Uniqueness of the von Neumann continuous factor
For a division ring $D$, denote by $\mathcal M_D$ the $D$ring
obtained as the completion of the direct limit $\varinjlim_n
M_{2^n}(D)$
with respect to the metric induced by its unique rank function.
We prove that, for any ultramatricial $D$ring $\mathcal B$ and
any
nondiscrete extremal pseudorank function $N$ on $\mathcal B$,
there is an isomorphism of $D$rings $\overline{\mathcal B} \cong \mathcal
M_D$, where $\overline{\mathcal B}$ stands
for the completion of $\mathcal B$ with respect to the pseudometric
induced by $N$.
This generalizes a result of von Neumann. We also show a corresponding
uniqueness result for $*$algebras over fields $F$ with positive
definite involution, where the
algebra $\mathcal M_F$ is endowed with its natural involution
coming from the $*$transpose involution on each of the factors
$M_{2^n}(F)$.

Long sets of lengths with maximal elasticity
We introduce a new invariant describing the structure of sets of lengths in atomic monoids and domains. For an atomic monoid $H$, let $\Delta_{\rho} (H)$ be the set of all positive integers $d$ which occur as differences of arbitrarily long arithmetical progressions contained in sets of lengths having maximal elasticity $\rho (H)$. We study $\Delta_{\rho} (H)$ for transfer Krull monoids of finite type (including commutative Krull domains with finite class group) with methods from additive combinatorics, and also for a class of weakly Krull domains (including orders in algebraic number fields) for which we use ideal theoretic methods.

Nori motives of curves with modulus and Laumon $1$motives
Let $k$ be a number field. We describe the category of Laumon
$1$isomotives over $k$ as the universal category in the sense
of Nori associated with a quiver representation built out of
smooth proper $k$curves with two disjoint effective divisors
and a notion of $H^1_\mathrm{dR}$ for such "curves with modulus".
This result extends and relies on the theorem of J. Ayoub
and L. BarbieriViale that describes Deligne's category
of $1$isomotives in terms of Nori's Abelian category of motives.

Multiplication formulas and canonical bases for quantum affine gln
We will give a representationtheoretic proof for the multiplication
formula
in the RingelHall algebra
$\mathfrak{H}_\Delta(n)$ of a cyclic quiver $\Delta(n)$. As a first
application, we see immediately the existence of Hall polynomials
for cyclic quivers, a fact established
by J. Y. Guo and C. M. Ringel,
and derive a recursive formula
to compute them.
We will further use the formula and the construction of a certain
monomial base for $\mathfrak{H}_\Delta(n)$ given
by Deng, Du, and Xiao
together with the double RingelHall algebra realisation of
the quantum loop algebra $\mathbf{U}_v(\widehat{\mathfrak{g}\mathfrak{l}}_n)$
given by
Deng, Du, and Fu
to develop some algorithms and to compute the canonical basis
for $\mathbf{U}_v^+(\widehat{\mathfrak{g}\mathfrak{l}}_n)$. As examples,
we will show explicitly the part of the canonical basis
associated with modules of Lowey length at most $2$ for the quantum
group $\mathbf{U}_v(\widehat{\mathfrak{g}\mathfrak{l}}_2)$.

Free Function Theory Through Matrix Invariants
This paper concerns free function theory. Free maps are free
analogs of analytic functions in several complex variables,
and are defined in terms of freely noncommuting variables.
A function of $g$ noncommuting variables is a function on $g$tuples
of square matrices of all sizes that respects direct sums and
simultaneous conjugation.
Examples of such maps include noncommutative polynomials, noncommutative
rational functions and convergent noncommutative power series.
In sharp contrast to the existing literature in free analysis, this article
investigates free maps \emph{with involution} 
free analogs of real analytic functions.
To
get a grip on these,
techniques and tools from invariant theory are developed and
applied to free analysis. Here is a sample of the results obtained.
A characterization of polynomial free maps via properties of
their finitedimensional slices is presented and then used to
establish power series expansions for analytic free maps about
scalar and nonscalar points; the latter are series of generalized
polynomials for which an invarianttheoretic characterization
is given.
Furthermore,
an inverse and implicit function theorem for free maps with
involution is obtained.
Finally, with a selection of carefully chosen examples
it is shown that
free maps with involution
do not exhibit strong rigidity properties
enjoyed by their involutionfree
counterparts.

