Symplectic Amalgams

Genre: Mathematics

The aim of this book is the classification of symplectic amalgams - structures which are intimately related to the finite simple groups. In all there sixteen infinite families of symplectic amalgams together with 62 more exotic examples. The classification touches on many important aspects of modern group theory: * p-local analysis * the amalgam method * representation theory over finite fields; and * properties of the finite simple groups. The account is for the most part self-contained and the wealth of detail makes this book an excellent introduction to these recent developments for graduate students, as well as a valuable resource and reference for specialists in the area.

Genre: Mathematics

Contains all the mathematical works of the 20th-century German mathematician except those on group theory, which comprise the first volume. Most are on matrix theory. Among them are 24 research papers arranged chronologically, many with commentary by specialists; lecture notes on the analytic theory of matrix groups; his series of contributions to the mathematical treatment of complex eigenvalue problems prepared during the Second World War; and 1973 lecture notes on selected topics of permutation groups. About half of the pieces are in German. No index. Annotation copyrighted by Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
