This is the first of two volumes providing an introduction to modern developments in the representation theory of finite groups and associative algebras, which have transformed the subject into a study of categories of modules. Thus, Dr. Benson's unique perspective in this book incorporates homological algebra and the theory of representations of finite-dimensional algebras. This volume is primarily concerned with the exposition of the necessary background material, and the heart of the discussion is a lengthy introduction to the (Auslander-Reiten) representation theory of finite dimensional algebras, in which the techniques of quivers with relations and almost-split sequences are discussed in some detail.


1. Background material from rings and modules; 2. Homological algebra; 3. Modules for group algebra; 4. Methods from the representation of algebra; 5. Representation rings and Burnside rings; 6. Block theory.


"...a very welcome addition to the existing classical literature on representation theory and cohomology of finite groups...fascinating reading for someone who already has a basic knowledge of representation theory and cohomology ...I can recommend this book highly to anyone who works with representation theory and cohomology of finite groups."
