**Progress in Commutative Algebra 2: Closures, Finiteness and Factorization**

by Christopher Francisco, et al.

**Publisher**: De Gruyter Open 2012**ISBN-13**: 9783110278606**Number of pages**: 315

**Description**:

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.
