Reviews

"Overall, the book is a very valuable addition to the literature on the Baum-Connes conjecture. It is highly recommended reading for anyone interested in learning more about the conjecture, or who does research in areas related to it. Of course, the reader who wants to be an expert will eventually have to consult the original literature, but such is inevitable in a book of this size (around 100 pages) and not necessarily a bad thing."
