Algebras and Representation Theory
The theory of rings, algebras and their representations has evolved to be a
well-defined subdiscipline of general algebra, combining its proper
methodology with that of other disciplines, thus leading to a wide variety
of application fields, ranging from algebraic geometry or number theory to
theoretical physics and robotics. Due to this, many ring papers in these
domains got dispersed in the scientific literature, making it extremely
difficult for researchers to keep track of recent developments. Algebras and
Representation Theory aims to play a unifying role in this, presenting to
its reader both up-to-date information about progress within the field of
rings, algebras and their representations, as well as clarifying
relationships with other fields.
To realize this aim Algebras and Representation Theory will publish
carefully refereed papers relating, in its broadest sense, to the structure
and representation theory of algebras, including Lie algebras and
superalgebras, rings of differential operators, group rings and algebras,
C*-algebras and Hopf algebras (with particular emphasis on quantum groups).
Algebras and Representation Theory will publish high level, significant and
original research papers, as well as expository survey papers written by
specialists, wishing to present the `state-of-the-art' of well-defined
subjects or subdomains. Occasionally, special issues on specific subjects
will be published as well, the latter allowing specialists and
non-specialists to quickly get acquainted with new developments and topics
within the field of rings, algebras and their applications. In principle,
for these special issues, guest editors will be invited to use their
expertise to properly select invited contributors.
