A Course in Universal Algebra
by S. Burris, H.P. Sankappanavar
Publisher: Springer-Verlag 1982
Number of pages: 331
This text is not intended to be encyclopedic; rather, a few themes central to universal algebra have been developed suficiently to bring the reader to the brink of current research. The choice of topics most certainly reflects the authors' interests: a brief but substantial introduction to lattices, the most general and fundamental notions of universal algebra, a careful development of Boolean algebras, discriminator varieties, the introduction to some basic concepts, tools, and results of model theory.

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.

Hopf algebras have important connections to quantum theory, Lie algebras, knot and braid theory, operator algebras, and other areas. The book gives a clear picture of the current trends, with a focus on what will be important in future research.

In this book we shall study some elementary properties of Krull rings and factorial rings, regular rings (local and factorial), and descent methods (Galoisian descent, the Purely inseparable case, formulae concerning derivations).
