Overview

The theory of idempotent matrices with entries in complex group algebras has recently experienced a revival, in view of its close relationship with deep geometric problems and conjectures. The relevant questions studied in this book for general groups are motivated by specific examples. A variety of techniques is employed from commutative algebra, homological algebra and functional analysis. The book can serve as an introduction to this lively research area. The pace is suitable for independent study and the level of the presentation not very demanding. The exercises at the end of each chapter form an essential part of the book.
