Progress in Commutative Algebra 2: Closures, Finiteness and Factorization

Publisher: De Gruyter Open 2012
Number of pages: 315
This volume contains surveys on aspects of closure operations, finiteness conditions and factorization. Closure operations on ideals and modules are a bridge between noetherian and nonnoetherian commutative algebra. It contains a nice guide to closure operations by Epstein, but also contains an article on test ideals by Schwede and Tucker and one by Enescu which discusses the action of the Frobenius on finite dimensional vector spaces both of which are related to tight closure.

These notes give a rapid review of the rudiments of classical commutative algebra. Some of the main results whose proofs are outlined here are: Hilbert basis theorem, primary decomposition of ideals in noetherian rings, Krull intersection theorem.

An expository account of the theory of twisted commutative algebras, which can be thought of as a theory for handling commutative algebras with large groups of linear symmetries. Examples include the coordinate rings of determinantal varieties, etc.

Frobenius splitting has inspired a vast arsenal of techniques in commutative algebra, algebraic geometry, and representation theory. The purpose of these lectures is to give a gentle introduction to Frobenius splitting for beginners.
