Item description for Compositions of Quadratic Forms (De Gruyter Expositions in Mathematics) by Daniel B. Shapiro...

The central topic of this book is the theorem of Hurwitz and Radon concerning composition formulas for sums of squares, first proved in the 1920's. Techniques from algebra and topology are used to generalize that theorem in several directions.

The text includes worked examples and many exercises, which develop still more variations of the central topic. The main audience is people who have had some graduate courses in abstract algebra, but many sections of the book are accessible to anyone with some training in linear algebra. Several major topics in this book will be of interest to students of topology and geometry. The author has attempted to make the presen-tation as clear and as elementary as possible.

Reviews - What do customers think about Compositions of Quadratic Forms (De Gruyter Expositions in Mathematics)?

i'm the first  Jul 22, 2001
well,i thought it was both enlightening and at the same time educational-a rare quality in todays hyperbole-filled books. Well reasearched and documented, i thought the author did a splendid job of portraying the real side of Quadratic forms while delving into the theoretical captured beautifully in a form fitting for accolades and deserves recognition as a book truuly beyond its time, while at the same time captured the pulse of the mathmatical community, in a language for everyone, revealing the depth and cunning of the authors new- age style. It definitely awnsered all my questions on the complexities of Quadratic forms and even addressed some i didn't even know i had.
