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.

On Primitive Ideals in Graded Rings Let $R=\bigoplus_{i=1}^{\infty}R_{i}$ be a graded nil ring. It is shown
that primitive ideals in $R$ are homogeneous. Let
$A=\bigoplus_{i=1}^{\infty}A_{i}$ be a graded non-PI just-infinite
dimensional algebra and let $I$ be a prime ideal in $A$. It is shown
that either $I=\{0\}$ or $I=A$. Moreover, $A$ is either primitive or
Jacobson radical.

Noncommutative Symmetric Bessel Functions The consideration of tensor products of $0$-Hecke algebra modules
leads to natural analogs of the Bessel $J$-functions in the algebra
of noncommutative symmetric functions. This provides a simple explanation

Group Algebras with Minimal Strong Lie Derived Length Let $KG$ be a non-commutative strongly Lie solvable group algebra of a
group $G$ over a field $K$ of positive characteristic $p$. In this
note we state necessary and sufficient conditions so that the

$\lceil \log_{2}(p+1)\rceil $.

On the Classification of Rational Quantum Tori and the Structure of Their Automorphism Groups An $n$-dimensional quantum torus is a twisted group algebra of the
group $\Z^n$. It is called rational if all invertible commutators are roots
of unity. In the present note we describe a normal form for rational
$n$-dimensional quantum
tori over any field. Moreover, we show that for
$n = 2$ the natural exact sequence
describing the automorphism group of the quantum torus splits over any
field.

Homotopy Formulas for Cyclic Groups Acting on Rings The positive cohomology groups of a finite group acting on a ring
vanish when the ring has a norm one element. In this note we give
explicit homotopies on the level of cochains when the group is cyclic,
which allows us to express any cocycle of a cyclic group
as the coboundary of an explicit cochain.
The formulas in this note are closely related to the effective problems considered in previous joint work
with Eli Aljadeff.

On Valuations, Places and Graded Rings Associated to $*$-Orderings We study natural $*$-valuations, $*$-places and graded $*$-rings
associated with $*$-ordered rings.
We prove that the natural $*$-valuation is always quasi-Ore and is
even quasi-commutative (\emph{i.e.,} the corresponding graded $*$-ring is
commutative), provided the ring contains an imaginary unit.
Furthermore, it is proved that the graded $*$-ring is isomorphic
to a twisted semigroup algebra. Our results are applied to answer a question
of Cimpri\v c regarding $*$-orderability of quantum
groups.

Affine Completeness of Generalised Dihedral Groups In this paper we study affine completeness of generalised dihedral
groups. We give a formula for the number of unary compatible
functions on these groups, and we characterise for every $k \in~\N$
the $k$-affine complete generalised dihedral groups. We find that
the direct product of a $1$-affine complete group with itself need not
be $1$-affine complete. Finally, we give an example of a nonabelian
solvable affine complete group. For nilpotent groups we find a
strong necessary condition for $2$-affine completeness.

Endomorphisms That Are the Sum of a Unit and a Root of a Fixed Polynomial If $C=C(R)$ denotes the center of a ring $R$ and $g(x)$ is a polynomial in
C[x]$, Camillo and Sim\'{o}n called a ring $g(x)$-clean if every element is
the sum of a unit and a root of $g(x)$. If $V$ is a vector space of
countable dimension over a division ring $D,$ they showed that
$\end {}_{D}V$ is
$g(x)$-clean provided that $g(x)$ has two roots in $C(D)$. If $g(x)=x-x^{2}$
this shows that $\end {}_{D}V$ is clean, a result of Nicholson and Varadarajan.
In this paper we remove the countable condition, and in fact prove that
$\Mend {}_{R}M$ is $g(x)$-clean for any semisimple module $M$ over an arbitrary
ring $R$ provided that $g(x)\in (x-a)(x-b)C[x]$ where $a,b\in C$ and both $b$
and $b-a$ are units in $R$.

Separation of Variables for $U_{q}(\mathfrak{sl}_{n+1})^{+}$ Let $U_{q}(\SL)^{+}$ be the positive part of the quantized enveloping
algebra $U_{q}(\SL)$. Using results of Alev--Dumas and Caldero related
to the center of $U_{q}(\SL)^{+}$, we show that this algebra is free
over its center. This is reminiscent of Kostant's separation of
variables for the enveloping algebra $U(\g)$ of a complex semisimple
Lie algebra $\g$, and also of an analogous result of Joseph--Letzter
for the quantum algebra $\Check{U}_{q}(\g)$. Of greater importance to
its representation theory is the fact that $\U{+}$ is free over a
larger polynomial subalgebra $N$ in $n$ variables. Induction from $N$
to $\U{+}$ provides infinite-dimensional modules with good properties,
including a grading that is inherited by submodules.

