New Directions in Hopf Algebras
by S. Montgomery, H. Schneider
Publisher: Cambridge University Press 2002
Number of pages: 485
Hopf algebras have important connections to quantum theory, Lie algebras, knot and braid theory, operator algebras, and other areas of physics and mathematics. The book gives a clear picture of the current trends in this active field, with a focus on what is likely to be important in future research.

The octonions are the largest of the four normed division algebras. The author describes them and their relation to Clifford algebras and spinors, Bott periodicity, projective and Lorentzian geometry, Jordan algebras, and the exceptional Lie groups.

This book presents the basic theory of commutators in congruence modular varieties and some of its strongest applications. The authors take an algebraic approach, using some of the shortcuts that Taylor and others have discovered.

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.
