This unique book on commutative algebra is divided into two parts in order to facilitate its use in several types of courses. The first introductory part covers the basic theory, connections with algebraic geometry, computational aspects, and extensions to module theory. The more advanced second part covers material such as associated primes and primary decomposition, local rings, M-sequences and Cohen-Macaulay modules, and homological methods.
A unique textbook in commutative algebra, written by an expert
Consists of two parts, to serve both introductory and advanced courses
Of particular interest to students and lecturers in algebra and algebraic geometry
