Centers in domains with quadratic growth

Agata Smoktunowicz (2005)

Open Mathematics

Let F be a field, and let R be a finitely-generated F-algebra, which is a domain with quadratic growth. It is shown that either the center of R is a finitely-generated F-algebra or R satisfies a polynomial identity (is PI) or else R is algebraic over F. Let r ∈ R be not algebraic over F and let C be the centralizer of r. It is shown that either the quotient ring of C is a finitely-generated division algebra of Gelfand-Kirillov dimension 1 or R is PI.

The rings which are Boolean

Ivan Chajda, Filip Švrček (2011)

Discussiones Mathematicae - General Algebra and Applications

We study unitary rings of characteristic 2 satisfying identity x p = x for some natural number p. We characterize several infinite families of these rings which are Boolean, i.e., every element is idempotent. For example, it is in the case if p = 2 n - 2 or p = 2 n - 5 or p = 2 n + 1 for a suitable natural number n. Some other (more general) cases are solved for p expressed in the form 2 q + 2 m + 1 or 2 q + 2 m where q is a natural number and m 1 , 2 , . . . , 2 q - 1 .
