The landscape of homological algebra has evolved over the past half-century into a fundamental tool for the working mathematician. This book provides a unified account of homological algebra as it exists today. The historical connection with topology, regular local rings, and semi-simple Lie algebras is also described. The first half of the book takes as its subject the canonical topics in homological algebra: derived functors, Tor and Ext, projective dimensions and spectral sequences. Homology of group and Lie algebras illustrate these topics. Intermingled are less canonical topics, such as the derived inverse limit functor lim1, local cohomology, Galois cohomology, and affine Lie algebras. The last part of the book covers less traditional topics that are a vital part of the modern homological toolkit: simplicial methods, Hochschild and cyclic homology, derived categories and total derived functors.Read more

"It is...the ideal text for the working mathematician need- ing a detailed description of the fundamentals of the subject as it exists and is used today; the author has succeeded brilliantly in his avowed intention to break down 'the technological barriers between casual users and experts'." Kenneth A. Brown, Mathematical ReviewsSee more reviews
"By collecting, organizing, and presenting both the old and the new in homological algebra, Weibel has performed a valuable service. He has written a book that I am happy to have in my library." Joseph Rotman, Bulletin of the American Mathematical Society
