Let $k$ be a field. Given a commutative $k$-algebra $Z$ and an associative algebra $A$ that is Azumaya over $Z$, do we have an isomorphism of Hochschild cohomologies: $HH^*(A) \cong HH^*(Z)$? This is ...

An example of an Azumaya algebra that isn't free over its centre

Azumaya originally defined an Azumaya algebra (which he called a proper maximally central algebra) to be an algebra A which is a free module of finite rank over its centre Z such that the natural map $...
