A monograph on homogeneous spaces of algebraic groups and their equivariant embeddings. Some results are supplied with proofs, the other are cited with references to the original papers. The style is intermediate between survey and detailed monograph.

This book combines foundational constructions in the theory of motives and results relating motivic cohomology to more explicit constructions. Prerequisite for understanding the work is a basic background in algebraic geometry.

This book provides an introduction to some of the most significant topics in this area, including noncommutative projective algebraic geometry, deformation theory, symplectic reflection algebras, and noncommutative resolutions of singularities.
