## Methods of Representation Theory, Volume 2Revised and expanded, this second volume presents a modern treatment of finite groups and orders. It covers classical, modular and integral representation theory and contains many important new results. Beginning with an introductory review of ring theory, algebraic number theory, and homological algebra, the book then moves on to other topics such as modular representations and integral representation theory. Also covered are class groups and Picard groups, the theory of blocks, rationality questions, indecomposable modules and more. |
