Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Fourteen papers report the advances over the past decade (but not available in book form) in algebras introduced to describe the quantum mechanical formalism in algebraic terms, and now grown to application in real and complex analysis, Lie algebras and algebraic groups, geometry, and physics. Among the topics are finite conditions in Jordan pairs, algebraic systems in differential geometry, and linear groups and Lie algebras over arbitrary rings. No index. Annotation c.
