# Trends in the Representation Theory of Finite Dimensional Algebras

Share this page *Edited by *
*Edward L. Green; Birge Huisgen-Zimmermann*

This refereed collection of research papers and survey
articles reflects the interplay of finite-dimensional algebras with
other areas (algebraic geometry, homological algebra, and the theory
of quantum groups). Current trends are presented from the discussions
at the AMS-IMS-SIAM Joint Summer Research Conference at the University of
Washington (Seattle).

The volume features several excellent expository articles which
will introduce the beginning researcher to cutting-edge topics in
representation theory. The book will also provide inspiration to
researchers in related areas, as it includes original papers spanning
a broad spectrum of representation theory.

Features:

- Work outlining significant progress on long-standing open problems.
- Survey articles offering both overviews and introductions to various subfields of the topic.
- Expositions reflecting the interplay between the representation theory of algebras and other fields.
