This introduction to the classical theory of invariants of algebraic forms is divided into three parts: linear transformations; algebraic properties of invariants and covariants; symbolic notation of Aronhold and Clebsch.

The octonions are the largest of the four normed division algebras. The author describes them and their relation to Clifford algebras and spinors, Bott periodicity, projective and Lorentzian geometry, Jordan algebras, and the exceptional Lie groups.

Near-rings are one of the generalized structures of rings. This is a book on Smarandache near-rings where the Smarandache analogues of the near-ring concepts are developed. The reader is expected to have a background in algebra and in near-rings.
