This refereed collection of research papers and survey articles reflects the interplay of finite-dimensional algebras with other areas (algebraic geometry, homological algebra, and the theory of quantum groups). Current trends are presented from the discussions at the AMS-IMS-SIAM Joint Summer Research Conference at the University of Washington (Seattle).

The volume features several excellent expository articles which will introduce the beginning researcher to cutting-edge topics in representation theory. The book will also provide inspiration to researchers in related areas, as it includes original papers spanning a broad spectrum of representation theory.


  • Work outlining significant progress on long-standing open problems.
  • Survey articles offering both overviews and introductions to various subfields of the topic.
  • Expositions reflecting the interplay between the representation theory of algebras and other fields.


Graduate students and researchers in representation theory of algebras, noetherian rings, Hopf algebras, quantum groups, deformation theory, applications of algebraic geometry and invariant theory to representation theory.