Outer Partial Actions and Partial Skew Group Rings
We extend the classicial notion of an outer action
$\alpha$ of a group $G$ on a unital ring $A$
to the case when $\alpha$ is a partial action
on ideals, all of which have local units.
We show that if $\alpha$ is an outer partial
action of an abelian group $G$,
then its associated partial skew group
ring $A \star_\alpha G$ is simple if and only if
$A$ is $G$simple.
This result is applied to partial skew group rings associated with two different types of partial dynamical systems.

Bounded Derived Categories of Infinite Quivers: Grothendieck Duality, Reflection Functor
We study bounded derived categories of the category of representations of infinite quivers over a ring $R$. In case $R$ is a commutative noetherian ring with a dualising complex, we investigate an equivalence similar to Grothendieck duality for these categories, while a notion of dualising complex does not apply to them. The quivers we consider are left, resp. right, rooted quivers that are either noetherian or their opposite are noetherian. We also consider reflection functor and generalize a result of Happel to noetherian rings of finite global dimension, instead of fields.

embeds into an algebra constructed from the HOMFLYPT polynomial.

Quantum Drinfeld Hecke Algebras
We consider finite groups acting on
quantum (or skew) polynomial rings. Deformations of the
semidirect product of the quantum polynomial ring with the acting group
extend symplectic reflection algebras and graded Hecke algebras
to the quantum setting over a field
of arbitrary characteristic.
We give necessary and sufficient conditions for such algebras to satisfy a
PoincarÃ©BirkhoffWitt property using the theory of noncommutative
GrÃ¶bner bases.
We include applications to the case of abelian groups
and the case of groups acting on coordinate rings of quantum planes.
In addition, we classify graded automorphisms of the coordinate ring of quantum 3space. In characteristic zero, Hochschild cohomology
gives an elegant description of the PBW conditions.

Classifying the Minimal Varieties of Polynomial Growth
Let $\mathcal{V}$ be a variety of associative algebras generated by
an algebra with $1$ over a field of characteristic zero. This
paper is devoted to the classification of the varieties
$\mathcal{V}$ which are minimal of polynomial growth (i.e., their
sequence of codimensions growth like $n^k$ but any proper subvariety
grows like $n^t$ with $t\lt k$). These varieties are the building
blocks of general varieties of polynomial growth.
It turns out that for $k\le 4$ there are only a finite number of
varieties of polynomial growth $n^k$, but for each $k \gt 4$, the
number of minimal varieties is at least $F$, the cardinality of
the base field and we give a recipe of how to construct them.

On the Hadamard Product of Hopf Monoids
Combinatorial structures that compose and decompose give rise to Hopf monoids
in Joyal's category of species. The Hadamard product of two Hopf monoids
is another Hopf monoid. We prove two main results regarding freeness of
Hadamard products. The first one states
that if one factor is connected and the other is free as a monoid,
their Hadamard product is free (and connected).
The second provides an explicit basis for the Hadamard
product when both factors are free.
The first main result is obtained by showing the existence of a oneparameter deformation
of the comonoid structure and appealing to a rigidity result of Loday and Ronco
that applies when the parameter is set to zero.
To obtain the second result, we introduce an operation on species that is intertwined
by the free monoid functor with the Hadamard product.
As an application of the first result, we deduce that the Boolean transform
of the dimension sequence of a connected Hopf monoid is nonnegative.

