    CRM Proceedings & Lecture Notes
    Volume: 352004; 287 pp
    MSC: Primary 13; 14; 20; 54;

    This volume includes the proceedings of a workshop on Invariant Theory held at Queen's University (Ontario). The workshop was part of the theme year held under the auspices of the Centre de recherches mathématiques (CRM) in Montreal. The gathering brought together two communities of researchers: those working in characteristic 0 and those working in positive characteristic.

    The book contains three types of papers: survey articles providing introductions to computational invariant theory, modular invariant theory of finite groups, and the invariant theory of Lie groups; expository works recounting recent research in these three areas and beyond; and open problems of current interest.

    The book is suitable for graduate students and researchers working in invariant theory.
