The theory of local Chern characters used in commutative algebra originated in topology about thirty years ago, and from there was introduced in algebraic geometry. This book describes the theory in an algebraic setting, presenting recent research results and important algebraic applications, some of which come from the author's own work. It concentrates on the background in commutative algebra and homological algebra and describes the relations between these subjects, including extensive discussions of the homological conjectures and of the use of the Frobenius map. It will be particularly useful for graduate students and researchers.Read more

Reviews & endorsements
"This book will be of enormous value to algebraists who want to gain an understanding of the powerful techniques presented in [F] and how they can be applied to local algebra." Bulletin of the AMSSee more reviews
"The book covers a variety of interesting subjects in commutative algebra and makes an algebraic version of the intersection theory accessible to a wide audience. It contains many new points of view, and the presentation is easy to follow. This is an excellent book." Mathematical Reviews
