In August 1989, greater than seven hundred Soviet algebraists and greater than two hundred international mathematicians convened in Novosibirsk within the former Soviet Union for the overseas convention on Algebra. devoted to the reminiscence of A. I. Mal'cev, the good Russian algebraist and truth seeker, the convention marked the 1st time because the overseas Congress of Mathematicians used to be held in Moscow in 1966 that Soviet algebraists may perhaps meet with a good number of their overseas colleagues. This quantity includes the lawsuits from this historical convention. a number of the Soviet participants to this quantity usually are not simply to be had from different resources. a few of the significant figures within the box, together with P. M. Cohn, P. Gabriel, N. Jacobson, E. R. Kolchin, and V. Platonov, contributed to this quantity. The papers span a vast diversity of components together with teams, Lie algebras, associative and nonassociative jewelry, fields and skew fields, differential algebra, common algebra, different types, combinatorics, good judgment, algebraic geometry, topology, and mathematical physics.
