Supertrace on Weyl algebra

Consider Weyl algebra, i.e. the algebra of $x^i$ and $p_i=\frac{\partial}{\partial x^i}$, its elements are differential operators $F(x,p)$. Weyl algebra is $\mathbb{Z}_2$ graded, hence one ask if ...

Weyl algebras $A_n(k)$ as tensor product of the first Weyl algebra

In afew threads I've read that the Weyl algebra $A_{n+1}(k)$ is isomorphic to the $k$-tensor product of $A_n(k)$ with $A_1(k)$, why is this true?

The Weyl algebra modules which are also rings

Consider the space $C^\infty(\mathbb{R})$. We have on it a natural action of the Weyl algebra generated by $x$ and $d/dx$, where $x$ is the coordinate on $\mathbb{R}$, and there is plenty of Weyl ...

How big can a commutative subalgebra of Weyl algebra be?

Consider the smallest Weyl algebra $A_1=\{q,p; qp-pq=1\}$. It is known that there exist pairs of commuting elements, say $L$ and $M$, that obey various polynomial relations, e.g. elliptic curves. I ...

Modules over rings of differential operators

If $M$ is a left $\mathbb{C}[t] \langle \partial _t \rangle$-module ( a left module over the Weyl algebra), then $\mathrm{Hom}(M,\mathbb{C}[t] \langle \partial _t \rangle)$ is equipped with a ...

Koszul duality between Weyl and Clifford algebras?

Koszul duality Given a finite-dimensional $k$-vector space $V$ (I am happy taking $k = \mathbb{C}$ anywhere in the following if it makes a difference) and a subspace $R \subseteq V \otimes V$, we can ...

A simple proof of the Weyl algebra's rigidity.

I am wondering if there is a nice presentation of the Hochschild cohomology of $A_n$ the Weyl algebra. It is known that $H^m(A_n,A_n)=0$ for $m>0$, and thus it is rigid. A proof can be found in ...

Differential operators preserving the space of harmonic functions (aka higher symmetries of the Laplacian)

The article http://arxiv.org/abs/hep-th/0206233 (published in Ann. of Math. (2) 161 (2005), no. 3) deals with linear differential operators $D$ for which there exists another linear differential ...

Does the image of a differential operator always contain an ideal?

Let $\delta$ denote a non-zero complex algebraic differential operator in a single variable x. That is, it can be written as a sum $$ \delta = \sum_i f_i\partial_x^i$$ where there $f_i$ are complex ...

Depth Zero Ideals in the Homogenized Weyl Algebra

Let $\mathcal{D}$ be the $n$th Weyl algebra $ \mathcal{D} :=k[x_1,...,x_n,\partial_1,...,\partial_n] $, where $\partial_ix_i-x_i\partial_i=1$. Let $\widetilde{\mathcal{D}}$ be its Rees algebra, ...
