On invariants of partial group rings |
November 10, 2015 |
14:30-15:30 |
241-A |
Abstract: My talk will be based on a joint paper with Juan Jacobo Simon. We show that the partial group ring of a finite group over a commutative ring is determined by the subgroup lattice of the base group and the orders of the subgroups. For partial group rings of finite groups of odd orders a list of natural invariants is given. Some applications to the isomorphism problem will be given. |

The unitary cover of a finite group |
October 20, 2015 |
14:30-15:30 |
241-A |
Abstract: An explicit description of the Schur multiplier of a finite group is often a difficult task. We introduce the unitary cover, a very interesting tool to achieve information about the exponent of the multiplier. We discuss some open problems while describing part of the obtained bounds. |

Peirce decompositions, Peirce idempotents and Peirce rings |
October 13, 2015 |
14:30-15:30 |
241-A |
Abstract: It is well-known that idempotents determine essentially the structure of rings when there are a lots of them as in the case of matrix rings or in coordinating projective geometries. In this talk we introduce the notion of n-Peirce idempotents and rings by analysizing a two-sided Peirce decomposition of a ring by a given idempotent. Surprising enough, one can develop a structure theory of n-Peirce rings quite similarly to the one of semiperfect rings where the 1-Peirce idempotents take almost the same role as primitive idempotents played in the classical theory. |

Abelian Groups with constant weight |
October 6, 2015 |
14:30-15:30 |
241-A |
Abstract: Let G be a finite abelian group and F_q a finite field with q elements. An q-ary abelian code will be defined as a non trivial ideal of the group algebra F_q G. In this lecture we determine when an abelian code C has constant weight. That is, when the support of allnon trivial elements of C have the same cardinality. (Joint work with Prof. Ruth Nascimento (UTFPR-Guarapuava-PR).) |

Free symmetric algebras in division rings generated by enveloping algebras of Lie algebras (III) |
September 29, 2015 |
14:30-15:30 |
241-A |
Abstract: This is a joint work with Vitor O. Ferreira and Jairo Z. Gonçalves. For any Lie algebra L over a field, its universal enveloping algebra U(L) can be embedded in a division ring D(L) constructed by Cohn (and simplified later by Lichtman). If U(L) is an Ore domain, D(L) coincides with its ring of fractions. Consider now the principal involution of L, L---> L, x-->-x. It is well known that the principal involution of L can be extended to an involution of U(L). It was proved by Cimpric, that this involution can be extended to D(L). For a large class of noncommutative Lie algebras L over a field of characteristic zero, we show that D(L) contains noncommutative free algebras generated by symmetric elements (with respect to the extension of the principal involution). This class contains all noncommutative Lie algebras over a field of characteristic zero such that U(L) is an Ore domain. |

Steiner Loops satisfying Moufang's Theorem |
August 25, 2015 |
14:30-15:30 |
241-A |
Abstract: A
loop satisfies Moufang's theorem whenever the subloop generated
by three associating elements is a group. Moufang loops satisfy
Moufang's theorem, but it is possible for a loop that is not
Moufang to nevertheless satisfy Moufang's theorem. Steiner loops
that are not Moufang loops are known to arise from Steiner triple
systems in which some triangle does not generate a subsystem of
order 7, while Steiner loops that do not satisfy Moufang's
theorem are shown to arise from Steiner triple systems in which
some Pasch configuration does not generate a subsystem of order
7. |

Free objects in Ore extensions and free groups in division rings II |
August 18, 2015 |
14:30-15:30 |
241-A |
Abstract: Let K be a field, let \sigma be an automorphism of K with fixed field k, and let \delta be a \sigma-derivation of K. We show that if char(k)=0, then division ring D=K(X;\sigma,\delta) is either locally PI, or it contains a free algebra over its center. If k_0 is the prime field of K, and tr.deg(k/k_0) is infinite, then D-{0}, the multiplicative group of D, contains a free subgroup. Some applications of these results will be given.

Extensions of semilattices of groups by groups II |
June 2, 2015 |
14:30-15:30 |
144-B |
Abstract: We introduce the concept of an extension of a semilattice of groups A by a group G and describe all the extensions of this type which are equivalent to the crossed products A*G by twisted partial actions [2] of G on A. As a consequence, we establish a one-to-one correspondence, up to an isomorphism, between twisted partial actions of groups on semilattices of groups and Sieben's twisted modules (see [1,3,4]) over E-unitary inverse semigroups. This is a joint work with M. Dokuchaev. [1] Buss, A., and Exel, R. Twisted actions and regular Fell bundles over inverse semigroups. Proc. Lond. Math.Soc. 103, 2 (2011), 235-270.
