More accurately, let $\displaystyle A=\sum_{i=0}^{\infty}A_i$ be a finitely generated graded algebra over say $\mathbb{Q}$ but $\dim A_i=\infty$ for each $i.$ Is it possible?

    $\begingroup$ Think about how you can generate the elements of $A_1$ if it is infinite-dimensional. $\endgroup$ – Mariano Suárez-Álvarez Oct 5 '10 at 19:00
  • $\begingroup$ This question has already been answered, so maybe it's not that important, but the title is wrong. It says "example of a not finitely generated graded algebra", when the question asks for a finitely generated graded algebra. $\endgroup$ – arsmath Oct 16 '10 at 16:56
  • $\begingroup$ yes, I already correct it $\endgroup$ – Melania Oct 17 '10 at 10:23

$\mathbb Q[x,y]$ with $x$ in degree 0, and $y$ in degree 1.

If you want your generators to be in positive degrees, then what you're asking for is impossible.
