Product Overview

Group Ring Groups, Volume 1 and 2: Structure Theorems of Unit Groups is a two-volume graduate course designed to give a comprehensive, state-of-the-art account of describing large subgroups of the unit group of the integral group ring of a finite group and, more generally, of the unit group of an order in a finite dimensional semi-simple rational algebra. Since the book is addressed to graduate students, as well as young researchers, all required background on these diverse areas, both old and new, is included. Supporting problems illustrate the results and complete some of the proofs. Basic courses in group theory, ring theory and field theory are assumed as background.

Volume 1 contains all the details on describing generic constructions of units and the subgroup they generate. Volume 2 mainly is about structure theorems and geometric methods. Without being encyclopedic, all main results and techniques used to achieve these results are included.
