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.

AlgÃ¨bres simples centrales de degrÃ© 5 et $E_8$
As a consequence of a theorem of RostSpringer, we establish that the
cyclicity problem for central simple algebra of degree~5 on fields
containg a fifth root of unity is equivalent to the study of
anisotropic elements of order 5 in the split group of type~$E_8$.

Trivial Units in Group Rings
Let $G$ be an arbitrary group and let $U$ be a subgroup of the
normalized units in $\mathbb{Z}G$. We show that if $U$ contains $G$
as a subgroup of finite index, then $U = G$. This result can be used
to give an alternative proof of a recent result of Marciniak and
Sehgal on units in the integral group ring of a crystallographic group.

Resolutions of Associative and Lie Algebras
Certain canonical resolutions are described for free associative and
free Lie algebras in the category of nonassociative algebras. These
resolutions derive in both cases from geometric objects, which in turn
reflect the combinatorics of suitable collections of leaflabeled
trees.

Lie Derivations in Prime Rings With Involution
Let $R$ be a nonGPI prime ring with involution and characteristic
$\neq 2,3$. Let $K$ denote the skew elements of $R$, and $C$ denote
the extended centroid of $R$. Let $\delta$ be a Lie derivation of $K$
into itself. Then $\delta=\rho+\epsilon$ where $\epsilon$ is an
additive map into the skew elements of the extended centroid of $R$
which is zero on $[K,K]$, and $\rho$ can be extended to an ordinary
derivation of $\langle K\rangle$ into $RC$, the central closure.

Rings With Comparability
The class of rings studied in this paper properly contains the
class of right distributive rings which have at least one
completely prime ideal in the Jacobson radical. Amongst other
results we study prime and semiprime ideals, right noetherian rings
with comparability and prove a structure theorem for rings with
comparability. Several examples are also given.

Dependent automorphisms in prime rings
For each $n\geq 4$ we construct a class of examples of a minimal
$C$dependent set of $n$ automorphisms of a prime ring $R$, where $C$
is the extended centroid of $R$. For $n=4$ and $n=5$ it is shown that
the preceding examples are completely general, whereas for $n=6$ an
example is given which fails to enjoy any of the nice properties of
the above example.

The cardinality of the center of a $\PI$ ring
The main result shows that if $R$ is a semiprime ring satisfying
a polynomial identity, and if $Z(R)$ is the center of $R$, then
$\card R \leq 2^{\card Z(R)}$. Examples show that this bound can
be achieved, and that the inequality fails to hold for rings which
are not semiprime.

On permanental identities of symmetric and skewsymmetric matrices in characteristic \lowercase{$p$}
Let $M_n(F)$ be the algebra of $n \times n$
matrices over a field $F$ of characteristic $p>2$ and let $\ast$ be an
involution on $M_n(F)$. If $s_1, \ldots, s_r$ are symmetric
variables we determine the smallest $r$ such that the polynomial
$$
P_{r}(s_1, \ldots, s_{r}) = \sum_{\sigma \in {\cal
S}_r}s_{\sigma(1)}\cdots s_{\sigma(r)}
$$
is a $\ast$polynomial identity of $M_n(F)$ under either the
symplectic or the transpose involution. We also prove an analogous
result for the polynomial
$$
C_r(k_1, \ldots, k_r, k'_1, \ldots, k'_r) = \sum_
{\sigma, \tau \in {\cal S}_r}k_{\sigma(1)}k'_{\tau(1)}\cdots
k_{\sigma(r)}k'_{\tau(r)}
$$
where $k_1, \ldots, k_r, k'_1, \ldots, k'_r$ are skew
variables under the transpose involution.

On generalized third dimension subgroups
Let $G$ be any group, and $H$ be a normal subgroup of $G$. Then M.~Hartl
identified the subgroup $G \cap(1+\triangle^3(G)+\triangle(G)\triangle(H))$
of $G$. In this note we give an independent proof of the result of Hartl,
and we identify two subgroups
$G\cap(1+\triangle(H)\triangle(G)\triangle(H)+\triangle([H,G])\triangle(H))$,
$G\cap(1+\triangle^2(G)\triangle(H)+\triangle(K)\triangle(H))$ of $G$ for
some subgroup $K$ of $G$ containing $[H,G]$.

The transfer of a commutator law from a nilring to its adjoint group
For every field $F$ of characteristic $p\geq 0$,
we construct an example of a finite dimensional nilpotent
$F$algebra $R$ whose adjoint group $A(R)$ is not
centrebymetabelian, in spite of the fact that $R$ is Lie
centrebymetabelian
and satisfies the identities $x^{2p}=0$ when $p>2$ and
$x^8=0$ when $p=2$. The
existence of such algebras answers a question raised by
A.~E.~Zalesskii, and is in contrast to
positive results obtained by Krasilnikov, Sharma and Srivastava
for Lie metabelian rings
and by Smirnov for the class Lie centrebymetabelian nilalgebras
of exponent 4 over a field of characteristic 2 of cardinality at least 4.
