### Faithfully injective projective modules

An $R$-module I is called faithfully injective if it is injective and the functor $Hom_R(-, I)$ has the image of a complex being exact if and only if the original complex is exact. I wonder if it is ...

### Does the center of any finitely generated associative algebra over a field have finite type?

Consider the monoid algebra $R:=K\langle x_1,\dots,x_n\rangle$ generated by $n$ letters $x_1,\dots,x_n$ for $n>1$ over field $K$. Equivalently, $R$ is the tensor algebra $T(V)$ on the $n$-...

### Points and algebraic geometry on the quantum plane

The "quantum plane" is the "space" of the algebra $A=\Bbbk\langle X,Y\rangle/(YX-qXY)$, for a scalar $q$ (e.g. $\Bbbk=\mathbb C(q)$). I would like to know how much algebraic ...

### How to compute the associated reduced ring for this finitely generated algebra?

Let $k$ be a field, $m$ be a positive integer and $R$ be the subring $k[x,xy,xy^2,…,xy^m]$ of the polynomial ring $k[x,y]$. Let $B$ be the quotient ring $R/xR$. Then $B$ is the finitely generated $k$-...

### Structure and representation of a non-homogeneous quadratic algebra

Let $m$ be a positive integer and $s$ be a fixed $m\times m$ matrix. Let $U$ be the unital associative algebra (over $\mathbb{C}$) generated by $\{u^i_{j}\}_{1\leq i,j\leq m}$ quotient over the ...

### Bar constructions and pushouts

Suppose that $\mathsf S$ is a span of associative algebras (or, more generally, if you'd like, any type of object admitting a bar-cobar formalism) and let $A$ be its pushout. Is there any hope of ...

### Is there a standard reference for: taking projective covers of simple modules commutes with finite Galois field extensions?

Let $\Lambda$ be an Artin algebra over a finite field $k$. Is there a standard reference for the fact that taking projective covers of simple $\Lambda$-modules commutes with finite Galois field ...

### Non-rigid modules and Auslander-Reiten quiver

I have a question about proving that a module is non-rigid using Auslander-Reiten quiver. Suppose that we have some algebra $A$ and the components of its Auslander-Reiten quivers are tubes like the ...

### A sufficient condition for automorphism of an exact sequence

I asked A sufficient condition for Automorphism of an exact sequence earlier on Math.StackExchange but did not get any response so am posting it here. I am given the following commutative diagram with ...

### A problem about extensions of division rings

For a division ring $D$ with center field $F:=Z(D)$ such that $\dim_F D = n^2$, there is a classical result saying that $D\otimes_{F}\bar{F}\cong M_n(\bar{F})$ as $\bar{F}$-algebras, where $\bar{F}$ ...

### Trying to understand "a refinement of the Peter–Weyl theorem" by Lusztig

"A refinement of the Peter–Weyl theorem" is the title of Chapter 29 in Lusztig's "Introduction to quantum groups" (Birkhäuser 2010, reprint of the 1994 edition). This chapter is ...

### Number of rings with additive group $(\mathbb{Z}_{16})^2$. A341547(16) in OEIS

I would like to know if somewhere the number of non-isomorphic rings with additive group $(\mathbb{Z}_{16})^2$ is mentioned. If not, is someone able to calculate it? And (easier) the commutative case? ...

### Free resolutions of universal enveloping algebras for simple, finite dimensional Lie algebras

I'm currently studying Anick's resolution on the context of universal enveloping algebras for certain Lie algebras, namely some of the smallest cases: $A_1,A_2,A_3,B_2,G_2$, and so on. What are some ...

### Literature on the polynomials and equations, in structures with zero-divisors

I need literature about zeroes of polynomials and equation resolution in associative algebraic structures with zero-divisors, but I am having difficulties to find it. For example, there is literature ...
Any Clifford algebra $\operatorname{Cl}(k, p)$ carries an induced inner product, which is the "trace" on its 0-blade: $\langle AB\rangle_0$ for given elements $A, B$ of the algebra. This inner ...
