An Introduction to Homological Algebra

  title={An Introduction to Homological Algebra},
  author={Joseph J. Rotman},
An Introduction to Homological Algebra discusses the origins of algebraic topology. It also presents the study of homological algebra as a two-stage affair. First, one must learn the language of Ext and Tor and what it describes. Second, one must be able to compute these things, and often, this involves yet another language: spectral sequences. Homological algebra is an accessible subject to those who wish to learn it, and this book is the author's attempt to make it lovable. This book… 
Torsion theories and Auslander-Reiten sequences
Chapter 0 gives a gentle background to the thesis. It begins with some general notions and concepts from homological algebra. For example, not only are the notions of universal property and of
Blow-up algebras in algebra, geometry and combinatorics
The primary topic of this thesis lies at the crossroads of Commutative Algebra and its interactions with Algebraic Geometry and Combinatorics. It is mainly focused around the following themes: I
Extensions of Normed Algebras
We review and analyse techniques from the literature for extending a normed algebra, A to a normed algebra, B, so that B has interesting or desirable properties which A may lack. For example, B might
Algebraic Analysis and Mathematical Physics
This paper aims to revisit the mathematical foundations of both General Relativity and Electromagnetism after one century, in the light of the formal theory of systems of partial differential
Derived Categories
This is the fourth (and last) prepublication version of a book on derived categories, that will be published by Cambridge University Press. The purpose of the book is to provide solid foundations for
Monoidal Categories and the Gerstenhaber Bracket in Hochschild Cohomology
Let A be an associative and unital algebra over a commutative ring K, such that A is K-projective. The Hochschild cohomology ring HH*(A) of A is, as a graded algebra, isomorphic to the Ext-algebra of
Local Cohomology: An Algebraic Introduction with Geometric Applications
This book provides a careful and detailed algebraic introduction to Grothendieck’s local cohomology theory, and provides many illustrations of applications of the theory in commutative algebra and in
Kempf (1976) studied proper, G-equivariant maps from equivariant vector bundles over flag manifolds to G-representations V, which he called collapsings. We give a simple formula for the G-equivariant


An Introduction to the Theory of Groups
Anyone who has studied "abstract algebra" and linear algebra as an undergraduate can understand this book. This edition has been completely revised and reorganized, without however losing any of the
Lectures on rings and modules
This book is an introduction to the theory of associative rings and their modules, designed primarily for graduate students. The standard topics on the structure of rings are covered, with a
Rings and Categories of Modules
This book is intended to provide a self-contained account of much of the theory of rings and modules. The theme of the text throughout is the relationship between the one-sided ideal structure a ring
Differential analysis on complex manifolds
* Presents a concise introduction to the basics of analysis and geometry on compact complex manifolds * Provides tools which are the building blocks of many mathematical developments over the past
Introduction to algebraic K-theory
Algebraic K-theory describes a branch of algebra that centers about two functors. K0 and K1, which assign to each associative ring ? an abelian group K0? or K1? respectively. Professor Milnor sets
