Value functions and associated graded rings for central simple algebras
Speaker: Professor Adrian Wadsworth (UCSD)
Date: Wed 17th October 2007
Location: Mathematical Sciences Seminar Room
We now have a good notion of value functions for central simple algebras, based on properties of the associated graded ring. This will be described, along with applications to showing indecomposability of certain division algebras.
