Isotropic Involutions in Characteristic 2

Speaker: Andrew Dolphin (Universitaet Konstanz)

Time: 3:00PM
Date: Wed 1st December 2010

Location: Mathematical Sciences Seminar Room

The aim of this talk will be to introduce some basic results on metabolic algebras with involution. In particular, we will show some of the interesting isotropy behaviour that occurs over quadratic extensions when the base field is of characteristic 2.
