Presenting the collaborations of over thirty
international experts in the latest developments in pure and
applied mathematics, this volume serves as an anthology of research with a
common basis in algebra, functional analysis and their applications.
Special attention is devoted to non-commutative algebras, non-associative
algebras, operator theory and ring and module theory. These themes are
relevant in research and development in coding theory, cryptography and quantum
The topics in this volume were presented at the Workshop on Non-Associative
& Non-Commutative Algebra and Operator Theory, held May
23—25, 2014 at Cheikh Anta Diop University in Dakar, Senegal in honor
of Professor Amin Kaidi. The workshop was hosted by the
university's Laboratory of Algebra,
Cryptology, Algebraic Geometry and Applications, in cooperation with
the University of Almería and the University of Málaga. Dr.
Kaidi's work focuses on non-associative rings and algebras, operator theory and
functional analysis, and he has served as a mentor to a generation of
mathematicians in Senegal and around the world.