On the Garsia Lie Idempotent The orthogonal projection of the free associative algebra onto the
free Lie algebra is afforded by an idempotent in the rational group
algebra of the symmetric group $S_n$, in each homogenous degree
$n$. We give various characterizations of this Lie idempotent and show
that it is uniquely determined by a certain unit in the group algebra
of $S_{n-1}$. The inverse of this unit, or, equivalently, the Gram
matrix of the orthogonal projection, is described explicitly. We also
show that the Garsia Lie idempotent is not constant on descent classes
(in fact, not even on coplactic classes) in $S_n$.

Krull Dimension of Injective Modules Over Commutative Noetherian Rings Let $R$ be a commutative Noetherian
integral domain with field of fractions $Q$. Generalizing a
forty-year-old theorem of E. Matlis, we prove that the $R$-module
$Q/R$ (or $Q$) has Krull dimension if and only if $R$ is semilocal
and one-dimensional. Moreover, if $X$ is an injective module over
a commutative Noetherian ring such that $X$ has Krull dimension,
then the Krull dimension of $X$ is at most $1$.

Trivial Units for Group Rings with $G$-adapted Coefficient Rings For each finite group $G$ for which the integral group ring
$\mathbb{Z}G$ has only trivial units, we give ring-theoretic
conditions for a commutative ring $R$ under which the group ring
$RG$ has nontrivial units. Several examples of rings satisfying
the conditions and rings not satisfying the conditions are given.
In addition, we extend a well-known result for fields by showing
that if $R$ is a ring of finite characteristic and $RG$ has only
trivial units, then $G$ has order at most 3.

Combinatorics of Words and Semigroup Algebras Which Are Sums of Locally Nilpotent Subalgebras We construct new examples of non-nil algebras with any number of
generators, which are direct sums of two
locally nilpotent subalgebras. Like all previously known examples, our examples
are contracted semigroup algebras and the underlying semigroups are unions
of locally nilpotent subsemigroups.
In our constructions we make more
transparent
than in the past the close relationship between the considered problem
and combinatorics of words.

Biprojectivity and Biflatness for Convolution Algebras of Nuclear Operators For a locally compact group $G$, the convolution product on
the space $\nN(L^p(G))$ of nuclear operators was defined by Neufang
\cite{Neuf_PhD}. We study homological properties of the convolution algebra
$\nN(L^p(G))$ and relate them to some properties of the group $G$,
such as compactness, finiteness, discreteness, and amenability.

Group Gradings on Matrix Algebras Let $\Phi$ be an algebraically closed field of characteristic zero,
$G$ a finite, not necessarily abelian, group. Given a $G$-grading on
the full matrix algebra $A = M_n(\Phi)$, we decompose $A$ as the
tensor product of graded subalgebras $A = B\otimes C$, $B\cong M_p
(\Phi)$ being a graded division algebra, while the grading of $C\cong
M_q (\Phi)$ is determined by that of the vector space $\Phi^n$. Now
the grading of $A$ is recovered from those of $A$ and $B$ using a
canonical ``induction'' procedure.

Classification of Quantum Tori with Involution Quantum tori with graded involution appear as coordinate algebras of
extended affine Lie algebras of type $\rmA_1$, $\rmC$ and $\BC$.
We classify them in the category of algebras with involution. From
this, we obtain precise information on the root systems of extended
affine Lie algebras of type $\rmC$.

Coordinatization Theorems For Graded Algebras In this paper we study simple associative algebras with finite
$\mathbb{Z}$-gradings. This is done using a simple algebra $F_g$
that has been constructed in Morita theory from a bilinear form
$g\colon U\times V\to A$ over a simple algebra $A$. We show that
finite $\mathbb{Z}$-gradings on $F_g$ are in one to one
correspondence with certain decompositions of the pair $(U,V)$. We
also show that any simple algebra $R$ with finite
$\mathbb{Z}$-grading is graded isomorphic to $F_g$ for some
bilinear from $g\colon U\times V \to A$, where the grading on $F_g$
is determined by a decomposition of $(U,V)$ and the coordinate
algebra $A$ is chosen as a simple ideal of the zero component $R_0$
of $R$. In order to prove these results we first prove similar
results for simple algebras with Peirce gradings.
