Written by one of the subject’s foremost experts, this book focuses on the central developments and modern methods of the advanced theory of abelian groups, while remaining accessible, as an introduction and reference, to the non-specialist. It provides a coherent source for results scattered throughout the research literature with lots of new proofs.

The presentation highlights major trends that have radically changed the modern character of the subject, in particular, the use of homological methods in the structure theory of various classes of abelian groups, and the use of advanced set-theoretical methods in the study of un decidability problems. The treatment of the latter trend includes Shelah’s seminal work on the un decidability in ZFC of Whitehead’s Problem; while the treatment of the former trend includes an extensive (but non-exhaustive) study of p-groups, torsion-free groups, mixed groups and important classes of groups arising from ring theory. To prepare the reader to tackle these topics, the book reviews the fundamentals of abelian group theory and provides some background material from category theory, set theory, topology and homological algebra.

An abundance of exercises are included to test the reader’s comprehension, and to explore noteworthy extensions and related sidelines of the main topics. A list of open problems and questions, in each chapter, invite the reader to take an active part in the subject’s further development.

About the Author:

László Fuchs is the Evelyn and John G. Phillips Distinguished Professor Emeritus in Mathematics at Tulane University. He was awarded the Kossuth Prize in 1953 and is a foreign member of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences.

Review:

“This is an amazing, fairly comprehensive account of the present state of the theory of abelian groups. ... I deem Abelian groups a ‘must have’ for any algebraist, especially those working with rings and modules.” (Manfred Dugas, Mathematical Reviews, December, 2016)
