**Abstract Algebra with Applications,
Cambridge University Press, 2018**

**Abstract
Algebra with Applications provides a friendly and concise introduction to
algebra, with an emphasis on its uses in the modern world. The first part of
this book covers groups, after some preliminaries on sets, functions,
relations, and induction, and features applications such as public-key
cryptography, Sudoku, the finite Fourier transform, and symmetry in chemistry
and physics. The second part of this book covers rings and fields, and features
applications such as random number generators, error correcting codes, the
Google page rank algorithm, communication networks, and elliptic curve
cryptography. The book's masterful use of colorful figures and images helps
illustrate the applications and concepts in the text. Real-world examples and
exercises will help students contextualize the information. Meant for a
year-long undergraduate course in algebra for mathematics, engineering, and
computer science majors, the only prerequisites are calculus and a bit of
courage when asked to do a short proof.**

**Harmonic Analysis on Symmetric
Spaces—****Higher
Rank Spaces, Positive Definite Matrix Space and Generalizations, 2nd Edition,
Springer, 2016. **

**This book gives an introduction to
harmonic analysis on symmetric spaces, focusing on advanced topics such as higher
rank spaces, positive definite matrix space and generalizations. It is intended
for beginning graduate students in mathematics or researchers in physics or
engineering. As with the earlier book entitled "Harmonic Analysis on
Symmetric Space****—****Euclidean Space, the Sphere, and
the Poincaré Upper Half Plane, the style is informal
with an emphasis on motivation, concrete examples, history, and applications.
The symmetric spaces considered here are quotients X=G/K, where G is a
non-compact real Lie group, such as the general linear group GL(n,R) of all n x n non-singular real matrices, and K=O(n),
the maximal compact subgroup of orthogonal matrices. Other examples are
Siegel's upper half "plane" and the quaternionic
upper half "plane". In the case of the general linear group, one can
identify X with the space P _{n} of n x n
positive definite symmetric matrices.**

**Many corrections and updates are
included in this new edition. Updates include discussions of random matrix theory
and quantum chaos, as well as recent research on modular forms and their
corresponding L-functions in higher rank.
Many applications have been added, such as the solution of the heat
equation on P _{n}, the central limit theorem
of Donald St. P. Richards for P_{n}, results
on densest lattice packing of spheres in Euclidean space, and GL(n)-analogs of the Weyl law for eigenvalues of the
Laplacian in plane domains, as well as computations of analogues of Maass waveforms for GL(3).**

**Topics featured throughout the
text include inversion formulas for Fourier transforms, central limit theorems,
fundamental domains in X for discrete groups Γ (such as the modular group GL(n,Z) of n x n matrices with
integer entries and determinant ±1), connections with the problem of finding
densest lattice packings of spheres in Euclidean space, automorphic forms, Hecke operators, L-functions, and the Selberg
trace formula and its applications in spectral theory as well as number theory.**

the projection of (t,v,x _{1},x_{2},x_{3}) onto the
x-coordinates in the Grenier fundamental domain (see
page 151 of the old edition)**

**Harmonic Analysis on Symmetric
Spaces—Euclidean Space, the Sphere, and the Poincaré Upper Half-Plane, 2nd
Edition, Springer, NY, 2013**

**The 2nd edition includes
corrections, new topics, and updates. It
is intended for beginning graduate students in mathematics and statistics, or
researchers in physics or engineering.
The prerequisites are minimized and the style is informal, with emphasis
on motivation, concrete examples, history and applications in mathematics,
statistics, physics, and engineering.
Topics include: inversion formulas for Fourier transforms, the Radon
transform, NonEuclidean geometry, Poisson's summation
formula, fundamental domains for discrete groups, tessellations of symmetric
spaces, special functions, modular forms, Maass wave
forms, the Selberg trace formula, finite analogues of symmetric spaces. Applications include: the central limit
theorem, CAT scans, microwave engineering, the hydrogen atom, expander graphs,
crystals and quasicrystals, wavelets, modular knots, L-functions, zeta
functions, spectral theory of the Laplacian.

**The Old
Editions.**

*Harmonic Analysis on Symmetric
Spaces and Applications, Vols. **I, II***, Springer-Verlag, N.Y., 1985, 1988****. **

**Volume 1 gives an introduction to
harmonic analysis on the simplest symmetric spaces - Euclidean space, the
sphere, and the Poincaré upper half plane H and fundamental domains for
discrete groups of isometries such as SL(2,Z) in the
case of H. The emphasis is on examples, applications, history. The intention is
to be a friendly introduction for non-experts.**

**Volume 2 concerns higher rank
symmetric spaces and their fundamental domains for discrete groups of
isometries. Emphasis is on the general linear group G=GL(n,R) of invertible nxn real
matrices and its symmetric space G/K which we identify with the space P _{n}
of positive definite nxn real symmetric matrices.
Applications in multivariate statistics and the geometry of numbers are
considered. **

**Book
Description **

**This book gives a friendly introduction to Fourier analysis on finite
groups, both commutative and non-commutative. Aimed at students in mathematics,
engineering and the physical sciences, it examines the theory of finite groups
in a manner that is both accessible to the beginner and suitable for graduate
research. With applications in chemistry, error-correcting codes, data
analysis, graph theory, number theory and probability, the book presents a
concrete approach to abstract group theory through applied examples, pictures
and computer experiments. In the first part, the author parallels
the development of Fourier analysis on the real line and the circle, and then
moves on to analogues of higher dimensional Euclidean space. The second part
emphasizes matrix groups such as the Heisenberg group of upper triangular 2x2 matrices.
The book concludes with an introduction to zeta functions on finite graphs via
the trace formula. **

related topics such as Ramanujan graphs, the trace formula on trees. The hope
was to emphasize connections between various fields such as graph theory,
topology, mathematical physics, number theory, dynamical systems. One example
is the connection between graph zeta functions and Jones polynomials of knots
found by Lin and Wang. The conference website is http://www.uncwil.edu/mathconf/.

**Short Biography**

**AUDREY TERRAS received her B.S. degree in Mathematics from
the University of Maryland, College Park in 1964, where she was inspired by the
lectures of Sigekatu Kuroda to become a number
theorist. She was particularly impressed by the use of analysis (in particular
using zeta functions and multiple integrals) to derive algebraic results. She
received her M.A. (1966) and Ph.D. (1970) from Yale University. In 1972 she became an assistant professor of
mathematics at the University of California, San Diego. She became a full
professor at U.C.S.D. in 1983. She retired in 2010. She has had 25 Ph.D.
students. She is a fellow of the Association for Women in Mathematics, the
American Mathematical Society, and the American Association for the Advancement
of Science, has served on the Council of the American Mathematical Society,
gave the 2008 Noether lecture of the Association for
Women in Mathematics. She has published 5 books, helped to edit another, and
published lots of research papers. Her research interests include number
theory, harmonic analysis on symmetric spaces and finite groups (including
applications), special functions, algebraic graph theory, especially zeta
functions of graphs, arithmetical quantum chaos, and Selberg’s
trace formula. ****When
lecturing on mathematics, she believes it is important to give examples,
applications and colorful pictures. **
