About the Authors
  • This book on modern module and non-commutative ring theory starts at the foundations of the subject and progresses rapidly through the basic concepts to help the reader reach current research frontiers. The first half of the book is concerned with free, projective, and injective modules, tensor algebras, simple modules and primitive rings, the Jacobson radical, and subdirect products. Later in the book, more advanced topics, such as hereditary rings, categories and functors, flat modules, and purity are introduced. These later chapters will also prove a useful reference for researchers in non-commutative ring theory.

    • Wide coverage, suitable for a standard introductory course worldwide
    • Easily readable, no gaps in proofs
    • Includes topics of interest to the professional specialist

    Reviews & endorsements

    " always intensely focused on the big picture; there is no chance that the reader will lose sight of what is important or where the stroy is going. He is equally meticulous about details; his explanations are finely crafted and complete...[the book] will be the salvation of many a graduate student preparing for qualifying exams." D.V. Feldman, Choice
