Abelian Groups (Springer Monographs in Mathematics) by László Fuchs

By László Fuchs

Written through one of many subject’s best specialists, this ebook makes a speciality of the valuable advancements and smooth tools of the complex thought of abelian teams, whereas closing available, as an creation and reference, to the non-specialist. It presents a coherent resource for effects scattered through the learn literature with plenty of new proofs.

The presentation highlights significant traits that experience substantially replaced the fashionable personality of the topic, particularly, using homological equipment within the constitution concept of varied sessions of abelian teams, and using complicated set-theoretical tools within the research of un decidability difficulties. The remedy of the latter development comprises Shelah’s seminal paintings at the un decidability in ZFC of Whitehead’s challenge; whereas the therapy of the previous pattern contains an in depth (but non-exhaustive) examine of p-groups, torsion-free teams, combined teams and significant sessions of teams bobbing up from ring idea. to organize the reader to take on those issues, the publication stories the basics of abelian crew concept and offers a few heritage fabric from type conception, set concept, topology and homological algebra.

An abundance of routines are incorporated to check the reader’s comprehension, and to discover noteworthy extensions and similar sidelines of the most issues. a listing of open difficulties and questions, in each one bankruptcy, invite the reader to take an energetic half within the subject’s additional development.