Generalized Frobenius Algebras and Hopf Algebras
"CoFrobenius" coalgebras were introduced as dualizations of
Frobenius algebras.
We previously showed
that they admit
leftright symmetric characterizations analogue to those of Frobenius
algebras. We consider the more general quasicoFrobenius (QcF)
coalgebras; the first main result in this paper is that these also
admit symmetric characterizations: a coalgebra is QcF if it is weakly
isomorphic to its (left, or right) rational dual $Rat(C^*)$, in the
sense that certain coproduct or product powers of these objects are
isomorphic. Fundamental results of Hopf algebras, such as the
equivalent characterizations of Hopf algebras with nonzero integrals
as left (or right) coFrobenius, QcF, semiperfect or with nonzero
rational dual, as well as the uniqueness of integrals and a short
proof of the bijectivity of the antipode for such Hopf algebras all
follow as a consequence of these results. This gives a purely
representation theoretic approach to many of the basic fundamental
results in the theory of Hopf algebras. Furthermore, we introduce a
general concept of Frobenius algebra, which makes sense for infinite
dimensional and for topological algebras, and specializes to the
classical notion in the finite case. This will be a topological
algebra $A$ that is isomorphic to its complete topological dual
$A^\vee$. We show that $A$ is a (quasi)Frobenius algebra if and only
if $A$ is the dual $C^*$ of a (quasi)coFrobenius coalgebra $C$. We
give many examples of coFrobenius coalgebras and Hopf algebras
connected to category theory, homological algebra and the newer
qhomological algebra, topology or graph theory, showing the
importance of the concept.

Lagrange's Theorem for Hopf Monoids in Species
Following Radford's proof of Lagrange's theorem for pointed Hopf algebras,
we prove Lagrange's theorem for Hopf monoids in the category of
connected species.
As a corollary, we obtain necessary conditions for a given subspecies
$\mathbf k$ of a Hopf monoid $\mathbf h$ to be a Hopf submonoid: the quotient of
any one of the generating series of $\mathbf h$ by the corresponding
generating series of $\mathbf k$ must have nonnegative coefficients. Other
corollaries include a necessary condition for a sequence of
nonnegative integers to be the
dimension sequence of a Hopf monoid
in the form of certain polynomial inequalities, and of
a settheoretic Hopf monoid in the form of certain linear inequalities.
The latter express that the binomial transform of the sequence must be nonnegative.

The Face Semigroup Algebra of a Hyperplane Arrangement
This article presents a study of an algebra spanned by the faces of a
hyperplane arrangement. The quiver with relations of the algebra is
computed and the algebra is shown to be a Koszul algebra.
It is shown that the algebra depends only on the intersection lattice of
the hyperplane arrangement. A complete system of primitive orthogonal
idempotents for the algebra is constructed and other algebraic structure
is determined including: a description of the projective indecomposable
modules, the Cartan invariants, projective resolutions of the simple
modules, the Hochschild homology and cohomology, and the Koszul dual
algebra. A new cohomology construction on posets is introduced, and it is
shown that the face semigroup algebra is isomorphic to the cohomology
algebra when this construction is applied to the intersection lattice of
the hyperplane arrangement.

Endomorphisms of Kronecker Modules Regulated by Quadratic Algebra Extensions of a Function Field
The Kronecker modules $\mathbb{V}(m,h,\alpha)$, where $m$ is a positive integer, $h$ is
a height function, and $\alpha$ is a $K$linear functional on the
space $K(X)$ of rational functions in one variable $X$ over an
algebraically closed field $K$, are models for the family of all
torsionfree rank2 modules that are extensions of finitedimensional
rank1 modules. Every such module comes with a regulating polynomial
$f$ in $K(X)[Y]$. When the endomorphism algebra of $\mathbb{V}(m,h,\alpha)$ is
commutative and nontrivial, the regulator $f$ must be quadratic in
$Y$. If $f$ has one repeated root in $K(X)$, the endomorphism algebra
is the trivial extension $K\ltimes S$ for some vector space $S$. If
$f$ has distinct roots in $K(X)$, then the endomorphisms form a
structure that we call a bridge. These include the coordinate rings
of some curves. Regardless of the number of roots in the regulator,
those $\End\mathbb{V}(m,h,\alpha)$ that are domains have zero radical. In addition,
each semilocal $\End\mathbb{V}(m,h,\alpha)$ must be either a trivial extension
$K\ltimes S$ or the product $K\times K$.

