At the crossroads of representation theory, algebraic geometry and finite group theory, this book brings together many of the main concerns of modern algebra, synthesizing the past twenty-five years of research, by including some of the most remarkable achievements in the field. The text is illustrated throughout by many examples, and background material is provided by several introductory chapters on basic results as well as appendices on algebraic geometry and derived categories. The result is an essential introduction for graduate students and a reference for all algebraists.
