Suitable for advanced undergraduates and graduate students of mathematics, the text examines crossed products and group-graded rings, delta methods and semiprime rings, the symmetric ring of quotients, and prime ideals, both in terms of finite and Noetherian cases. Additional topics include group actions and fixed rings, group actions and Galois theory, Grothendieck groups and induced modules, and zero divisors and idempotents.
