This is Volume II of a two-volume introductory text in classical algebra. The text moves methodically with numerous examples and details so that readers with some basic knowledge of algebra can read it without difficulty. It is recommended either as a textbook for some particular algebraic topic or as a reference book for consultations in a selected fundamental branch of algebra. The book contains a wealth of material. Amongst the topics covered in Volume are the theory of ordered fields and Nullstellen Theorems. Known researcher Lorenz also includes the fundamentals of the theory of quadratic forms, of valuations, local fields and modules. What’s more, the book contains some lesser known or nontraditional results – for instance, Tsen's results on the solubility of systems of polynomial equations with a sufficiently large number of indeterminates.

This beautiful text transformed the graduate teaching of algebra in Europe and the United States. It clearly and succinctly formulated the conceptual and structural insights which Noether had expressed so forcefully and combined it with the elegance and understanding with which Artin had lectured. This second volume of the English translation of B.L. van der Waerden’s text Algebra is the first softcover printing of the original translation.

This book is an abridged draft edition. It is being published now in this form due to circumstances beyond the author's control. There will not be another edition. You will miss some things you might have expected: page numbers in the table of contents, a comprehensive bibliography and references, an index, a well-reviewed text .. . This book (Volume 2) follows on from Volume 1 so you may also need Volume 1 for reference. The book shows how the hypercomplex and associative algebras are hidden in Grassmann algebra. It shows how the quaternions and octonions and their split variants, and the geometric and Clifford algebras, are simply Grassmann algebra. It does this by extending its two familiar product operations, the exterior and interior products to define a suite of products together called the generalized Grassmann product. It shows how hypercomplex, geometric and Clifford products may then be defined as linear combinations of generalized Grassmann products in which the scalar coefficients are restricted to unity or negative unity only. This binary variability is sufficient to endow properties to a product operation, for example associativity. The book concludes by finding four associative product operations, two of which being the geometric and Clifford products. But these work on Grassmann entities only, so they are operations of the Grassmann algebra. In sum: this book shows how some important linear algebras such as the hypercomplex, geometric and Clifford algebras can be constructed entirely within Grassmann algebra by defining specialized product operations using only the exterior and interior products.

This second volume of our treatise on commutative algebra deals largely with three basic topics, which go beyond the more or less classical material of volume I and are on the whole of a more advanced nature and a more recent vintage. These topics are: (a) valuation theory; (b) theory of polynomial and power series rings (including generalizations to graded rings and modules); (c) local algebra. Because most of these topics have either their source or their best motivation in algebraic geom etry, the algebro-geometric connections and applications of the purely algebraic material are constantly stressed and abundantly scattered through out the exposition. Thus, this volume can be used in part as an introduc tion to some basic concepts and the arithmetic foundations of algebraic geometry. The reader who is not immediately concerned with geometric applications may omit the algebro-geometric material in a first reading (see" Instructions to the reader," page vii), but it is only fair to say that many a reader will find it more instructive to find out immediately what is the geometric motivation behind the purely algebraic material of this volume. The first 8 sections of Chapter VI (including § 5bis) deal directly with properties of places, rather than with those of the valuation associated with a place. These, therefore, are properties of valuations in which the value group of the valuation is not involved.

The Handbook of Categorical Algebra is designed to give, in three volumes, a detailed account of what should be known by everybody working in, or using, category theory. As such it will be a unique reference. The volumes are written in sequence. The second, which assumes familiarity with the material in the first, introduces important classes of categories that have played a fundamental role in the subject's development and applications. In addition, after several chapters discussing specific categories, the book develops all the major concepts concerning Benabou's ideas of fibred categories. There is ample material here for a graduate course in category theory, and the book should also serve as a reference for users.

The second text in this two-book series extends the classical material of Volume I, which focuses on field theory and the ideal theory of Noetherian rings and Dedekind domains. The connection of Volume II's material to algebraic geometry is stressed throughout the presentation, making this book a practical introduction to some basic concepts and the arithmetical foundations of algebraic geometry. The opening chapter deals with properties of places and is followed by a chapter that explores the classical properties of polynomial and power series rings and their applications to algebraic geometry. The final chapter examines the theory of local rings, which provides the algebraic basis for the local study of algebraic and analytical varieties. Several helpful Appendixes conclude the text.

Since mathematical principles have remained the same all throughout the world for centuries, Mathematics has been considered by many the “universal language of numbers”. For some, Mathematics causes anxiety or fear because it seems difficult to understand. One of the objectives of this eBook is to make the material more visually, technologically and multiculturally attrac- tive, with the aid of videos, pictures, games, animations and interactive exercises so that Mathemat-ics can become more interesting and accessible for today’s worldwide students since “evidence is mounting to support technology advocates’ claims that 21st-century information and communication tools, as well as more traditional computer-assisted instructional applications, can positively influence student learning processes and outcomes (Cradler, 2002)”. The role of mathematics in our modern world is crucial for today’s global communication and for a multitude of scientific and technological applications and advances.

This is the first book to link the mod 2 Steenrod algebra, a classical object of study in algebraic topology, with modular representations of matrix groups over the field F of two elements. The link is provided through a detailed study of Peterson's `hit problem' concerning the action of the Steenrod algebra on polynomials, which remains unsolved except in special cases. The topics range from decompositions of integers as sums of 'powers of 2 minus 1', to Hopf algebras and the Steinberg representation of GL(n, F). Volume 1 develops the structure of the Steenrod algebra from an algebraic viewpoint and can be used as a graduate-level textbook. Volume 2 broadens the discussion to include modular representations of matrix groups.
