# An Introduction to Rings and Modules With K-theory in View by A. J. Berrick

By A. J. Berrick

This concise creation to ring conception, module concept and quantity concept is perfect for a primary yr graduate scholar, in addition to being a very good reference for operating mathematicians in different parts. ranging from definitions, the publication introduces basic buildings of earrings and modules, as direct sums or items, and by way of designated sequences. It then explores the constitution of modules over a number of varieties of ring: noncommutative polynomial earrings, Artinian earrings (both semisimple and not), and Dedekind domain names. It additionally indicates how Dedekind domain names come up in quantity concept, and explicitly calculates a few earrings of integers and their category teams. approximately 2 hundred workouts supplement the textual content and introduce additional issues. This publication presents the historical past fabric for the authors' approaching significant other quantity different types and Modules. Armed with those texts, the reader can be prepared for extra complex themes in K-theory, homological algebra and algebraic quantity thought.
