About the Author

Ralf Schiffler is a Professor in the Department of Mathematics at the University of Connecticut.


"This book is an excellent text for undergraduates or beginning graduate students. The virtues of the book can be amplified by an instructor willing to go faster for those who have some prior exposure to basic algebra, or to go slower for students starting ab ovo. Secondly, a non-expert (in representation theory of quivers) may also benefit from this book in several ways ... . a reader will enjoy the clear and concise overview preceding each chapter and section." (Alex Martsinkovsky, Mathematical Reviews, February, 2016)

"The book under review is an elementary introduction to the diagrammatic or quiver approach to the representation theory of finite-dimensional algebras. It is perhaps the first such textbook addressed to advanced undergraduates or beginning graduate students. ... Teaching a course from this book should be a pleasant experience. Sets of problems are provided at the end of every one of its chapters, and little notes point to the literature. For a motivated student, the book is well suited for self-study." (Felipe Zaldivar, MAA Reviews, December, 2014)
