This introduction to polynomial rings, Gröbner bases and applications bridges the gap in the literature between theory and actual computation. It details numerous applications, covering fields as disparate as algebraic geometry and financial markets. To aid in a full understanding of these applications, more than 40 tutorials illustrate how the theory can be used. The book also includes many exercises, both theoretical and practical.

From the Back Cover:

This is a book about Gröbner bases and their applications. It contains 3 chapters, 20 sections, 44 tutorials, 165 exercises, and numerous further amusements.

It is going to help you bridge the gap between theoretical computer algebra and actual computation. We hope you will have as much fun reading it as the authors had writing it!

From the reviews:

"This is one of the most refreshing mathematical books I have ever held in my hands. This is academic teaching at its best; if I had not seen it, I would not have believed that it could be done so well." (Hans Stetter, IMN - Internationale Mathematische Nachrichten 2003)

"Every paragraph of the book shows how much the authors have enjoyed translating into printed matter the outcome of a long, large, deep and personal relation with computationally oriented commutative algebra. And the result is a non-standard, elementary and self-contained introduction to the theory of Gröbner bases and its applications." (Laureano González-Vega and Tomás Recio, ACM SIGSAM Bulletin 2004)

"The style of this book merits a comment. Each section begins with a quotation and an overview in which "Italian imagination overtakes German rigor". These introductions and the following main bodies of each section are well written, engaging and often amusing. The book is a pleasure to read." (John Little, Mathematical Reviews 2001)

Review:

From the reviews:

"... This is one of the most refreshing mathematical books I have ever held in my hands. The authors do not believe in teaching by spreading out the material, but they introduce it via questions and discussions, they explore it in an intuitive fashion, exercise it through well-chosen examples, and start the reader on his own expeditions through numerous "tutorials", i.e., guided projects. This is academic teaching at its best: if I had not seen it, I should not have believed that it can be done so well. ... In conclusion, this book gives students a stimulating introduction to commutative algebra very much geared to their need, and it provides numerous useful ideas to those who teach the subject." (H.Stetter, IMN - Internationale Mathematische Nachrichten 2003, Vol. 57, Issue 193)

"This account of polynomial rings, Gröbner bases and applications such as computations of syzygies is written from the point of view of a computer user; as a result, it often provides new insights. The exercises and tutorials (how to work with CoCoA) add to the usefulness of the volume." (Mathematika 48, 2001)

"Das Buch ist in einem aufmunternd lockeren Stil geschrieben und für Studierende gut zum Selbststudium geeignet. Der präsentierte Stoff wird durch viele Beispiele und Übungsaufgaben (teilweise mit Anleitungen im Anhang) ergänzt. Weiter sind in jedem Abschnitt sorgfältig ausgearbeitete Tutorials angefügt, die zur Benutzung von Computeralgebrasystemen, insbesondere CoCoA, anregen sollen." (Computeralgebra-Rundbrief, Nr. 28, März 2001)

"Four years ago the authors published the first volume of a projected seris about computational commutative algebra which "took three years of intense work just to fill three centimeters of your bookshelf". Now they have gifted us with the second volume, and they say that "the completion of this volume took four years and it is about four centimeters thick. Thus we have a confirmed invariant which governs our writing: our velocity is one centimeter per year." These quotations from the foreword of the book give a clue of how amusing it is, and also how mathematically solid it is.

In this second volume the authors continue with the same style as the first, an almost humorous one. [...]

It was a pleasure to review this nice book but, as always, the equilibrium of the world depends on good and bad things, and the "bad thing" is the authors' decision to not write a third volume. In their own words: "Alas, we have to inform you that this is absolutely and definitely the second and last volume of the trilogy." Fortunately, these two volumes collect so large an amount of information and inspiration that we can say the authors actually fulfilled our expectations."

Paulo F. Machado, Mathematical Review Clippings 2006h

"An excellent, non-standard, elementary and self-contained introduction to the theory of Gröbner bases and its applications ... . Moreover, the style is very friendly and relaxing ... . As it is now, this book can be used either to introduce the theory of Gröbner bases to students with a basic knowledge of algebra or to provide a first introduction to commutative algebra ... ." (Laureano Gonzélez-Vega and Tomás Recio, ACM SIGSAM Bulletin, Vol. 38 (2), 2004)
