Referring for background notions to Bourbakis Commutative Algebra (English edition Springer-Verlag 1988), the book focusses on the various dimension theories and theorems on mulitplicities of intersections with the Cartan-Eilenberg functor Tor as the central concept. The main results are the decomposition theorems, theorems of Cohen-Seidenberg, the normalisation of rings of polynomials, dimension (in the sense of Krull) and characteristic polynomials (in the sense of Hilbert-Samuel).
