This book gives a nice overview of the diversity of current trends in computational and statistical group theory. It presents the latest research and a number of specific topics, such as growth, black box groups, measures on groups, product replacement algorithms, quantum automata, and more. It includes contributions by speakers at AMS Special Sessions at The University of Nevada (Las Vegas) and the Stevens Institute of Technology (Hoboken, NJ).

It is suitable for graduate students and research mathematicians interested in group theory.


Graduate students and research mathematicians interested in group theory.
