The development of algebraic geometry over groups, geometric group theory and group-based cryptography, has led to there being a tremendous recent interest in infinite group theory. This volume presents a good collection of papers detailing areas of current interest. Contents: Groups with the Weak Minimal Condition on Non-Permutable Subgroups (Laxmi K Chatuat and Martyn R Dixon)A Survey: Shamir Threshold Scheme and Its Enhancements (Chi Sing Chum, Benjamin Fine, and Xiaowen Zhang)The Zappa-Szep Product of Left-Orderable Groups (Fabienne Chouraqui)Totally Disconnected Groups From Baumslag-Solitar Groups (Murray Elder and George Willis)Elementary and Universal Theories of Nonabelian Commutative Transitive and CSA Groups (B Fine, A M Gaglione, and D Spellman)Commutative Transitivity and the CSA Property (Benjamin Fine, Anthony Gaglione, Gerhard Rosenberger, and Dennis Spellman)The Universal Theory of Free Burnside Groups of Large Prime Exponent (Anthony M Gaglione, Seymour Lipschutz, and Dennis Spellman)Primitive Curve Lengths on Pairs of Pants (Jane Gilman)Drawing Inferences Under Maximum Entropy From Relational Probabilistic Knowledge Using Group Theory (Gabriele Kern-Isberner, Marco Wilhelm, and Christoph Beierle)On Some Infinite-Dimensional Linear Groups and the Structure of Related Modules (L A Kurdachenko and I Ya Subbotin)On New Analogs of Some Classical Group Theoretical Results in Lie Rings (L A Kurdachenko, A A Pypka and I Ya Subbotin)Log-Space Complexity of the Conjugacy Problem in Wreath Products (Alexei Myasnikov, Svetla Vassileva, and Armin Weiss)Group Presentations, Cayley Graphs and Markov Processes (Peter Olszewski) Readership: Graduate students and researchers in group theory. Keywords: Infinite Group Theory;Combinatorial Group Theory;Geometric Group TheoryReview: Key Features: This book is centered on infinite group theory from a combinatorial and geometric point of view.

Topology is a branch of pure mathematics that deals with the abstract relationships found in geometry and analysis. Written with the mature student in mind, Foundations of Topology, Second Edition, provides a user-friendly, clear, and concise introduction to this fascinating area of mathematics. The author introduces topics that are well motivated with thorough proofs that make them easy to follow. Historical comments are dispersed throughout the text, and exercises, varying in degree of difficulty, are found at the end of each chapter. Foundations of Topology is an excellent text for teaching students how to develop the skill to write clear and precise proofs.

The intent of this book is to introduce readers to algebra from a point of view that stresses examples and classification. Whenever possible, the main theorems are treated as tools that may be used to construct and analyze specific types of groups, rings, fields, modules, etc. Sample constructions and classifications are given in both text and exercises.

Geometric Constructions

Geometric constructions have been a popular part of mathematics throughout history. The first chapter here is informal and starts from scratch, introducing all the geometric constructions from high school that have been forgotten or were never learned. The second chapter formalises Plato's game, and examines problems from antiquity such as the impossibility of trisecting an arbitrary angle. After that, variations on Plato's theme are explored: using only a ruler, a compass, toothpicks, a ruler and dividers, a marked rule, or a tomahawk, ending in a chapter on geometric constructions by paperfolding. The author writes in a charming style and nicely intersperses history and philosophy within the mathematics, teaching a little geometry and a little algebra along the way. This is as much an algebra book as it is a geometry book, yet since all the algebra and geometry needed is developed within the text, very little mathematical background is required. This text has been class tested for several semesters with a master's level class for secondary teachers.
