Quasi-Frobenius Rings


This book provides an elementary, complete account of quasi-Frobenius rings at a level allowing researchers and graduate students to gain entry to the field. A ring is called quasi-Frobenius if it is "right" or "left" selfinjective, and "right" or "left" artinian (all four combinations are equivalent). The study of these rings grew out of the theory of representations of a finite group as a group of matrices over a field, and the present extent of the theory is wide-ranging.

'Summing up, this book is a research monograph with up-to-date information on QF-rings and provides a self-contained and very readable introduction to the topics …'. Zentralblatt MATH

'The authors have achieved two seemingly incompatible goals: to provide an elementary introduction to the classical theory of quasi-Frobenius rings, and to bring the reader up to the current research in the field. This makes the book interesting both for graduate students and researchers in contemporary module theory.' EMS Newsletter
