This volume is divided into three parts. Part I provides the foundations of the theory of modular representations. Special attention is drawn to the Brauer-Swan theory and the theory of Brauer characters. A detailed investigation of quadratic, symplectic and symmetric modules is also provided. Part II is devoted entirely to the Green theory: vertices and sources, the Green correspondence, the Green ring, etc. In Part III, permutation modules are investigated with an emphasis on the study of p-permutation modules and Burnside rings.The material is developed with sufficient attention to detail so that it can easily be read by the novice, although its chief appeal will be to specialists. A number of the results presented in this volume have almost certainly never been published before.
