 This volume presents the proceedings of the international conference on "Recent Progress in Algebra" that was held at the Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (KAIST) and Korea Institute for Advanced Study (KIAS). It brought together experts in the field to discuss progress in algebra, combinatorics, algebraic geometry and number theory. This book contains selected papers contributed by conference participants. The papers cover a wide range of topics and reflect the current state of research in modern algebra.
