About the Authors
  • This book contains selected papers from the international conference Groups - St Andrews 1985. Five leading group theorists - Bachmuth, Baumslag, Neuman, Roseblade and Tits - have presented survey articles based on short lecture courses given at the conference and the rest of the book comprises both survey and research articles contributed by other conference speakers. The many articles with their wealth of references demonstrate the richness and vitality of modern group theory and its many connections with other area of mathematics. The book will prove invaluable to both experienced researchers and new postgraduates whose interests involve group theory.
