Overview


This groundbreaking monograph in advanced algebra addresses crossed products. Author Donald S. Passman notes that crossed products have advanced from their first occurrence in finite dimensional division algebras and central simple algebras to a closer relationship with the study of infinite group algebras, group-graded rings, and the Galois theory of noncommutative rings.
Suitable for advanced undergraduates and graduate students of mathematics, the text examines crossed products and group-graded rings, delta methods and semiprime rings, the symmetric ring of quotients, and prime ideals, both in terms of finite and Noetherian cases. Additional topics include group actions and fixed rings, group actions and Galois theory, Grothendieck groups and induced modules, and zero divisors and idempotents.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Crossed products are another meeting place for group theory and ring theory. Historically, they first occurred in the study of finite dimensional division algebras and central simple algebras. More recently, they have become closely related to the study of infinite group algebras, group-graded rings, and the Galois theory of Noncommutative rings. This book is mainly concerned with these newer developments. Passman is in the Math Department, University of Wisconsin. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
