Progress in Commutative Algebra 2: Closures, Finiteness and Factorization
by Christopher Francisco, et al.
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.

Notes for an introductory course on commutative algebra. Algebraic geometry uses commutative algebraic as its 'local machinery'. The goal of these lectures is to study commutative algebra and some topics in algebraic geometry in a parallel manner.

This is a text for a basic course in commutative algebra, it should be accessible to those who have studied algebra at the beginning graduate level. The book should help the student reach an advanced level as quickly and efficiently as possible.

These notes prove the basic theorems in commutative algebra required for algebraic geometry and algebraic groups. They assume only a knowledge of the algebra usually taught in advanced undergraduate or first-year graduate courses.

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.
