Isotropic Involutions in Characteristic 2Speaker: Andrew Dolphin (Universitaet Konstanz)
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.
