to Higher Algebraic Kgroups of rings and algebraic varieties, which were first defined by Quillen at the beginning of the 70's. These Kgroups happen to be useful in many different fields, including topology, algebraic geometry, algebra and number theory. The goal of this volume is to provide graduate students, teachers and researchers with basic definitions, concepts and results, and to give a sampling of current directions of research. Written by five specialists of different parts of the subject, each set of lectures reflects the particular perspective ofits author. As such, this volume can serve as a primer (if not as a technical basic textbook) for mathematicians from many different fields of interest
