Cambridge Studies in Advanced Mathematics #8: Commutative Ring Theoryby Hideyuki Matsumura
Synopses & ReviewsPublisher Comments:In addition to being an interesting and profound subject in its own right, commutative ring theory is important as a foundation for algebraic geometry and complex analytical geometry. Matsumura covers the basic material, including dimension theory, depth, CohenMacaulay rings, Gorenstein rings, Krull rings and valuation rings. More advanced topics such as Ratliff's theorems on chains of prime ideals are also explored. The work is essentially selfcontained, the only prerequisite being a sound knowledge of modern algebra, yet the reader is taken to the frontiers of the subject. Exercises are provided at the end of each section and solutions or hints to some of them are given at the end of the book.
Book News Annotation:Graduate textbook for students in commutative algebra covering dimension theory, depth, CohenMacaulay rings, Gorenstein rings, Krull rings, and valuation rings. Exercises.
