About the Authors
  • This introduction to noncommutative noetherian rings, accessible to anyone with a basic background in abstract algebra, can be used as a second-year graduate text, or as a self-contained reference. Extensive explanatory material is given, and exercises are integrated throughout. New material includes the basic types of quantum groups.

    • Sketches of typical classes of application for motivation
    • Extensive explanatory discussion
    • Exercises integrated throughout the text

    Reviews & endorsements

    "Readers of the first edition will notice a number of changes in this edition, including a restrucuring of the topics, many more explicit examples, and an increased emphasis on quantum groups, a subject which has flourished in the decade that has passed since the first edition...This level of explicitness would make large parts of the book accessible even to an undergraduate who has only completed a first course in algebra, although the target audience is primarily at the graduate student level."
    MAA Reviews, Darren Glass
