By Victor Ginzburg

This publication represents a suite of invited papers via awesome mathematicians in algebra, algebraic geometry, and quantity conception devoted to Vladimir Drinfeld. unique examine articles replicate the diversity of Drinfeld's paintings, and his profound contributions to the Langlands application, quantum teams, and mathematical physics are paid specific awareness. those ten unique articles by way of sought after mathematicians, devoted to Drinfeld at the social gathering of his fiftieth birthday, widely replicate the variety of Drinfeld's personal pursuits in algebra, algebraic geometry, and quantity theory.

**Best group theory books**

This publication bargains a complete creation to the final thought of C*-algebras and von Neumann algebras. starting with the fundamentals, the speculation is constructed via such themes as tensor items, nuclearity and exactness, crossed items, K-theory, and quasidiagonality. The presentation conscientiously and accurately explains the most positive factors of every a part of the idea of operator algebras; most crucial arguments are at the least defined and lots of are offered in complete element.

This quantity makes a speciality of advancements within the box of team concept in its broadest feel and is of curiosity to theoretical and experimental physicists, mathematicians, and scientists in similar disciplines who're drawn to the newest tools and functions. In an more and more ultra-specialized global, this quantity will exhibit the interchange of principles and techniques in theoretical and mathematical physics.

**Basic Algebraic Topology and its Applications**

This booklet offers an obtainable advent to algebraic topology, a ﬁeld on the intersection of topology, geometry and algebra, including its purposes. furthermore, it covers a number of comparable themes which are in truth very important within the total scheme of algebraic topology. Comprising eighteen chapters and appendices, the e-book integrates a number of techniques of algebraic topology, supported through examples, routines, functions and old notes.

**Finite and Profinite Quantum Systems (Quantum Science and Technology)**

This monograph offers an creation to finite quantum structures, a box on the interface among quantum info and quantity concept, with functions in quantum computation and condensed topic physics. the 1st significant a part of this monograph experiences the so-called `qubits' and `qudits', platforms with periodic finite lattice as place house.
