Algebra. Rings, modules and categories

VI of Oregon lectures in 1962, Bass gave simplified proofs of a few "Morita Theorems", incorporating rules of Chase and Schanuel. one of many Morita theorems characterizes whilst there's an equivalence of different types mod-A R::! mod-B for 2 jewelry A and B. Morita's resolution organizes rules so successfully that the classical Wedderburn-Artin theorem is a straightforward final result, and in addition, a similarity type [AJ within the Brauer crew Br(k) of Azumaya algebras over a commutative ring ok contains all algebras B such that the corresponding different types mod-A and mod-B which include k-linear morphisms are similar by way of a k-linear functor.

Matrix Partial Orders, Shorted Operators and Applications (Series in Algebra)

The current monograph on matrix partial orders, the 1st in this subject, makes a special presentation of many partial orders on matrices that experience involved mathematicians for his or her good looks and utilized scientists for his or her wide-ranging program strength. apart from the Löwner order, the partial orders thought of are particularly new and got here into being within the overdue Seventies.

Geometry and Algebra in Ancient Civilizations

Initially, my goal was once to write down a "History of Algebra", in or 3 volumes. In getting ready the 1st quantity I observed that during historic civiliza­ tions geometry and algebra can't good be separated: an increasing number of sec­ tions on old geometry have been additional. therefore the recent identify of the booklet: "Geometry and Algebra in historical Civilizations".

Example text

Hence, it has finitely many connected components. Clearly, for a matrix T ∈ O(n), T ∗ is its transpose. , det(T ) = ±1. It follows that the homomorphism det maps O(n) onto the subgroup {±1} of R∗ . Therefore, SO(n) is a normal Lie subgroup of O(n) of index 2. In particular, SO(n) is open in O(n). Moreover, it has finitely many connected components. The natural action of the group O(n) on Rn preserves the euclidean distance. Therefore, it acts differentiably on the unit sphere S n−1 = {x ∈ Rn | x21 + x22 + · · · + x2n = 1}.

A Lie algebra a is abelian if [x, y] = 0 for all x, y ∈ a. Let a be a Lie algebra. We denote by aopp the opposite Lie algebra of a. It is the same linear space with the commutator (x, y) −→ [x, y]◦ = −[x, y]. Clearly, aopp is a Lie algebra. Moreover, x −→ −x is an isomorphism of a with aopp . Evidently, we have (aopp )opp = a. If dim a = 1, a has to be abelian. If dim a = 2, we can pick a basis (v1 , v2 ) of a and see that [x, y] is proportional to [v1 , v2 ] for any x, y ∈ a. Therefore, we can assume that [x, y] is proportional to e1 for any x, y ∈ a.

7. Lemma. Let ϕ : G −→ H be a Lie group homomorphism of a simply ˜ be the connected, connected Lie group G into a connected Lie group H. Let H ˜ universal covering Lie group of H and p : H −→ H the covering projection. Then ˜ such that p ◦ ϕ˜ = ϕ. there exists a unique Lie group homomorphism ϕ˜ : G −→ H In addition, if ϕ : G −→ H is a Lie group morphism of connected Lie groups, ˜ −→ H ˜ such that the diagram there exists a unique Lie group homomorphism ϕ˜ : G ϕ ˜ ˜ −−− G −→   pG ϕ ˜ H  pH , G −−−−→ H where the vertical arrows are covering projections, is commutative.
