**Thin Groups and Superstrong Approximation**

by **Emmanuel Breuillard, Hee Oh (eds.)** - **Cambridge University Press** , **2014**

This book focuses on recent developments concerning various quantitative aspects of thin groups. It provides a broad panorama of a very active field of mathematics at the boundary between geometry, dynamical systems, number theory, and combinatorics.

**Groups and Semigroups: Connections and Contrasts**

by **John Meakin** - **University of Nebraska-Lincoln** , **2005**

In the present paper, I will discuss some of these connections between group theory and semigroup theory, and I will also discuss some rather surprising contrasts between the theories. I will focus primarily on the theory of inverse semigroups.

**Theory and Applications of Finite Groups**

by **G. A. Miller, H. F. Blichfeldt, L. E. Dickson** - **J. Wiley** , **1916**

The book presents in a unified manner the more fundamental aspects of finite groups and their applications, and at the same time preserves the advantage which arises when each branch of an extensive subject is written by a specialist in that branch.
