OK, I am looking at Cartan and Eilenberg Homological Algebra book (, printing). Chapter V.9, p97 they define functors T(-,-) of type L. Homological Algebra has now reached into almost every corner of modern mathematics. It started with the authored by H. Cartan and S. Eilenberg () [ 9].

Princeton University Press; Revised ed. Home Questions Tags Users Unanswered. Here’s how restrictions apply. This leads in a natural way to the study of “functors” and of their “derived functors. Post as a guest Name. If not, somebody kindly enlighten me, I will treat you with a coffee which I myself may be missing, if I am not seeing this Warehouse Deals Open-Box Discounts.

Get to Know Us. Earlier in the text, they have L and R as functors. Whereas, if your trying to learn the subject matter for your own benefit or for research reasons, then I would not recommend this text. Write a customer review. For those of you who are not new to the field then I am sure you already own your own copy, so enjoy. It is time to give up the old and bring in the up to date and more relavent texts such as Weibel’s.

Cartan–Eilenberg resolution

I must be completely missing the subtlety there for I am even at a loss with their claim that they “introduce the following FOUR types of functors” I see only two types. Share your thoughts with other customers.

I cannot see logic in defining these two notions for the contravar, covar case. Would you like to tell us about a lower price? For those of you who are new to the field, my suggestion is to stay far away from this text. Email Required, but eilnberg shown. Both were founding members of the Bourbaki and both received the Wolf Prize in Mathematics.

Vermani’s text or Rotmans text instead. Be the first to review this item Amazon Bestsellers Rank: Yes, it is nice to go back and read the works of the masters, the pioneers and wrap yourself up in a nice warm blanket of original and new thought.

The invasion of algebra had occurred on three fronts through the construction of cohomology theories for groups, Lie algebras, and associative algebras. Why read a text, especially as an introduction, whose notation and basic terminology is extinct?

Subsequently, each of the three theories is singled out by a suitable specialization, and its specific properties are studied. If this is the error I think it is and a bad one toohas it been corrected subsequently and where? See Complete Table of Contents.

Yes, this is a landmark book and yes this book has served many a fine mathematician but, let’s be honest here, this book is out dated. Sure this text deserves 5 stars for being well written, for being a landmark text and for many other reasons but, this texts hay day has gone and went. Now, looking at the proof of this proposition, they assume that A is a direct sum homolofical C is a direct product and prove that T A,C is a direct product, which is correct.


My problem is that I do not see the inner logic in their notation or definitions. When homologicl book was written, methods of algebraic topology had caused revolutions in the world of pure algebra. Since the creation of this book there have been both advances within the field and the core terminology has been agreed upon.

To clarify the advances that had been made, Cartan and Eilenberg tried to unify the fields and to construct the framework of a fully fledged theory. See all free Kindle reading apps. From these, “higher order” derived of operations are obtained, which enjoy all the properties usually attributed to homology theories.

This book presents a single homology and also cohomology theory that embodies all three; a large number of results is thus established in a general framework. Read more Read less.
