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.

Concise study presents in a short space some of the important ideas and results in the theory of nonassociative algebras, with particular emphasis on alternative and (commutative) Jordan algebras. Written as an introduction for graduate students.

The author embarked on writing this book on Smarandache rings (S-rings) specially to motivate both ring theorists and Smarandache algebraists to develop and study several important and innovative properties about S-rings.

A text on universal algebra with a strong emphasis on applications and examples from computer science. The text introduces signatures, algebras, homomorphisms, initial algebras, free algebras, and illustrates them with interactive applications.
