    MSC: Primary 14; Secondary 16; 05; 11; 12; 13; 55;

    This book is a comprehensive treatment of the theory of formal groups and its numerous applications in several areas of mathematics. The seven chapters of the book present basics and main results of the theory, as well as very important applications in algebraic topology, number theory, and algebraic geometry. Each chapter ends with several pages of historical and bibliographic summary. One prerequisite for reading the book is an introductory graduate algebra course, including certain familiarity with category theory.

    Readership

    Graduate students and research mathematicians interested in formal groups and their applications in other areas of mathematics.

  • Table of Contents
     
     
    • Chapters
    • Chapter 1. Methods for constructing one dimensional formal groups
    • Chapter 2. Methods for constructing higher dimensional formal group laws
    • Chapter 3. Curves, $p$-typical formal group laws, and lots of Witt vectors
    • Chapter 4. Homomorphisms, endomorphisms, and the classification of formal groups by power series methods
    • Chapter 5. Cartier-Dieudonné modules
    • Chapter 6. Applications of formal groups in algebraic topology, number theory, and algebraic geometry
