Provides a comprehensive account of the major developments in this important branch of ring theory which have taken place over the past 30 years. Much of the material which comprises this volume has not appeared anywhere in book form before, and the authors have improved and simplified many of the accounts available in journals. The first few chapters form a ''basic course'' which introduces the reader to the subject. Subsequent chapters are each relatively self-contained, so that readers interested in a particular subject can easily consult the sections they want. Specific topics covered include rings arising from matrices, differential operators, and Lie algebras. Contains extensive references.
