Book Description

Gathers and unifies the results of the theory of noncommutative semigroup rings, primarily drawing on the literature of the last 10 years, and including several new results. Okninski (Warsaw U., Poland) restricts coverage to the ring theoretical properties for which a systematic treatment is current
