Completion of localization of completion

Let $(A,m)$ be a noetherian local ring, and let $p \subseteq A$ be a prime ideal. From this data, we can construct two rings: 1. We may localize $A$ at $p$, and then complete, obtaining the $pA_p$-...

completion of finitely generated module over non-Noetherian ring

Let $A$ be a commutative ring with unity and fix $f \in A$. Any $A$-module $M$ has its $f$-adic completion, the $\hat{A}$-module $\hat{M} = \underset{n}{\lim} M/f^nM$. There is a canonical map $\hat{A}...

Can we recover the completion of a local ring $R$ if its associated graded is the coordinate ring of a Veronese variety?

Suppose $R$ is a localization of a normal closed point of a variety of dimension $n$ over an algebraically closed field $k$ with maximal ideal $\mathfrak{m}$. Suppose also that the associated graded $\...

Is the completion of a CAT(0) open ball a closed ball?

It is well-known that the completion of a metric space which is homeomorphic to a ball can be very wild; in fact, I think, every compact manifold is the closure of an open ball! But CAT(0) spaces are ...

Doesn't completion of a representation ring preserve its indecomposables?

For $G = PSU(3)$, it is known that $\dim I(G;\mathbb Q) / I(G;\mathbb Q)^2 = 3$, while $H^{**}(BG;\mathbb Q)$ is obviously a power series ring in two indeterminates since $G$ has rank 2. This would ...
