This extends existing results on the Jacobson radical of skew polynomial rings of derivation
type.

Simplicity of Partial Skew Group Rings of Abelian Groups Let $A$ be a ring with local units, $E$ a set of local units for $A$,
$G$ an abelian group and $\alpha$ a partial action of $G$ by ideals of
$A$ that contain local units.
We show that $A\star_{\alpha} G$ is simple if and only if $A$ is
$G$-simple and the center of the corner $e\delta_0 (A\star_{\alpha} G)
e \delta_0$ is a field for all $e\in E$. We apply the result to
characterize simplicity of partial skew group rings in two cases,
namely for partial skew group rings arising from partial actions by
clopen subsets of a compact set and partial actions on the set level.

On Semisimple Hopf Algebras of Dimension $pq^n$ Let $p,q$ be prime numbers with $p^2\lt q$, $n\in \mathbb{N}$, and $H$ a
semisimple Hopf algebra of dimension $pq^n$ over an algebraically
closed field of characteristic $0$. This paper proves that $H$ must
possess one of the following structures: (1) $H$ is semisolvable;
(2) $H$ is a Radford biproduct $R\# kG$, where $kG$ is the group
algebra of group $G$ of order $p$, and $R$ is a semisimple Yetter--Drinfeld
Hopf algebra in ${}^{kG}_{kG}\mathcal{YD}$ of dimension $q^n$.

On the Multiplicities of Characters in Table Algebras In this paper we show that every module of a table algebra
can be considered as a faithful module of some quotient table
algebra.
Also we prove that every faithful module of a table algebra
determines a closed subset which is a cyclic group.
As a main result we give some information about multiplicities
of characters in table algebras.

Un Anneau Commutatif associÃ© Ã un design symÃ©trique Dans les articles \cite{1}, \cite{2} et \cite{3}; l'auteur dÃ©veloppe une reprÃ©sentation
d'un plan projectif fini par un
anneau commutatif unitaire dont les propriÃ©tÃ©s algÃ©briques dÃ©pendent
de la structure gÃ©omÃ©trique du plan. Dans l'article \cite{4}; il Ã©tend cette reprÃ©sentation aux designs symÃ©triques. Cependant l'auteur de l'article \cite{7} fait remarquer que la multiplication dÃ©finie dans ce cas ne peut Ãªtre associative que si le design est un plan projectif.

symÃ©triques. On y montrera comment on peut faire associer un
anneau commutatif unitaire Ã
tout design symÃ©trique , on y prÃ©cisera certaines de ses propriÃ©tÃ©s, en
particulier, celles qui relÃ¨vent de son invariance. On caractÃ©risera aussi les gÃ©omÃ©tries projectives finies de dimension supÃ©rieure moyennant cette reprÃ©sentation.

Duality of Preenvelopes and Pure Injective Modules Let $R$ be an arbitrary ring and $(-)^+=\operatorname{Hom}_{\mathbb{Z}}(-,
\mathbb{Q}/\mathbb{Z})$ where $\mathbb{Z}$ is the ring of integers
and $\mathbb{Q}$ is the ring of rational numbers, and let
$\mathcal{C}$ be a subcategory of left $R$-modules and $\mathcal{D}$
a subcategory of right $R$-modules such that $X^+\in \mathcal{D}$
for any $X\in \mathcal{C}$ and all modules in $\mathcal{C}$ are pure
injective. Then a homomorphism $f: A\to C$ of left $R$-modules with
$C\in \mathcal{C}$ is a $\mathcal{C}$-(pre)envelope of $A$ provided
$f^+: C^+\to A^+$ is a $\mathcal{D}$-(pre)cover of $A^+$. Some
applications of this result are given.

Strongly $0$-dimensional Modules In a multiplication module, prime submodules have the property, if a prime
submodule contains a finite intersection of submodules then one of the
submodules is contained in the prime submodule. In this paper, we generalize
this property to infinite intersection of submodules and call such prime
submodules strongly prime submodule. A multiplication module in which every
prime submodule is strongly prime will be called strongly 0-dimensional
module. It is also an extension of strongly 0-dimensional rings. After
this we investigate properties of strongly 0-dimensional modules and give
relations of von Neumann regular modules, Q-modules and strongly
0-dimensional modules.

