Finitedimensional division algebras over fields
by
Nathan Jacobson(
Book
)
14 editions published between 1996 and 2014 in 3 languages and held by 338 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
FiniteDimensional Division Algebras over fields determine, by the Wedderburn Theorem, the semisimple finitedimensional algebras over a field. They lead to the definition of the Brauer group and to certain geometric objects, the BrauerSeveri varieties. The book concentrates on those algebras that have an involution. Algebras with involution appear in many contexts; they arose first in the study of the socalled 'multiplication algebras of Riemann matrices'. The largest part of the book is the fifth chapter, dealing with involutorial simple algebras of finite dimension over a field. Of particular interest are the Jordan algebras determined by these algebras with involution;their structure is discussed. Two important concepts of these algebras with involution are the universal enveloping algebras and the reduced norm. Corrections of the 1st edition (1996) carried out on behalf of N. Jacobson (deceased) by Prof. P.M. Cohn (UC London, UK)
