### Modules of algebras with idempotents and the Stone-von Neumann theorem

The Stone-von Neumann theorem tells us that all unitary irreducible representations of the integrated/exponentiated/Weyl form of the canonical commutation relations (CCR) algebra in finite dimensions ...

### Is $x \in A_1$ left algebraic over the subalgebra generated by $p$ and $q$, $[q,p]=1$?

Let $A_1:=A_1(x,y,k)$ be the first Weyl algebra over a field $k$ of characteristic zero, namely, the $k$-algebra generated by $x$ and $y$ with relation $yx-xy=1$. Let $f:(x,y) \mapsto (p,q)$ be a $k$-...

### A non-commutative analog of: two polynomials are algebraically dependent iff their Jacobian is zero

Let $f,g \in \mathbb{C}[x,y]$. There is a well-known result, that can be found for example here, pages 19-20, that says the following: $f,g$ are algebraically dependent over $\mathbb{C}$ if and ...

### The group of automorphisms and anti-automorphisms of the first Weyl algebra

Let $k$ be a field of characteristic zero, and let $A_1=A_1(k)$ be the first Weyl algebra. It is well known (first proved by Dixmier, if I am not wrong) that the group of automorphisms of $A_1$, ...

### Does the Polarization Theorem for $A_1(k)$ has an analogue for $k[x,y]$?

There is an interesting theorem about the first Weyl algebra $A_1(k)= k \langle x,y | yx-xy= 1 \rangle$, $k$ is a field of characteristic zero, the Polarization Theorem, Corollary 5.5 by A. Joseph. ...
