A. Belov, L. Rowen

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


In this survey we consider the impact of Shirshov's Height Theorem on algebra. In order to avoid duplication, we often refer to Kemer's survey article [Kem09] in this volume for further details. Proofs of various quoted results are given in the book [BBL97], and in the authors' book [BR05].
