Progress in Commutative Algebra 2: Closures, Finiteness and Factorization
by Christopher Francisco, et al.
Publisher: De Gruyter Open 2012
Number of pages: 315
This volume contains surveys on aspects of closure operations, finiteness conditions and factorization. Closure operations on ideals and modules are a bridge between noetherian and nonnoetherian commutative algebra. It contains a nice guide to closure operations by Epstein, but also contains an article on test ideals by Schwede and Tucker and one by Enescu which discusses the action of the Frobenius on finite dimensional vector spaces both of which are related to tight closure.

An expository account of the theory of twisted commutative algebras, which can be thought of as a theory for handling commutative algebras with large groups of linear symmetries. Examples include the coordinate rings of determinantal varieties, etc.

This is a survey of lattice point methods for binomial ideals. It is aimed at students and researchers in algebra; it includes many examples, open problems, and elementary introductions to the motivations and background from outside of algebra.
