 Publisher's Summary
 This book is a comprehensive treatment of the representation theory of maximal CohenMacaulay (MCM) modules over local rings. This topic is at the intersection of commutative algebra, singularity theory, and representations of groups and algebras. Two introductory chapters treat the KrullRemakSchmidt Theorem on uniqueness of directsum decompositions and its failure for modules over local rings. Chapters 310 study the central problem of classifying the rings with only finitely many indecomposable MCM modules up to isomorphism, i.e., rings of finite CM type. The fundamental materialADE/simple singularities, the double branched cover, AuslanderReiten theory, and the BrauerThrall conjecturesis covered clearly and completely. Much of the content has never before appeared in book form. Examples include the representation theory of Artinian pairs and BurbanDrozd's related construction in dimension two, an introduction to the McKay correspondence from the point of view of maximal CohenMacaulay modules, AuslanderBuchweitz's MCM approximation theory, and a careful treatment of nonzero characteristic. The remaining seven chapters present results on bounded and countable CM type and on the representation theory of totally reflexive modules.
