Full Text 
Block theory is a part of the theory of modular representation of finite groups and deals with the algebraic structure of blocks. In this volume Burkhard Külshammer starts with the classical structure theory of finite dimensional algebras, and leads up to Puigs main result on the structure of the so called nilpotent blocks, which he discusses in the final chapter. All the proofs in the text are given clearly and in full detail, and suggestions for further reading are also included. For researchers and graduate students interested in group theory or representation theory, this book will form an excellent self contained introduction to the theory of blocks.
