A Basis for Z-Graded Identities of Matrices over Infinite Fields

Azevedo, Sergio (2003)

Serdica Mathematical Journal

2000 Mathematics Subject Classification: 16R10, 16R20, 16R50The algebra Mn(K) of the matrices n × n over a field K can be regarded as a Z-graded algebra. In this paper, it is proved that if K is an infinite field, all the Z-graded polynomial identities of Mn(K) follow from the identities: x = 0, |α(x)| ≥ n, xy = yx, α(x) = α(y) = 0, xyz = zyx, α(x) = −α(y) = α(z ), where α is the degree of the corresponding variable. This is a generalization of a result of Vasilovsky about the Z-graded identities...

A Characterization of Varieties of Associative Algebras of Exponent two

Giambruno, A., Zaicev, M. (2000)

Serdica Mathematical Journal

∗The first author was partially supported by MURST of Italy; the second author was par- tially supported by RFFI grant 99-01-00233.It was recently proved that any variety of associative algebras over a field of characteristic zero has an integral exponential growth. It is known that a variety V has polynomial growth if and only if V does not contain the Grassmann algebra and the algebra of 2 × 2 upper triangular matrices. It follows that any variety with overpolynomial growth has exponent at least...

A reduction theorem for ring varieties whose subvariety lattice is distributive

Mikhail V. Volkov (2010)

Discussiones Mathematicae - General Algebra and Applications

We prove a theorem (for arbitrary ring varieties and, in a stronger form, for varieties of associative rings) which basically reduces the problem of a description of varieties with distributive subvariety lattice to the case of algebras over a finite prime field.

Asymptotic Behaviour of Colength of Varieties of Lie Algebras

Mishchenko, S., Zaicev, M. (2000)

Serdica Mathematical Journal

This project was partially supported by RFBR, grants 99-01-00233, 98-01-01020 and 00-15-96128.We study the asymptotic behaviour of numerical characteristics of polynomial identities of Lie algebras over a field of characteristic 0. In particular we investigate the colength for the cocharacters of polynilpotent varieties of Lie algebras. We prove that there exist polynilpotent Lie varieties with exponential and overexponential colength growth. We give the exact asymptotics for the colength of a product...

Cayley-Hamilton Theorem for Matrices over an Arbitrary Ring

Szigeti, Jeno (2006)

Serdica Mathematical Journal

2000 Mathematics Subject Classification: 15A15, 15A24, 15A33, 16S50.For an n×n matrix A over an arbitrary unitary ring R, we obtain the following Cayley-Hamilton identity with right matrix coefficients: (λ0I+C0)+A(λ1I+C1)+… +An-1(λn-1I+Cn-1)+An (n!I+Cn) = 0, where λ0+λ1x+…+λn-1 xn-1+n!xn is the right characteristic polynomial of A in R[x], I ∈ Mn(R) is the identity matrix and the entries of the n×n matrices Ci, 0 ≤ i ≤ n are in [R,R]. If R is commutative, then C0 = C1 = … = Cn-1 = Cn = 0 and our...

Invariants of Unipotent Transformations Acting on Noetherian Relatively Free Algebras

Drensky, Vesselin (2004)

Serdica Mathematical Journal

2000 Mathematics Subject Classification: 16R10, 16R30.The classical theorem of Weitzenböck states that the algebra of invariants K[X]^g of a single unipotent transformation g ∈ GLm(K) acting on the polynomial algebra K[X] = K[x1, . . . , xm] over a field K of characteristic 0 is finitely generated.Partially supported by Grant MM-1106/2001 of the Bulgarian National Science Fund.

Involution Matrix Algebras – Identities and Growth

Rashkova, Tsetska (2004)

Serdica Mathematical Journal

2000 Mathematics Subject Classification: 16R50, 16R10.The paper is a survey on involutions (anti-automorphisms of order two) of different kinds. Starting with the first systematic investigations on involutions of central simple algebras due to Albert the author emphasizes on their basic properties, the conditions on their existence and their correspondence with structural characteristics of the algebras. Focusing on matrix algebras a complete description of involutions of the first kind on Mn(F)...

Matrix identities involving multiplication and transposition

Karl Auinger, Igor Dolinka, Michael V. Volkov (2012)

Journal of the European Mathematical Society

We study matrix identities involving multiplication and unary operations such as transposition or Moore–Penrose inversion. We prove that in many cases such identities admit no finite basis.
