Based on invited lectures at the 1992 Canadian Algebra Seminar, this volume represents an up-to-date and unique report on finite-dimensional algebras as a subject with many serious interactions with other mathematical disciplines, including algebraic groups and Lie theory, automorphic forms, sheaf theory, finite groups, and homological algebra. It will interest mathematicians and graduate students in these and related subjects as an introduction to research in an area of increasing relevance and importance.

Editorial Reviews

The proceedings of an August 1992 workshop in Ottawa, Canada, devoted to the intersection of finite dimensional algebras with Lie theory and other areas of mathematics such as algebraic geometry, automorphic forms, and mathematical physics. Among the topics of the 19 presentations are equivalences of blocks of group algebras, blocks with cyclic defect, and rigid and exceptional sheaves on a Delpezzo surface. Reproduced typescripts. No index. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (
