A co-publication of the AMS and Canadian Mathematical Society

This volume contains recent results on geometric aspects of
representations of algebras, a thorough treatment of the theory of
quasitilted algebras, new developments on infinite dimensional
representations of finite dimensional algebras, a bridge between
representation of algebraic groups and representation theory of finite
dimensional algebras, and recent discoveries on modular representation
theory. In addition, the volume contains two papers devoted to some
of Maurice Auslander's many contributions both in the representation
theory of finite dimensional algebras and in commutative ring theory.
The invited contributions to this volume are based on lectures given
by leading researchers in the field at the Workshop on Representations
of Algebras and Related Topics, Trondheim, Norway.

Features:

- a unique collection of survey papers containing old and new developments in the representation theory of finite dimensional algebras and related topics
- an outstanding source for examples of different techniques developed in recent years in this area of research
- papers presented with emphasis on clarity and readability

A general background in noncommutative algebra including rings, modules and homological algebra is required. Given that, parts of this volume would be suitable as a textbook for an advanced graduate course in algebra.

Titles in this series are copublished with the Canadian Mathematical Society. Members of the Canadian Mathematical Society may order at the AMS member price.
