### Problem 24 of section 2 of *Noncommutative Algebra* by Farb & Dennis

Problem 24 of section 2 of Noncommutative Algebra by Farb & Dennis states: Let $R$ be an artinian ring and let $G$ be a finite group. Show that $R[G]$ is semisimple if and only if $R$ is ...

### Examples of Noncommutative Noetherian Rings in which Lasker-Noether Fails?

I'm writing a paper on Emmy Noether for my introductory Abstract Algebra class, and I'm looking for examples of noncommutative Noetherian rings in which the Lasker-Noether theorem fails to hold. ...

### Crossed products and division algebras

I am currently reading some introductory material on Brauer groups ("Noncommutative Algebra", by Farb and Dennis) and the following two questions came to my mind: 1) Are all crossed products algebras,...

### Simultaneous triangular form for nil algebras over division ring

Let $D$ be a division ring. Let $V$ be a finite dimensional module over $D$, let $I \subseteq\operatorname{End}_D(V)$ be a $D$-submodule on both sides (I mean a subgroup closed by both on left and ...

### How is this commutator property $[a,b]=bx$ called?

If two elements $a,b$ commute like this $[a,b]=bx$ for some $x$ so that it can rewriten as $$ba=a(b-x),$$ is there a term for such property? It is as if $a$ and $b$ almost commuted (but not quite) ...

### Tensor product and opposite rings

Suppose $A$ is a ring, $M$ is a right $A$-module, and $N$ is a left $A$-module. In this situation, we can form the tensor product, $M\otimes_A N$, and this is an abelian group (and even a $Z(A)$-...

### Every right principal ideal non-emptily intersects the center — what is that?

This is a follow-up to Do Lipschitz/Hurwitz quaternions satisfy the Ore condition? Jyrki Lahtonen answered the question in the positive by noticing that every right principal ideal in either ring has ...

### Endomorphism rings of a $k$-algebra

Let $k$ be a field and $R$ be the $3$-dimensional $k$-algebra $\left [\begin{array}\ k & k \\ 0 & k \end{array} \right ]$. I have two conjectures: (1) Is any simple right $R$-module has ...

### Ideals of infinite product rings

(Rewritten following earlier feedback...) (1) What are the ideals of ${\mathbb Z}^{\mathbb N}$? That is, take the ring which is the product of a countable infinity of copies of $\mathbb Z$; is ...

### Does quotient commute with localization for non-commutative rings?

Following on from the question Does quotient commute with localization?, I'm interested in doing the same sort of thing but over non-commutative rings. Is there a non-commutative analogue of the ...

### Left ideals of central simple algebra generated by symmetric element

Let $F$ be a field of characteristic $\neq 2$. Suppose $(A,\sigma)$ is central simple algebra over a field $F$ with an orthogonal involution. Assume $(A,\sigma)$ is non-split. How to show that every ...
In Commutative algebra there is a notion of an integral extension: Let $P$ be a subring of $R$. Then $R$ is the integral extension of $P$ if each element of $R$ is a root of a monic polynomial with ...
