Item description for Algebra in the Stone-Cech Compactification: Theory and Applications (De Gruyter Expositions in Mathematics, 27) (De Gruyter Expositions in Mathematics) by Neil Hindman...
A study of the algebraic properties of compact right topological semigroups in general and the Stone--Cech compactification of a discrete semigroup in particular. Several powerful applications to combinatorics, primarily to the branch of combinatorics known as Ramsey Theory, are given. Connections with topological dynamics and ergodic theory are also presented.
The text is essentially self-contained and does not require any prior mathematical expertise beyond the knowledge of the basic concepts of algebra, analysis, and topology covered in the first year of graduate school. Most of the material presented is based on results that have so far only been available in research journals. In addition, the book contains a number of new results that have not been previously published elsewhere.
