## The collected works of Philip HallAs one of the world's most influential algebraists, Philip Hall is renowned for groundbreaking work in his field. The papers in this collection of his works are models of lucidity that offer relevant information for today's mathematicians and group theorists. The sequence of papers on soluble groups, up to and including his Hall-Higman paper and one on "Theorems Like Sylow's", are of fundamental importance to the development of finite group theory. Also included is Hall's Queen Mary College Mathematics Notes volume, which remains an excellent introduction to nilpotent groups. |
