Noncommutative local algebra

  • A. L. Rosenberg


The main purpose of this work is to introduce the first notions of noncommutative algebraic geometry — the spectrum of an abelian category, localizations at points of the spectrum, canonical topologies, supports, associated points etc. — and to study their basic properties.
