# Galois Theory by Stewart I. A. (Ed)

By Stewart I. A. (Ed)

A textbook for upper-level undergraduate scholars of arithmetic, first released in 1972 and revised in 1988. The 3rd version is revised to account for adjustments, now not within the arithmetic, yet in undergraduate schooling, and so starts off with polynomials over the complicated numbers, and explains whilst such polynomials have options that may be expressed by means of radicals.

Representations of Groups: A Computational Approach

The illustration idea of finite teams has obvious swift development lately with the advance of effective algorithms and laptop algebra platforms. this is often the 1st booklet to supply an advent to the standard and modular illustration conception of finite teams with distinctive emphasis at the computational points of the topic.

Groups of Prime Power Order Volume 2 (De Gruyter Expositions in Mathematics)

This can be the second one of 3 volumes dedicated to straightforward finite p-group concept. just like the 1st quantity, 1000's of vital effects are analyzed and, in lots of instances, simplified. vital themes offered during this monograph comprise: (a) type of p-groups all of whose cyclic subgroups of composite orders are general, (b) category of 2-groups with precisely 3 involutions, (c) proofs of Ward's theorem on quaternion-free teams, (d) 2-groups with small centralizers of an involution, (e) type of 2-groups with precisely 4 cyclic subgroups of order 2n > 2, (f) new proofs of Blackburn's theorem on minimum nonmetacyclic teams, (g) category of p-groups all of whose subgroups of index pÂ² are abelian, (h) category of 2-groups all of whose minimum nonabelian subgroups have order eight, (i) p-groups with cyclic subgroups of index pÂ² are categorized.

Group Representations, Ergodic Theory, and Mathematical Physics: A Tribute to George W. Mackey

George Mackey was once a unprecedented mathematician of serious strength and imaginative and prescient. His profound contributions to illustration idea, harmonic research, ergodic concept, and mathematical physics left a wealthy legacy for researchers that keeps at the present time. This booklet relies on lectures offered at an AMS unique consultation held in January 2007 in New Orleans devoted to his reminiscence.
