SUMMARY

This book is devoted to a study of the unit groups of orders in skew fields, finite dimensional and central over the rational field; it thereby belongs to the field of noncommutative arithmetic. Its purpose is a synopsis of results and methods, including full proofs of the most important results. It is addressed to researchers in number theory and arithmetic groups
