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.

Determinantal rings and varieties have been a central topic of commutative algebra and algebraic geometry. The book gives a coherent treatment of the structure of determinantal rings. The approach is via the theory of algebras with straightening law.
