9780821843772: Representations of Algebraic Groups (Mathematical Surveys and Monographs)

Back in print from the AMS, the first part of this book is an introduction to the general theory of representations of algebraic group schemes. Here, Janzten describes important basic notions: induction functors, cohomology, quotients, Frobenius kernels, and reduction mod $p$, among others. The second part of the book is devoted to the representation theory of reductive algebraic groups and includes topics such as the description of simple modules, vanishing theorems, the Borel-Bott-Weil theorem and Weyl's character formula, and Schubert schemes and line bundles on them. This is a significantly revised edition of a modern classic. The author has added nearly 150 pages of new material describing later developments and has made major revisions to parts of the old text. It continues to be the ultimate source of information on representations of algebraic groups in finite characteristics. The book is suitable for graduate students and research mathematicians interested in algebraic groups and their representations. Algebra, as a subdiscipline of mathematics, arguably has a history going back some 4000 years to ancient Mesopotamia.The history, however, of what is recognized today as high school algebra is much shorter, extending back to the sixteenth century, while the history of what practicing mathematicians call "modern algebra" is even shorter still. The present volume provides a glimpse into the complicated and often convoluted history of this latter conception of algebra by juxtaposing twelve episodes in the evolution of modern algebra from the early nineteenth-century work of Charles Babbage on functional equations to Alexandre Grothendieck's mid-twentieth-century metaphor of a "rising sea" in his categorical approach to algebraic geometry. In addition to considering the technical development of various aspects of algebraic thought, the historians of modern algebra whose work is united in this volume explore such themes as the changing aims and organization of the subject as well as the often complex lines of mathematical communication within and across national boundaries. Among the specific algebraic ideas considered are the concept of divisibility and the introduction of non-commutative algebras into the study of number theory and the emergence of algebraic geometry in the twentieth century.The resulting volume is essential reading for anyone interested in the history of modern mathematics in general and modern algebra in particular. It will be of particular interest to mathematicians and historians of mathematics. Information for our distributors: Co-published with the London Mathematical Society beginning with Volume 4.

Review:

This is an authoritative [book] which, in its updated form, will continue to be the research worker's main reference. From a practical point of view, the scheme adopted of adding new material in the final chapters and keeping the structure of the rest of the book largely unchanged is extremely convenient for all those familiar with the first edition. We are extremely lucky to have such a superb text. --Bulletin of the London Mathematical Society

Very readable ... meant to give its reader an introduction to the representation theory of reductive algebraic groups ... --Zentralblatt MATH

Those familiar with [Jantzen's previous] works will approach this new book ... with eager anticipation. They will not be disappointed, as the high standard of the earlier works is not only maintained but exceeded ... very well written and the author has taken great care over accuracy both of mathematical details and in references to the work of others. The discussion is well motivated throughout ... This impressive and wide ranging volume will be extremely useful to workers in the theory of algebraic groups ... a readable and scholarly book. --Mathematical Reviews
