| What is the real nature of algebra? How does algebra help us to gain insight into other areas of mathematics? Saunders MacLane probes these and other questions. In a lecture that ranges from categories to braids, from tensor products to spectral sequences, MacLane shows how algebra forms a common thread uniting them all. The lecture is accessible to advanced undergraduates. (Columbus, OH, 1990) Reviews "Accessible to those at the level of an advanced undergraduate." *-- Mathematical Reviews* |
