Robert G. Underwood, MS, PhD, is a professor of Mathematics at Auburn University at Montgomery and author of Introduction to Hopf Algebras (c) Springer 2011. The author's course notes which contribute strongly to this present book have been used in his modern algebra class since 2008.
"The goal of the book under review is to introduce graduate students to some basic results on coalgebras, bialgebras, Hopf algebras, and their applications. The book may be used as the main text or as a supplementary text for a graduate course. ... This book should be very useful as a first introduction for someone who wants to learn about Hopf algebras and their applications." (Joerg Feldvoss, zbMATH 1341.16034, 2016)
