    Aims and Scope


    The theory of rings, algebras and their representations has evolved to be a well-defined sub-discipline of general algebra, combining its proper methodology with that of other disciplines, thus leading to a wide variety of application fields, ranging from algebraic geometry or number theory to theoretical physics and robotics. Due to this, many papers in these domains got dispersed in the scientific literature, making it extremely difficult for researchers to keep track of recent developments. Algebras and Representation Theory aims to play a unifying role in this, presenting to its reader both up-to-date information about progress within the field of rings, algebras and their representations as well as clarifying relationships with other fields.
    To realize this aim Algebras and Representation Theory will publish carefully refereed papers relating, in its broadest sense, to the structure of algebras, including Lie algebras and superalgebras, rings of differential operators, group rings and algebras, C*-algebras and Hopf algebras, and and its representation theory, including topics like algebraic combinatorics, categorification and geometrization.
    Algebras and Representation Theory only accepts papers of a high quality covering significant and original research as well as expository survey papers written by specialists, wishing to present the `state-of-the-art' of well-defined subjects or subdomains. Occasionally, special issues on specific subjects will be published, the latter allowing specialists and non-specialists to quickly get acquainted with new developments and topics within the field of rings, algebras and their applications. In principle, for these special issues, guest editors will be invited to use their expertise to properly select invited contributors.

Springer may use the article in whole or in part in electronic form, such as use in databases or data networks for display, print or download to stationary or portable devices. This includes interactive and multimedia use and the right to alter the article to the extent necessary for such use.

    Authors may self-archive the Author's accepted manuscript of their articles on their own websites. Authors may also deposit this version of the article in any repository, provided it is only made publicly available 12 months after official publication or later. He/she may not use the publisher's version (the final article), which is posted on SpringerLink and other Springer websites, for the purpose of self-archiving or deposit. Furthermore, the Author may only post his/her version provided acknowledgement is given to the original source of publication and a link is inserted to the published article on Springer's website. The link must be accompanied by the following text: "The final publication is available at link.springer.com".

    Prior versions of the article published on non-commercial pre-print servers like arXiv.org can remain on these servers and/or can be updated with Author's accepted version. The final published version (in pdf or html/xml format) cannot be used for this purpose. Acknowledgement needs to be given to the final publication and a link must be inserted to the published article on Springer's website, accompanied by the text "The final publication is available at link.springer.com". Author retains the right to use his/her article for his/her further scientific career by including the final published journal article in other publications such as dissertations and postdoctoral qualifications provided acknowledgement is given to the original source of publication.

    Author is requested to use the appropriate DOI for the article. Articles disseminated via link.springer.com are indexed, abstracted and referenced by many abstracting and information services, bibliographic networks, subscription agencies, library networks, and consortia.
