Rings, Modules, Algebras, and Abelian Groups summarizes the proceedings of a recent algebraic conference held at Venice International University in Italy. Surveying the most influential developments in the field, this reference reviews the latest research on Abelian groups, algebras and their representations, module and ring theory, and topological algebraic structures, and provides more than 600 current references and 570 display equations for further exploration of the topic. It provides stimulating discussions from world-renowned names including Laszlo Fuchs, Robert Gilmer, Saharon Shelah, Daniel Simson, and Richard Swan to celebrate 40 years of study on cumulative rings.
