Value functions and associated graded rings for central simple algebras

Speaker: Professor Adrian Wadsworth (UCSD)

Time: 4:00PM
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.
