Overview

This is an English translation of the now classic "Alg&bre Locale - Mu s" originally published by Springer as LNM 11, in several ed itions since 1965. It gives a short account of the main theorems of co mmutative algebra, with emphasis on modules, homological methods and i ntersection multiplicities ("Tor-formula"). Many modifications to the original French text have been made by the author for this English edi tion: They make the text easier to read, without changing its intended informal character.
