The purpose of this book is to provide a concise yet detailed account of fundamental concepts in modern algebra. The target audience for this book is first-year graduate students in mathematics, though the first two chapters are probably accessible to well-prepared undergraduates. The book covers a broad range of topics in modern algebra and includes chapters on groups, rings, modules, algebraic extension fields, and finite fields. Each chapter begins with an overview which provides a road map for the reader showing what material will be covered. At the end of each chapter we collect exercises which review and reinforce the material in the corresponding sections. These exercises range from straightforward applications of the material to problems designed to challenge the reader. We also include a list of "Questions for Further Study" which pose problems suitable for master's degree research projects.

The theory of quantum mechanical measuring process has been a subject of increasing research interest during recent years. The revival of interest in it was encouraged during the 1980's due to the advances on the formal and conceptual structures of quantum mechanics, accompanied with new experimental possibilities and technological demands, as well as due to new ideas on the interpretation of the theory. This proceedings is devoted to reviewing the present situation on quantum measurement theory and discussing the related philosophical implications.

Designed to offer undergraduate mathematics majors insights into the main themes of abstract algebra, this text contains ample material for a two-semester course. Its extensive coverage includes set theory, groups, rings, modules, vector spaces, and fields. Loaded with examples, definitions, theorems, and proofs, it also features numerous practice exercises at the end of each section. Beginning with sets, relations, and functions, the text proceeds to an examination of all types of groups, including cyclic groups, subgroups, permutation groups, normal subgroups, homomorphism, factor groups, and fundamental theorems. Additional topics include subfields, extensions, prime fields, separable extensions, fundamentals of Galois theory, and other subjects.

Advanced algebra in the service of contemporary mathematicalresearch-- a unique introduction. This volume takes an altogether new approach to advanced algebra.Its intriguing title, inspired by the term postmodernism, denotes adeparture from van der Waerden's Modern Algebra--a book that hasdominated the field for nearly seventy years. Post-Modern Algebraoffers a truly up-to-date alternative to the standard approach,explaining topics from an applications-based perspective ratherthan by abstract principles alone. The book broadens the field ofstudy to include algebraic structures and methods used in currentand emerging mathematical research, and describes the powerful yetsubtle techniques of universal algebra and category theory.Classical algebraic areas of groups, rings, fields, and vectorspaces are bolstered by such topics as ordered sets, monoids,monoid actions, quasigroups, loops, lattices, Boolean algebras,categories, and Heyting algebras. The text features: * A clear and concise treatment at an introductory level, tested inuniversity courses. * A wealth of exercises illustrating concepts and their practicalapplication. * Effective techniques for solving research problems in the realworld. * Flexibility of presentation, making it easy to tailor material tospecific needs. * Help with elementary proofs and algebraic notations for studentsof varying abilities. Post-Modern Algebra is an excellent primary or supplementary textfor graduate-level algebra courses. It is also an extremely usefulresource for professionals and researchers in many areas who musttackle abstract, linear, or universal algebra in the course oftheir work.
