A valuable addition to the Lecture Notes in Pure and Applied Mathematics series, this reference results from a conference held in St. Petersburg, Russia, in honor of Dr. Z. Borevich. This volume is mainly devoted to the contributions related to the European Science Foundation workshop, organized under the framework of noncommuntative geometry and integrated in the Borevich meeting. The topics presented, including algebraic groups and representations, algebraic number theory, rings, and modules, are a timely distillation of recent work in the field. Featuring a wide range of international experts as contributors, this book is an ideal reference for mathematicians in algebra and algebraic geometry.
