By Robert Oliver

This book's target is to make obtainable strategies for learning Whitehead teams of finite teams, in addition to quite a few comparable themes equivalent to induction thought and p-adic logarithms. the writer has integrated a long creation to set the scene for non-specialists who wish an outline of the sector, its heritage and its functions. the remainder of the publication comprises 3 components: normal idea, workforce earrings of p-groups and normal finite teams. The e-book could be welcomed through experts in ok- and L-theory and via algebraists normally as a state-of-the paintings survey of the area.

Operator Algebras: Theory of C*-Algebras and von Neumann Algebras: 122 (Encyclopaedia of Mathematical Sciences)

This ebook deals a accomplished creation to the final concept of C*-algebras and von Neumann algebras. starting with the fundamentals, the idea is built via such subject matters as tensor items, nuclearity and exactness, crossed items, K-theory, and quasidiagonality. The presentation conscientiously and accurately explains the most positive aspects of every a part of the speculation of operator algebras; most crucial arguments are a minimum of defined and plenty of are provided in complete aspect.

Harmonic Analysis and Representation Theory for Groups Acting on Homogenous Trees (London Mathematical Society Lecture Note Series)

Those notes deal with in complete element the speculation of representations of the gang of automorphisms of a homogeneous tree. The unitary irreducible representations are categorized in 3 varieties: a continual sequence of round representations; targeted representations; and a countable sequence of cuspidal representations as outlined by means of G.

Groups of Prime Power Order. Volume 2 (De Gruyter Expositions in Mathematics)

This is often the second one of 3 volumes dedicated to easy finite p-group thought. just like the 1st quantity, enormous quantities of significant effects are analyzed and, in lots of circumstances, simplified. very important subject matters provided during this monograph comprise: (a) category of p-groups all of whose cyclic subgroups of composite orders are basic, (b) category of 2-groups with precisely 3 involutions, (c) proofs of Ward's theorem on quaternion-free teams, (d) 2-groups with small centralizers of an involution, (e) class of 2-groups with precisely 4 cyclic subgroups of order 2n > 2, (f) new proofs of Blackburn's theorem on minimum nonmetacyclic teams, (g) category of p-groups all of whose subgroups of index p2 are abelian, (h) type of 2-groups all of whose minimum nonabelian subgroups have order eight, (i) p-groups with cyclic subgroups of index p2 are labeled.
