Intersection of Maximal Left Ideals with Finite Dimensional Quotient

Let $\Gamma$ be a finitely generated group and let $A=\mathbb{C}[\Gamma]$ be the corresponding group algebra over $\mathbb{C}$. Let $X$ be the set of all maximal left ideals of $A$ and let $X_0=\{I ...

Gröbner/SAGBI bases for non-commutative setting

It is well known that SAGBI/Gröbner bases are important for commutative and non-commutative algebra. The references for commutative scenery is ample and vast, but I am in trouble to find a good ...

An example where finitistic dimension does not equal right global dimension?

The (right) big finitistic dimension of a ring is Findim$(R) =$ sup{proj.dim(M) | $M$ a right $R$-module of finite projective dimension}. The (right) little finitistic dimension findim$(R)$ is the sup ...

Jacobson radical = intersection of all maximal two-sided ideals

I'm embarassed to ask this question, but the literature on noncommutative rings seems to give this a berth as if it was absolutely trivial and not worth discussing, and I can't prove it, so all I can ...

How canonical is the triangular decomposition of a rational Cherednik algebra?

Introduction: Let $V$ be a finite-dimensional $\mathbb{C}$-vector space, let $G \leq \mathrm{GL}(V)$ be a finite subgroup and let $\kappa:V \times V \rightarrow \mathbb{C}G$ be an alternating bilinear ...

when are algebras quiver algebras ?

Good Morning from Belgium, I'm no stranger to the mantra that quiver-algebras are an extremely powerful tool (see for example the representation theory of finite dimensional algebras). But what is a ...

construct scheme from quivers?

I heard from some guys working in noncommutative geometry talking about the idea that one can construct the noncommutative space from quivers. I feel it is rather interesting. However, I can not image ...

Morita equivalence and moduli problems

Two rings $A$ and $B$ are said to be Morita equivalent if the category of modules over $A$ and $B$ are equivalent as additive categories. (Here I'm considering left modules). Ex: $M_n(R)$ (the algebra ...

Gelfand-Naimark from the category-theoretic point of view

I was thinking about the Gelfand-Naimark theorem asserting the isometric * isomorphism between a commutative C* algebra (with unit) A and the C* algebra of continuous complex-valued functions on its ...
