# Quadratic Algebras

Share this page
*Alexander Polishchuk; Leonid Positselski*

This book introduces recent developments in the study of algebras
defined by quadratic relations. One of the main problems in the study of these
(and similarly defined) algebras is how to control their size. A central notion
in solving this problem is the notion of a Koszul algebra, which was introduced
in 1970 by S. Priddy and then appeared in many areas of mathematics, such as
algebraic geometry, representation theory, noncommutative geometry,
\(K\)-theory, number theory, and noncommutative linear algebra.

The authors give a coherent exposition of the theory of quadratic and Koszul
algebras, including various definitions of Koszulness, duality theory,
Poincaré–Birkhoff–Witt-type theorems for Koszul algebras,
and the Koszul deformation principle. In the concluding chapter of the book,
they explain a surprising connection between Koszul algebras and one-dependent
discrete-time stochastic processes.

The book can be used by graduate students and researchers working
in algebra and any of the above-mentioned areas of
mathematics.

#### Readership

Graduate students and research mathematicians interested in algebra.

#### Reviews & Endorsements

The authors are leading experts in the field, and the book is a rather complete statement of the art of these subjects. Many known results are unified and generalized. The book is recommended to anybody interested in these subjects.