Jordan $*$-Derivations of Finite-Dimensional Semiprime Algebras In the paper, we characterize Jordan $*$-derivations of a $2$-torsion
free, finite-dimensional semiprime algebra $R$ with involution $*$. To
be precise, we prove the theorem: Let $deltacolon R o R$ be a Jordan
$*$-derivation. Then there exists a $*$-algebra decomposition
$R=Uoplus V$ such that both $U$ and $V$ are invariant under
$delta$. Moreover, $*$ is the identity map of $U$ and $delta,|_U$ is a
derivation, and the Jordan $*$-derivation $delta,|_V$ is inner.
We also prove the theorem: Let $R$ be a noncommutative, centrally
closed prime algebra with involution $*$, $operatorname{char},R
e 2$,
and let $delta$ be a nonzero Jordan $*$-derivation of $R$. If $delta$ is
an elementary operator of $R$, then $operatorname{dim}_CRlt infty$ and
$delta$ is inner.

On Automorphisms and Commutativity in Semiprime Rings Let $R$ be a semiprime ring with center
$Z(R)$. For $x,y\in R$, we denote by $[x,y]=xy-yx$ the commutator of
$x$ and $y$. If $\sigma$ is a non-identity automorphism of $R$ such
that
$$
\Big[\big[\dots\big[[\sigma(x^{n_0}),x^{n_1}],x^{n_2}\big],\dots\big],x^{n_k}\Big]=0
$$
for all $x \in R$, where $n_{0},n_{1},n_{2},\dots,n_{k}$ are fixed
positive integers, then there exists a map $\mu\colon R\rightarrow Z(R)$
such that $\sigma(x)=x+\mu(x)$ for all $x\in R$. In particular, when
$R$ is a prime ring, $R$ is commutative.

Ziegler's Indecomposability Criterion Ziegler's Indecomposability Criterion is used to prove that a totally
transcendental, i.e., $\Sigma$-pure injective, indecomposable left
module over a left noetherian ring is a directed union of finitely
generated indecomposable modules. The same criterion is also used to
give a sufficient condition for a pure injective indecomposable module
${_R}U$ to have an indecomposable local dual $U_R^{\sharp}.$

Involutions and Anticommutativity in Group Rings Let $g\mapsto g^*$ denote an involution on a
group $G$. For any (commutative, associative) ring
$R$ (with $1$), $*$ extends linearly to an involution
of the group ring $RG$. An element $\alpha\in RG$
is symmetric if $\alpha^*=\alpha$ and
skew-symmetric if $\alpha^*=-\alpha$.
The skew-symmetric elements are closed under
the Lie bracket, $[\alpha,\beta]=\alpha\beta-\beta\alpha$.
In this paper, we investigate when this set is also closed
under the ring product in $RG$.
The symmetric elements are closed under the Jordan
product, $\alpha\circ\beta=\alpha\beta+\beta\alpha$.
Here, we determine when this product is trivial.
These two problems
are analogues of problems about the skew-symmetric and
symmetric elements in group rings that have received a
lot of attention.

Casimir Operators and Nilpotent Radicals It is shown that a Lie algebra having a nilpotent radical has a
fundamental set of invariants consisting of Casimir operators. A
different proof is given in the well known special case of an
abelian radical. A result relating the number of invariants to the
dimension of the Cartan subalgebra is also established.

A Note on the Antipode for Algebraic Quantum Groups Recently, Beattie, Bulacu ,and Torrecillas proved Radford's formula for the fourth power of the antipode for a co-Frobenius Hopf algebra.
In this note, we show that this formula can be proved for any regular multiplier Hopf
algebra with integrals (algebraic quantum groups). This, of course, not only includes the case of a
finite-dimensional Hopf algebra, but also that of any
Hopf algebra with integrals (co-Frobenius Hopf algebras). Moreover, it turns out that
the proof in this more general situation, in fact, follows in a few lines from well-known formulas obtained earlier in the
theory of regular multiplier Hopf algebras with integrals.
We discuss these formulas and their importance in this theory. We also mention their generalizations, in particular to the (in a certain sense) more general theory of locally compact quantum groups. Doing so, and also because the proof of the main result itself is very short, the present note becomes largely of an expository nature.

The Structure of the Unit Group of the Group Algebra ${\mathbb{F}}_{2^k}D_{8}$
Let $RG$ denote the group ring of the group $G$ over
the ring $R$. Using an isomorphism between $RG$ and a
certain ring of $n \times n$ matrices in conjunction with other
techniques, the structure of the unit group of the group algebra
of the dihedral group of order $8$ over any
finite field of chracteristic $2$ is determined in
terms of split extensions of cyclic groups.

