This volume is a collection of papers by Robert Steinberg. It contains all of his published papers on group theory, including those on ``special representations'' (now called Steinberg representations), tensor products of representations, finite reflection groups, regular elements of algebraic groups, Galois cohomology, universal extensions, etc. At the end of the book, there is a section called ``Comments on the Papers''. The comments by Steinberg explain how ideas and results have evolved and been used since they first appeared.
In 1996 the AMS awarded Goro Shimura the Steele Prize for Lifetime Achievement :" To Goro Shimura for his important and extensive work on arithmetical geometry and automorphic forms; concepts introduced by him were often seminal, and fertile ground for new developments, as witnessed by the many notations in number theory that carry his name and that have long been familiar to workers in the field." 103 of Shimura ́s most important papers are collected in four volumes. Volume III contains his mathematical papers from 1978 to 1988 and some notes to the articles.
This book consists in a reprint of papers dealing mostly with Grecoroman philosophy, ranging from the 5th century BC to the 6th century AD, and concerned mainly with the Presocratics, Plato, Aristotle, the Early Academy, the Platonic and Aristotelian later traditions.
Robert Aumann's groundbreaking career in game theory has spanned over 35 years. These two volumes provide convenient access to all of his major research—from his doctoral dissertation in 1956 to papers as recent as January 1995. Threaded through all of Aumann's work (symbolized in his thesis on knots) is the study of relationships between different ideas, between different phenomena, and between ideas and phenomena. "When you look closely at one scientific idea," writes Aumann, "you find it hitched to all others. It is these hitches that I have tried to study." The papers are organized in several categories: general, knot theory, decision theory (utility and subjective probability), strategic games, coalitional games, and mathematical methods. Aumann has written an introduction to each of these groups that briefly describes the content and background of each paper, including the motivation and the research process, and relates it to other work in the collection and to work by others. There is also a citation index that allows readers to trace the considerable body of literature which cites Aumann's own work.
Volumes I-VI of the Collected Papers of Charles Sanders Peirce are being reissued in response to a growing interest in Peirce's thought--a development that was prophesied by John Dewey when he reviewed the first volume of these papers on their appearance in 1931. Writing in The New Republic, Mr. Dewey said, "Nothing much will happen in philosophy as long as a main object among philosophers is defense of some formulated historical position. I do not know of any other thinker more calculated than Peirce to give emancipation from the intellectual fortifications of the past and to arouse a fresh imagination."
