 Publisher's Summary
 A monomial order ideal is a finite collection $X$ of (monic) monomials such that, whenever $M\in X$ and $N$ divides $M$, then $N\in X$. Hence $X$ is a poset, where the partial order is given by divisibility. If all, say $t$, maximal monomials of $X$ have the same degree, then $X$ is pure (of type $t$). A pure $O$sequence is the vector, $\underline{h}=(h_0=1, h_1, ..., h_e)$, counting the monomials of $X$ in each degree. Equivalently, pure $O$sequences can be characterized as the $f$vectors of pure multicomplexes, or, in the language of commutative algebra, as the $h$vectors of monomial Artinian level algebras. Pure $O$sequences had their origin in one of the early works of Stanley's in this area, and have since played a significant role in at least three different disciplines: the study of simplicial complexes and their $f$vectors, the theory of level algebras, and the theory of matroids. This monograph is intended to be the first systematic study of the theory of pure $O$sequences.
