    Contemporary Mathematics
    Volume: 2431999; 238 pp
    MSC: Primary 16; 19; 20; 00;

    This volume includes expositions of key developments over the past four decades in commutative and non-commutative algebra, algebraic \(K\)-theory, infinite group theory, and applications of algebra to topology. Many of the articles are based on lectures given at a conference at Columbia University honoring the 65th birthday of Hyman Bass. Important topics related to Bass's mathematical interests are surveyed by leading experts in the field. Of particular note is a professional autobiography of Professor Bass and an article by Deborah Ball on mathematical education. The range of subjects covered in the book offers a convenient single source for topics in the field.

    Readership

    Graduate students and research mathematicians interested in associative rings and algebras; mathematical historians and educators.
