# Noncommutative Rings and Their Applications

This volume contains the Proceedings of an
International Conference on Noncommutative Rings and Their
Applications, held July 1–4, 2013, at the Université
d'Artois, Lens, France. It presents recent developments in the
theories of noncommutative rings and modules over such rings as well
as applications of these to coding theory, enveloping algebras, and
Leavitt path algebras.

Material from the course “Foundations of Algebraic Coding
Theory“, given by Steven Dougherty, is included and provides the
reader with the history and background of coding theory as well as the
interplay between coding theory and algebra. In module theory, many
new results related to (almost) injective modules, injective hulls and
automorphism-invariant modules are presented. Broad generalizations of
classical projective covers are studied and category theory is used to
describe the structure of some modules. In some papers related to
more classical ring theory such as quasi duo rings or clean elements,
new points of view on classical conjectures and standard open problems
are given. Descriptions of codes over local commutative Frobenius
rings are discussed, and a list of open problems in coding theory is
presented within their context.

#### Readership

Graduate students and research mathematicians interested in noncommutative rings and coding theory.
