The invariant thought of non-reductive teams has its roots within the nineteenth century yet has visible a few very fascinating advancements long ago 20 years. This booklet is an exposition of numerous similar issues together with observable subgroups, brought on modules, maximal unipotent subgroups of reductive teams and the tactic of U-invariants, and the complexity of an motion. a lot of this fabric has no longer seemed formerly in publication shape. The exposition assumes a uncomplicated wisdom of algebraic teams after which develops every one subject systematically with purposes to invariant conception. routines are incorporated in addition to many examples, a few of that are concerning geometry and physics.

Here's an advent to the idea of quantum teams with emphasis at the amazing connections with knot thought and Drinfeld's contemporary basic contributions. It provides the quantum teams hooked up to SL2 in addition to the fundamental techniques of the idea of Hopf algebras. assurance additionally specializes in Hopf algebras that produce options of the Yang-Baxter equation and gives an account of Drinfeld's based therapy of the monodromy of the Knizhnik-Zamolodchikov equations.
