**Geometric Models for Noncommutative Algebra**

by Ana Cannas da Silva, Alan Weinstein

**Publisher**: University of California at Berkeley 1998**Number of pages**: 194

**Description**:

Noncommutative geometry is the study of noncommutative algebras as if they were algebras of functions on spaces, like the commutative algebras associated to affine algebraic varieties, differentiable manifolds, topological spaces, and measure spaces. In this book, we discuss several types of geometric objects which are closely related to noncommutative algebras.
