Algebras, Rings and Modules: Lie Algebras and Hopf Algebras - Michiel Hazewinkel, Nadiya Gubareni and V V Kirichenko

This book is a comprehensive treatment of the theory of formal groups and its numerous applications in several areas of mathematics. The seven chapters of the book present basics and main results of the theory, as well as very important applications in algebraic topology, number theory, and algebraic geometry. Each chapter ends with several pages of historical and bibliographic summary. One prerequisite for reading the book is an introductory graduate algebra course, including certain familiarity with category theory.

Readership

Graduate students and research mathematicians interested in formal groups and their applications in other areas of mathematics.
