This volume presents the proceedings from the conference on Abelian Groups, Rings, and Modules (AGRAM) held at the University of Western Australia (Perth). Included are articles based on talks given at the conference, as well as a few specially invited papers. The proceedings are dedicated to Professor László Fuchs. The book includes a tribute and a review of his work by his long-time collaborator, Professor Luigi Salce.

Four surveys from leading experts follow Professor Salce's article. They present recent results from active research areas:

  • Error correcting codes as ideals in group rings,
  • Duality in module categories,
  • Automorphism groups of abelian groups, and
  • Generalizations of isomorphism in torsion-free abelian groups.

In addition to these surveys, the volume contains 22 research articles in diverse areas connected with the themes of the conference. The areas discussed include abelian groups and their endomorphism rings, modules over various rings, commutative and non-commutative ring theory, varieties of groups, and topological aspects of algebra. The book offers a comprehensive source for recent research in this active area of study.


Graduate students and research mathematicians interested in abelian group theory and combinatorics.
