Requiring only some understanding of homological algebra and commutative ring theory, this book will give those who have encountered Grothendieck residues in geometry or complex analysis a better understanding of residues, as well as an appreciation of Hochschild homology. While numerous papers have treated the topic of residues from a variety of viewpoints, no books have addressed this topic. The author fills this gap by using Hochschild homology to provide a natural, general, and easily accessible approach to residues, and by identifying connections with other treatments of residues. Developing a theory of the Grothendieck symbol by means of elementary homological and commutative algebra, the author derives residues from a simple pairing between Hochschild homology and cohomology groups, and defines all concepts along the way. The author also establishes some functorial properties and introduces certain trace and cotrace maps with potential use in other contexts.
