For lots of humans there's existence after forty; for a few mathematicians there's algebra after Galois idea. the target ofthis ebook is to end up the latter thesis. it's written basically for college kids who've assimilated monstrous parts of a customary first 12 months graduate algebra textbook, and who've loved the event. the fabric that's offered right here shouldn't be deadly whether it is swallowed via individuals who're no longer individuals of that staff. The gadgets of our recognition during this ebook are associative algebras, ordinarily those which are finite dimensional over a box. This topic is perfect for a textbook that may lead graduate scholars right into a really good box of analysis. the foremost theorems on associative algebras inc1ude the most excellent result of the nice heros of algebra: Wedderbum, Artin, Noether, Hasse, Brauer, Albert, Jacobson, and so on. the method of refine ment and c1arification has introduced the facts of the gemstones during this topic to a degree that may be liked by means of scholars with purely modest history. the topic is sort of detailed within the wide selection of contacts that it makes with different components of arithmetic. The examine of associative algebras con tributes to and attracts from such themes as crew concept, commutative ring thought, box idea, algebraic quantity concept, algebraic geometry, homo logical algebra, and type conception. It even has a few ties with components of utilized arithmetic.

If Zn(C) and Hn(C) are projective A-modules for all n then Hn(C ®A D) ® Hi(C) ®A Hj(D) i+j=n PROOF. The sequence 0->Bn(C)->Zn(C)-Hn(C)-+0 splits since Hn(C) is projective, and so Bn(C) is also projective. Thus ZZ(C) and B,,(C) are flat, and also Tori (H, (C), Hj(D)) = 0, so the result follows from the Kenneth theorem. 3. If Zn(C) and Hn(C) are projective A-modules and either C or D is exact then so is C ®A D. REMARK. The case A = R a commutative ring of coefficients is a useful special case of the above theorems.

HomA(P2, M') - .. where Sn is given by composition with an+I. This complex is independent of choice of projective resolution, up to chain homotopy equivalence. Thus its cohomology groups are independent of this choice, and we define HomA(Po, M') b_. ExtnA(M, M') = Hn(HomA(P, M'), b*). Note that Toro (M', M) = M' ®A M and Exto(M, M') = HorA(M, M'). EXAMPLE. In case A = Z, a A-module is the same as an abelian group. , Pn, = 0 for n > 2), and so Tort and Extn are zero for n > 2. It was conjectured by J.

It often happens, for example, that 2. HOMOLOGICAL ALGEBRA 28 Cn = 0 (resp. Cn = 0) for n < 0 or for n < -1. We say that a (co)chain complex C is bounded below if Cn = 0 (resp. Cn = 0) for all n sufficiently large negative, and bounded above if this holds for all n sufficiently large positive. C is bounded if it is bounded both below and above. 2. The homology of a chain complex C is given by H.
