Lectures on Topics In The Theory of Infinite Groups
by

Publisher: Tata Institute of Fundamental Research
Number of pages: 200

Description:
As the title of this course of lectures suggests, the aim was not a systematic treatment of infinite groups. Instead the author tried to present some of the methods and results that are new and look promising, and that have not yet found their way into the books.