Finite CohenMacaulay Type and Smooth NonCommutative Schemes
A commutative local CohenMacaulay ring $R$ of finite CohenMacaulay type is known to be an isolated
singularity; that is, $\Spec(R) \setminus \{ \mathfrak {m} \}$ is smooth.
This paper proves a noncommutative analogue. Namely, if $A$ is a
(noncommutative) graded ArtinSchelter \CM\ algebra which is fully
bounded Noetherian and
has finite CohenMacaulay type, then the noncommutative projective scheme determined by
$A$ is smooth.

Invariants and Coinvariants of the Symmetric Group in Noncommuting Variables
We introduce a natural Hopf algebra structure on the space of noncommutative
symmetric functions.
The bases for this algebra are indexed
by set partitions. We show that there exists a natural inclusion of the Hopf
algebra of noncommutative symmetric functions
in this larger space. We also consider this algebra as a subspace of
noncommutative polynomials and use it to
understand the structure of the spaces of harmonics and coinvariants
with respect to this collection of noncommutative polynomials and conclude
two analogues of Chevalley's theorem in the noncommutative setting.

Radical Ideals in Valuation Domains
An ideal $I$ of a ring $R$ is called a radical ideal if
$I={\mathcalR}(R)$ where ${\mathcal R}$ is a radical in the sense of
KuroshAmitsur. The main theorem of this paper asserts that if $R$
is a valuation domain, then a proper ideal $I$ of $R$ is a radical
ideal if and only if $I$ is a distinguished ideal of $R$ (the
latter property means that if $J$ and $K$ are ideals of $R$ such
that $J\subset I\subset K$ then we cannot have $I/J\cong K/I$ as
rings) and that such an ideal is necessarily prime. Examples are
exhibited which show that, unlike prime ideals, distinguished
ideals are not characterizable in terms of a property of the
underlying value group of the valuation domain.

Division Algebras of Prime Degree and Maximal Galois $p$Extensions
Let $p$ be an odd prime number, and let $F$
be a field of characteristic not $p$ and not containing
the group $\mu_p$ of $p$th roots of unity.
We consider cyclic $p$algebras over $F$ by descent from
$L = F(\mu_p)$. We generalize a theorem of Albert by
showing that if $\mu_{p^n} \subseteq L$, then a division
algebra $D$ of degree $p^n$ over $F$ is a cyclic
algebra if and only if there is $d\in D$ with $d^{p^n}\in
F  F^p$. Let $F(p)$ be the maximal $p$extension
of $F$. We show that $F(p)$ has a noncyclic algebra
of degree $p$ if and only if a certain eigencomponent of the
$p$torsion of $\Br(F(p)(\mu_p))$ is nontrivial.
To get a better understanding of $F(p)$, we consider
the valuations on $F(p)$ with residue characteristic
not $p$, and determine what residue fields and value
groups can occur. Our results support the conjecture
that the $p$ torsion in $\Br(F(p))$ is always trivial.

Endomorphism Rings of Finite Global Dimension
For a commutative local ring $R$, consider (noncommutative)
$R$algebras $\Lambda$ of the form $\Lambda = \operatorname{End}_R(M)$
where $M$ is a reflexive $R$module with nonzero free direct summand.
Such algebras $\Lambda$ of finite global dimension can be viewed as
potential substitutes for, or analogues of, a resolution of
singularities of $\operatorname{Spec} R$. For example, Van den Bergh
has shown that a threedimensional Gorenstein normal
$\mathbb{C}$algebra with isolated terminal singularities has a
crepant resolution of singularities if and only if it has such an
algebra $\Lambda$ with finite global dimension and which is maximal
CohenMacaulay over $R$ (a ``noncommutative crepant resolution of
singularities''). We produce algebras
$\Lambda=\operatorname{End}_R(M)$ having finite global dimension in
two contexts: when $R$ is a reduced onedimensional complete local
ring, or when $R$ is a CohenMacaulay local ring of finite
CohenMacaulay type. If in the latter case $R$ is Gorenstein, then
the construction gives a noncommutative crepant resolution of
singularities in the sense of Van den Bergh.
