Hopf algebras have important connections to quantum theory, Lie algebras, knot and braid theory, operator algebras, and other areas. The book gives a clear picture of the current trends, with a focus on what will be important in future research.

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.

The primary object of this book is that of explaining with all the clearness at my command the leading principles of invariant algebra, in the hope of making it evident to the junior student that the subject is attractive as well as important.
