A lead figure in twentieth century noncommutative algebra, S. A. Amitsur's contributions are wide-ranging and enduring. This volume collects almost all of his work. The papers are organized into broad topic areas: general ring theory, rings satisfying a polynomial identity, combinatorial polynomial identity theory, and division algebras. Included are essays by the editors on Amitsur's work in these four areas and a biography of Amitsur written by A. Mann. This volume makes a fine addition to any mathematics book collection.

#### Readership

Graduate students and research mathematicians interested in ring theory, combinatorial algebra, and number theory.

#### Reviews & Endorsements

Although written during half a century, even now the papers in the two volumes are a delight to read, combining brilliant new ideas with fresh insights into the work of others.

-- Mathematical Reviews

These volumes are a collection of short and very readable papers, which many working algebraists will want to own; they should certainly form part of every mathematics library.
