Aus den Rezensionen zur englischen Auflage:
"Die Leser von Pesics faszinierendem kleinen Buch werden zu dem unausweichlichen Urteil kommen: Niels [Henrik] Abel hat sich der Genialität im fünften Grade schuldig gemacht."
William Dunham, Muhlenberg university und Autor von "Journey via Genius: the nice Theorems of Mathematics
"Peter Pesic schreibt über Abels Werk mit Begeisterung und Einfühlungsvermögen, und ruft Erinnerungen an die großartigen Momente in der Entwicklung der Algebra wach."
Barry Mazur, Gerhard Gade college Professor, Harvard University
"Ein einzigartiges Buch. Peter Pesics Chronik des langen Weges der Mathematiker zum Verständnis, wann eine Gleichung gelöst werden kann - und wann nicht - ist amüsant, einleuchtend und leserfreundlich. Der Autor bemüht sich sehr, auch weniger bekannte Namen wie Viète und Ruffini gebührend zu würdigen und verlangt von seinen Lesern nicht mehr als Basiswissen in der Algebra - wovon ein Großteil angenehmerweise getrennt vom Haupttext plaziert wurde."
Tony Rothman, division of Physics, Bryn Mawr College
"Peter Pesics Geschichte über die Entstehung der Mathematik ist genauso spannend wie ein Roman."

Linear algebra and matrix concept are primarily synonymous phrases for a space of arithmetic that has develop into the most helpful and pervasive instruments in quite a lot of disciplines. it's also an issue of serious mathematical good looks. as a result of either one of those evidence, linear algebra has more and more been introduced into decrease degrees of the curriculum, both along side the calculus or cut loose it yet on the comparable point. a wide and nonetheless starting to be variety of textbooks has been written to fulfill this want, aimed toward scholars on the junior, sophomore, or perhaps freshman degrees. hence, so much scholars now acquiring a bachelor's measure within the sciences or engineering have had a few publicity to linear algebra. yet not often, even if stable classes are taken on the junior or senior degrees, do those scholars have an sufficient operating wisdom of the topic to be important in graduate paintings or in examine and improvement actions in govt and undefined. specifically, most basic classes cease on the aspect of canonical kinds, in order that whereas the scholar can have "seen" the Jordan and different canonical varieties, there's frequently little appreciation in their usefulness. and there's nearly by no means time within the ordinary classes to house extra really expert themes like nonnegative matrices, inertia theorems, and so forth. consequently, many graduate classes in arithmetic, utilized mathe matics, or functions boost sure components of matrix conception as needed.

Extending modules are generalizations of injective modules and, dually, lifting modules generalize projective supplemented modules. there's a yes asymmetry during this duality. whereas the speculation of extending modules is definitely documented in monographs and textual content books, the aim of our monograph is to supply a radical research of vitamins and projectivity stipulations had to examine sessions of modules concerning lifting modules.The textual content starts with an advent to small submodules, the novel, diversifications on projectivity, and hole size. the following chapters ponder preradicals and torsion theories (in specific with regards to small modules), decompositions of modules (including the alternate estate and native semi-T-nilpotency), vitamins in modules (with particular emphasis on semilocal endomorphism rings), completing with a protracted bankruptcy on lifting modules, major up their use within the conception of ideal earrings, Harada jewelry, andquasi-Frobenius rings.Most of the fabric within the monograph seems in publication shape for the 1st time. the most textual content is augmented by means of a ample provide of workouts including reviews on additional comparable fabric and on how the speculation has advanced.
