About the authors

Ioannis Emmanouil was initiated to mathematics in Athens, Greece and then moved to Berkeley, where he studied homological algebra, algebraic geometry and K-theory with Mariusz Wodzicki. After receiving his Ph.D. from Berkeley in 1994, he taught for three years at the University of Michigan as a Hildebrandt Assistant Professor. He moved back to Europe in 1997 and after a year at IHES, returned to Greece in 1998. At present, he is a member of the faculty of the University of Athens.

Reviews

From the reviews:

"The study of idempotent elements in the group algebras originates from geometric and analytic considerations. … This book provides an introduction to the study of these problems for graduate students and researchers … . collects and presents in a systematic way basic techniques and important results that have been obtained during the past few decades. … The book is suitable for independent study … . Moreover, all chapters and appendices finish with a sufficient number of exercises that also increase the quality of the book." (S. V. Mihovski, Zentralblatt MATH, Vol. 1093 (19), 2006)