Hulls of Ring Extensions We investigate the behavior of the quasi-Baer and the
right FI-extending right ring hulls under various ring extensions
including group ring extensions, full and triangular matrix ring
extensions, and infinite matrix ring extensions. As a consequence,
we show that for semiprime rings $R$ and $S$, if $R$ and $S$ are
Morita equivalent, then so are the quasi-Baer right ring hulls
$\widehat{Q}_{\mathfrak{qB}}(R)$ and $\widehat{Q}_{\mathfrak{qB}}(S)$ of
$R$ and $S$, respectively. As an application, we prove that if
unital $C^*$-algebras $A$ and $B$ are Morita equivalent as rings,
then the bounded central closure of $A$ and that of $B$ are
strongly Morita equivalent as $C^*$-algebras. Our results show
that the quasi-Baer property is always preserved by infinite
matrix rings, unlike the Baer property. Moreover, we give an
affirmative answer to an open question of Goel and Jain for the
commutative group ring $A[G]$ of a torsion-free Abelian group $G$
over a commutative semiprime quasi-continuous ring $A$. Examples
that illustrate and delimit the results of this paper are provided.

Density of Polynomial Maps Let $R$ be a dense subring of $\operatorname{End}(_DV)$, where $V$ is a left vector space over a division ring $D$. If $\dim{_DV}=\infty$, then the range of any nonzero polynomial $f(X_1,\dots,X_m)$ on $R$ is dense in $\operatorname{End}(_DV)$. As an application, let $R$ be a prime ring without nonzero nil one-sided ideals and $0\ne a\in R$. If $af(x_1,\dots,x_m)^{n(x_i)}=0$ for all $x_1,\dots,x_m\in R$, where $n(x_i)$ is a positive integer depending on $x_1,\dots,x_m$, then $f(X_1,\dots,X_m)$ is a polynomial identity of $R$ unless $R$ is a finite matrix ring over a finite field.

A Theorem on Unit-Regular Rings Let $R$ be a unit-regular ring and let $\sigma $ be an endomorphism of
$R$ such that $\sigma (e)=e$ for all $e^2=e\in R$ and let $n\ge 0$. It
is proved that every element of $R[x \mathinner;\sigma]/(x^{n+1})$ is
equivalent to an element of the form $e_0+e_1x+\dots +e_nx^n$, where
the $e_i$ are orthogonal idempotents of $R$. As an application, it is
proved that $R[x \mathinner; \sigma ]/(x^{n+1})$ is left morphic for each
$n\ge 0$.

Extensions of Rings Having McCoy Condition Let $R$ be an associative ring with unity.
Then $R$ is said to be a {\it right McCoy ring} when the equation
$f(x)g(x)=0$ (over $R[x]$), where $0\neq f(x),g(x) \in R[x]$,
implies that there exists a nonzero element $c\in R$ such that
$f(x)c=0$. In this paper, we characterize some basic ring
extensions of right McCoy rings and we prove that if $R$ is a
right McCoy ring, then $R[x]/(x^n)$ is
a right McCoy ring for any positive integer $n\geq 2$ .

$2$-Clean Rings A ring $R$ is said to be $n$-clean if every
element can be written as a sum of an idempotent and $n$ units.
The class of these rings contains clean rings and $n$-good rings
in which each element is a sum of $n$ units. In this paper, we
show that for any ring $R$, the endomorphism ring of a free
$R$-module of rank at least 2 is $2$-clean and that the ring $B(R)$
of all $\omega\times \omega$ row and column-finite matrices over
any ring $R$ is $2$-clean. Finally, the group ring $RC_{n}$ is
considered where $R$ is a local ring.

A Representation Theorem for Archimedean Quadratic Modules on $*$-Rings We present a new approach to noncommutative real algebraic geometry
based on the representation theory of $C^\ast$-algebras.
An important result in commutative real algebraic geometry is
Jacobi's representation theorem for archimedean quadratic modules
on commutative rings.
We show that this theorem is a consequence of the
Gelfand--Naimark representation theorem for commutative $C^\ast$-algebras.
A noncommutative version of Gelfand--Naimark theory was studied by
I. Fujimoto. We use his results to generalize
Jacobi's theorem to associative rings with involution.
