    Contemporary Mathematics
    Israel Mathematical Conference Proceedings
    Volume: 8002024
    MSC: Primary 11; 14; 15; 16; 17; 19; 20

    This volume contains the proceedings of the Amitsur Centennial Symposium, held from November 1–4, 2021, at The Hebrew University of Jerusalem.

    Shimshon Amitsur was a pioneer in several branches of algebra, the leading algebraist in Israel for several decades who contributed major theorems, inspiring results, useful observations, and enlightening tricks to many areas of the field.

    The fifteen papers included in the volume represent the broad impact of Amitsur's work on such areas as the theory of finite simple groups, algebraic groups, PI-algebras and growth of rings, quadratic forms and division algebras, torsors and Severi-Brauer surfaces, Hopf algebras and braces, invariants, automorphisms and derivations.

    Readership

    Graduate students and research mathematicians interested in group theory, simple algebras, quadratic forms, representation theory, and ring theory.
