Is it possible ?


1 Answer 1


Rather obviously yes.

Let $A$ be the algebra over the field $K$ generated by elements $a_1,a_2,\ldots,$ with $a_i$ in dimension $i$ and with $a_ia_j=0$ for all $i$ and $j$. This is an incredibly uninteresting example, but since each graded piece is one-dimensional, its Poincare series is $\sum_{n=0}^\infty t^n=1/(1-t)$.

    $\begingroup$ @Melania: how about start as Robin did, and then kill all $a_ia_ja_k$? $\endgroup$ Sep 29, 2010 at 21:23
  • $\begingroup$ Yes..The Poincare series will be $\dfrac{1}{(1-t)(1-t^2)}.$ Thanks! $\endgroup$
