Classgroups of Group Rings by Martin J. Taylor

Book Description

This book is a self-contained account of the theory of classgroups of group rings. The guiding philosophy has been to describe all the basic properties of such classgroups in terms of character functions. This point of view is due to A. Frohlich and it achieves a considerable simplification and clarity over previous techniques. A main feature of the book is the introduction of the author's group logarithm, with numerous examples of its application. The main results dealt with are: Ullom's conjecture for Swan modules of p-groups; the self-duality theorem for rings of integers of tame extensions; the fixed-point theorem for determinants of group rings; the existence of Adams operations on classgroups. In addition, the author includes a number of calculations of classgroups of specific families of groups such as generalized dihedral groups, and quaternion and dihedral 2-groups. The work contained in this book should be readily accessible to any graduate student in pure mathematics who has taken a course in the representation theory of finite groups. It will also be of interest to number theorists and algebraic topologists.

East Coast Chicken Supper by Martin J. Taylor East Coast Chicken Supper, Paperback (July 2005)

In a small Fife town, Gibby's back from London and he's got some explaining to do. AWOL for over a year from the small business - selling drugs - set up by him and his childhood friends Fred and Stew, poor Gibby has no idea what he's been missing out on, just as they have no idea what he's been up to.
