SUMMARY

This volume collects some of the survey lectures delivered at the Microยญ program on Noncommutative Rings held at MSRI, July 10-21, 1989. While the program was concerned with recent advances in ring theory, it also had as an important component lectures on related areas of mathematics where ring theory might be expected to have an impact. Thus, there are lectures of S. P. Smith on quantum groups and Marc Riยญ effel on algebraic aspects of quantum field theory. Martin Lorenz and Donยญ ald Passman consider in their lectures various aspects of crossed products: homological and K-theoretic to group actions. Kenneth Brown presents the "modern" theory of Noetherian rings and localization. These contributions as well as the others not presented here show that ring theory remains a vigorous and useful area. The planning and organization of the program were done by the underยญ signed and the late Robert Warfield. His illness prevented his attendance at the meeting. It is to him we dedicate this volume. The organizers wish to extend their thanks to Irving Kaplansky, Director of MSRI, and the staff for all of their efforts in making this conference such a success.
