Tensor powers of an algebra all isomorphic

Let $k$ be a commutative ring with total quotient ring $K$, and let $A$ be a commutative $k$-algebra such that the multiplication map $A \otimes_k A \longrightarrow A$ is an isomorphism. EDIT: Assume ...

Characterizing $\mathbb{Q}[X]$ via a property of its tensor powers

Let $\varphi: \mathbb{Q}[X] \longrightarrow R$ an inclusion of commutative rings. Suppose that the map $$- \circ \varphi: \operatorname{Hom}_{\mathbb{Q}\operatorname{-alg}}(R, R^{\otimes_{\mathbb{Q}} ...

Iterated Reduced Tensor Power of Graded Vector spaces

This might be inappropriate for the MO-level. If so I'll delete it... Suppose $V$ is a $\mathbb{Z}$-graded vector space and $\overline{T}(V):=V \oplus V\otimes V \oplus \otimes^3 V \ldots$ is the ...

Alternating multilinear invariants of GL(n) on End (k^n)

Introduction. Let $k$ be a field of characteristic $0$, and let $n\in\mathbb N$. Let $V=k^n$. The group $\mathrm{GL}_n\left(k\right)=\mathrm{GL} V$ acts on $\mathrm{End} V$ by conjugation, and thus ...

Torsion-free tensor powers

Let $R$ be an integral domain. If $M$ is an $R$-module such that every tensor power of $M$ over $R$ is $R$-torsion-free, then is $M$ necessarily flat as an $R$-module? If not, then does this ...

Decomposition of product of exterior products

Suppose $V$ is a finite dimensional vector space of dimension n. What is the kernel of the map $$\bigwedge^p V \otimes \bigwedge^q V ----> \bigwedge^{p+q} V$$ ? (here $p+q< n$) Thanks.. ...

Can the projection (tensor algebra) -> (symmetric algebra) be forced to split in char. p by factoring out p-th powers?

Question 1 (the weak and simple statement, which, I think, already is wrong): Let $p$ be a prime. Let $k$ be a field with characteristic $p$. For any $k$-vector space $V$, consider the canonical ...

Restricted universal enveloping algebra of Abelian p-Lie algebra

Question: Let $p$ be a prime. Let $k$ be a commutative ring such that $p=0$ in $k$. Let $\mathfrak g$ be an abelian $p$-restricted Lie algebra over $k$. In other words, let $\mathfrak g$ be a ...

What do gerbes and complex powers of line bundles have to do with each other?

We all know how to take integer tensor powers of line bundles. I claim that one should be able to also take fractional or even complex powers of line bundles. These might not be line bundles, but ...
