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.

This is the first book on the Smarandache algebraic structures that have two binary operations. Semirings are algebraic structures with two binary operations enjoying several properties and it is the most generalized structure.
