This volume contains the proceedings of the conference on Quantum Affine Algebras, Extended Affine Lie Algebras, and Applications, which was held at the Banff International Research Station, Banff, Canada, from March 2-7, 2008. Many of the papers include new results on different aspects of quantum affine algebras, extended affine Lie algebras, and their applications in other areas of mathematics and physics. Any reader interested in learning about the recent developments in quantum affine algebras and extended affine Lie algebras will benefit from this book.

Focuses on some advances in the theory of semisimple Lie algebras and some direct outgrowths of that theory. This work features papers including a survey article on restricted simple Lie algebras, a survey of universal enveloping algebras of semisimple Lie algebras, a course on Kac-Moody Lie algebras and a course on formal groups.

This book is directed to researchers in Lie theory and in the theory of linear algebra, associative or otherwise, and to graduate students who have had some background in one or more of these areas.

This book deals with central simple Lie algebras over arbitrary fields of characteristic zero. It aims to give constructions of the algebras and their finite-dimensional modules in terms that are rational with respect to the given ground field. All isotropic algebras with non-reduced relative root systems are treated, along with classical anisotropic algebras. The latter are treated by what seems to be a novel device, namely by studying certain modules for isotropic classical algebras in which they are embedded. In this development, symmetric powers of central simple associative algebras, along with generalized even Clifford algebras of involutorial algebras, play central roles. Considerable attention is given to exceptional algebras. The pace is that of a rather expansive research monograph. The reader who has at hand a standard introductory text on Lie algebras, such as Jacobson or Humphreys, should be in a position to understand the results. More technical matters arise in some of the detailed arguments. The book is intended for researchers and students of algebraic Lie theory, as well as for other researchers who are seeking explicit realizations of algebras or modules. It will probably be more useful as a resource to be dipped into, than as a text to be worked straight through.

Presenting research from more than 30 international authorities, this reference provides a complete arsenal of tools and theorems to analyze systems of hyperbolic partial differential equations. The authors investigate a wide variety of problems in areas such as thermodynamics, electromagnetics, fluid dynamics, differential geometry, and topology. Renewing thought in the field of mathematical physics, Hyperbolic Differential Operators defines the notion of pseudosymmetry for matrix symbols of order zero as well as the notion of time function. Surpassing previously published material on the topic, this text is key for researchers and mathematicians specializing in hyperbolic, Schrödinger, Einstein, and partial differential equations; complex analysis; and mathematical physics.

This collection contains all my published papers, both research and expository, that were published from 1934 to 1988. The research papers arranged in chronological order appear in Volume I and II and in the first part of Volume III. The expository papers, which are mainly reports presented at conferences, appear in chronological order in the last part of Volume III. Volume I covers the period 1910 to 1947, the year I moved to Yale, Volume II covers the period 1947 to 1965 when I became Chairman of the Department at Yale and Volume III covers the period from 1965 to 1989, which goes beyond my assumption of an emeritus status in 1981. I have divided the time interval covered in each volume into subintervals preceded by an account of my personal history during this period, and a commentary on the research papers published in the period. I have omitted commentaries on the expository papers and have sorted out the commentaries on the research papers according to the principal fields of my research. my recollections, checked against written The personal history has been based on documentation in my file of letters as well as diaries. One of these was a diary I kept of my trip to the USSR in 1961; the others were diaries Florie (Florence) kept during other major visits abroad. I have also consulted Professor A. W. Tucker on historical details on Princeton during the 1930's.

This book is a collection of research papers and surveys on algebra that were presented at the Conference on Groups, Rings, and Group Rings held in Ubatuba, Brazil. This text familiarizes researchers with the latest topics, techniques, and methodologies in several branches of contemporary algebra. With extensive coverage, it examines broad themes from group theory and ring theory, exploring their relationship with other branches of algebra including actions of Hopf algebras, groups of units of group rings, combinatorics of Young diagrams, polynomial identities, growth of algebras, and more. Featuring international contributions, this book is ideal for mathematicians specializing in these areas.
