Topics in algebra (non-commutative)
T.-Y. Lam, "A First Course in Noncommutative Rings"
We will consider theory noncommutative rings and their applications to various areas including noncommutative symmetric functions, birational algebraic geometry, the Laurent phenomenon and integrable systems. In addition to the classical book by T.Y. Lam we will use a selection of papers by I. Gelfand and others.
