I agree this is funny as a joke, but I would have appreciated the authour’s effort in listing a detailed account of the lemma as in “Algebra” by Robert Ash. The book is full of illustrative examples and exercises. Secondly, one must be able to compute these things using a separate language: This was the first book I ever read on homological algebra, and I loved it.
Who likes to balance Tor by hand? Although there are many typos, I find “Methods” excellent for conveying the big picture. Book ratings by Goodreads. Algebra Serge Lang Limited preview – Sign up using Facebook.
An Introduction to Homological Algebra
First, one must learn the language of Ext and Tor. The author has also included material about homotopical algebra, alias K-theory.
I heard that they recently published an updated edition with many of the typos fixed. Description Graduate mathematics students will find this book an easy-to-follow, step-by-step guide to the subject. An Introduction to Homological Algebra. It seems difficult to find good introductions that are freely available online, but a nice set of lecture notes can be be found on Schapira’s web page, here.
Learning Homological Algebra is a two-stage affair. My library Help Advanced Book Search. Rotman No preview available – AndersonKent R.

Rotman’s book gives a treatment of homological algebra which approaches the subject in terms of its origins in algebraic topology. It clearly and concisely covers a surprising number of topics in homological algebra. There are some real golden nuggets of mathematics hidden in its pages. An Introduction to Manifolds Loring W.
As usual, the rule is one reference per post. Riemannian Geometry Sylvestre Gallot. The basic properties of spectral sequences are developed using exact couples.
Also whether your motivation for the subject comes from topology, algebra, representation theory, Lie Groups Claudio Procesi.
Back cover copy With a wealth of examples as well as abundant applications to Algebra, this is a must-read work: It was written soon after Cartan and Eilenberg, which probably explains the old-fashioned style. Email Dotman, but never shown. This change makes sense pe- gogically, for there has been a change in the mathematics population since ; today, virtually all mathematics graduate students have learned so- thing about functors and categories, and so I can now take the categorical viewpoint more seriously.
