# Cohen-Macaulay Representations

Share this page
*Graham J. Leuschke; Roger Wiegand*

This book is a comprehensive treatment of the representation theory of
maximal Cohen-Macaulay (MCM) modules over local rings. This topic is
at the intersection of commutative algebra, singularity theory, and
representations of groups and algebras.

Two introductory chapters treat the Krull-Remak-Schmidt Theorem on
uniqueness of direct-sum decompositions and its failure for modules
over local rings. Chapters 3–10 study the central problem of
classifying the rings with only finitely many indecomposable MCM
modules up to isomorphism, i.e., rings of finite CM type. The
fundamental material—ADE/simple singularities, the double branched
cover, Auslander-Reiten theory, and the Brauer-Thrall conjectures—is
covered clearly and completely. Much of the content has never before
appeared in book form. Examples include the representation theory of
Artinian pairs and Burban-Drozd's related construction in dimension
two, an introduction to the McKay correspondence from the point of
view of maximal Cohen-Macaulay modules, Auslander-Buchweitz's MCM
approximation theory, and a careful treatment of nonzero
characteristic. The remaining seven chapters present results on
bounded and countable CM type and on the representation theory of
totally reflexive modules.
