These lecture notes are an expanded version of the author's lectures at a graduate workshop. The main topics discussed are Artin-Schelter regular algebras, point modules, and the noncommutative projective scheme associated to a graded algebra.

This tutorial is intended to give an accessible introduction to Hopf algebras. The mathematical context is that of representation theory, and we also illustrate the structures with examples taken from combinatorics and quantum physics.

Invariant theory is a subject within abstract algebra that studies polynomial functions which do not change under transformations from a linear group. This book provides an English introduction to the symbolical method in the theory of Invariants.

In this book we shall study some elementary properties of Krull rings and factorial rings, regular rings (local and factorial), and descent methods (Galoisian descent, the Purely inseparable case, formulae concerning derivations).
