This book is based on lectures by six internationally known experts presented at the 2002 MSRI introductory workshop on commutative algebra. They focus on the interaction of commutative algebra with other areas of mathematics, including algebraic geometry, group cohomology and representation theory, and combinatorics, with all necessary background provided.

These notes give a rapid review of the rudiments of classical commutative algebra. Some of the main results whose proofs are outlined here are: Hilbert basis theorem, primary decomposition of ideals in noetherian rings, Krull intersection theorem.

Frobenius splitting has inspired a vast arsenal of techniques in commutative algebra, algebraic geometry, and representation theory. The purpose of these lectures is to give a gentle introduction to Frobenius splitting for beginners.
