Thu, 09 Oct 2014 09:48:11 +0000
http://www.hindawi.com/journals/algebra/2014/890312/
We investigate prime and primary elements in a compactly generated multiplicative lattice . By a counterexample, it is shown that a primary element in need not be primary. Some characterizations of primary and prime elements in are obtained. Finally, some results for almost prime and almost primary elements in with characterizations are obtained.

The Relatively Free Groups Satisfy Noncentral Commutative Transitivity
Wed, 01 Oct 2014 09:37:35 +0000
http://www.hindawi.com/journals/algebra/2014/379030/
We prove that a free group, , relative to the variety, , of all groups simultaneously nilpotent of class at most and metabelian is such that the centralizer of every noncentral element is abelian. We relate that result to the model theory of such groups as well as a quest to find a relative analog in of a classical theorem of Benjamin Baumslag. We also touch briefly
on similar considerations in the varieties of nilpotent groups.

of unitary modules over a commutative ring with nonzero identity. We investigate
some basic properties of almost semiprime and weakly semiprime
submodules and give some characterizations of them, especially for (finitely
generated faithful) multiplication modules.

The Reducibility of a Special Binary Pentanomial
Tue, 02 Sep 2014 12:43:02 +0000
http://www.hindawi.com/journals/algebra/2014/482837/
Swan’s theorem determines the parity of the number of irreducible factors of a binary trinomial. In this work, we study the parity of the number of irreducible factors for a special binary pentanomial with even degree , where , and exactly one of , and is odd. This kind of irreducible pentanomials can be used for a fast implementation of trace and square root computations in finite fields of characteristic 2.

For every matrix in , it is shown that the varieties specified by the leading minors of orders from 1 to have the same number of points in . Further properties are derived, which show that sets of varieties, tied to a given Hankel matrix, resemble a set of hyperplanes as regards the number of points of their intersections.

Sun, 27 Apr 2014 08:50:15 +0000
http://www.hindawi.com/journals/algebra/2014/263605/
We establish new results concerning endomorphisms of a finite chain, if the cardinality of the image of such endomorphism is no more than some fixed number. The semiring of all such endomorphisms can be seen as a simplex whose vertices are the constant endomorphisms. We explore the properties of these simplices.

On Integral Manifolds for Leibniz Algebras
Thu, 24 Apr 2014 08:37:41 +0000
http://www.hindawi.com/journals/algebra/2014/875981/
We discuss several partial solutions to the socalled “coquecigrue problem” of Loday; these solutions parallel, but also generalize in several directions, the classical Lie groupLie algebra correspondence. Our study highlights some clear similarities between the split and nonsplit cases and leads us to a general unifying scheme that provides an answer to the problem of the algebraic structure of a coquecigrue.

Thu, 17 Apr 2014 10:08:48 +0000
http://www.hindawi.com/journals/algebra/2014/701298/
We present a method to iteratively construct new bent functions of variables from a bent function of variables and its cyclic shift permutations using minterms of variables and minterms of 2 variables. In addition, we provide the number of bent functions of variables that we can obtain by applying the method here presented, and finally we compare this method with a previous one introduced by us in 2008 and with the Rothaus and MaioranaMcFarland constructions.

Vertex Coalgebras, Coassociator, and Cocommutator Formulas
Sun, 02 Mar 2014 13:26:01 +0000
http://www.hindawi.com/journals/algebra/2014/861768/
Based on the definition of vertex coalgebra introduced by Hubbard, 2009, we
prove that this notion can be reformulated using coskew symmetry, coassociator and
cocommutator formulas without restrictions on the grading. We also prove that a
vertex coalgebra can be defined in terms of dual versions of the axioms of Lie conformal
algebra and differential algebra.

Mon, 09 Dec 2013 16:00:41 +0000
http://www.hindawi.com/journals/algebra/2013/565848/
We introduce the notion of ordered quasiideals of regular ordered semigroups and study the basic properties of ordered quasiideals of ordered semigroups. We also characterize regular ordered semigroups in terms of their ordered quasiideals, ordered right ideals, and left ideals. Finally, we have shown that (i) a partially ordered semigroup is regular if and only if for every ordered biideal , every ordered ideal , and every ordered quasiideal , we have and (ii) a partially ordered semigroup is regular if and only if for every ordered quasiideal , every ordered left ideal , and every ordered rightideal , we have that .

Two Interacting Coordinate Hopf Algebras of Affine Groups of Formal Series on a Category
Thu, 19 Sep 2013 13:14:34 +0000
http://www.hindawi.com/journals/algebra/2013/370618/
A locally finite category is defined as a category in which every arrow admits only finitely many
different ways to be factorized by composable arrows. The large algebra of such categories over
some fields may be defined, and with it a group of invertible series (under multiplication). For
certain particular locally finite categories, a substitution operation, generalizing the usual substitution
of formal power series, may be defined, and with it a group of reversible series (invertible
under substitution). Moreover, both groups are actually affine groups. In this contribution, we
introduce their coordinate Hopf algebras which are both free as commutative algebras. The
semidirect product structure obtained from the action of reversible series on invertible series by
antiautomorphisms gives rise to an interaction at the level of their coordinate Hopf algebras
under the form of a smash coproduct.

Construction and Composition of Rooted Trees via Descent Functions
Tue, 27 Aug 2013 16:06:44 +0000
http://www.hindawi.com/journals/algebra/2013/543913/
We propose a novel approach for studying rooted trees by using functions that we will call descent functions. We provide a construction method for rooted trees that allows to study their properties through the use of descent functions. Moreover, in this way, we are able to compose rooted trees with each other. Such a new composition of rooted trees is a very powerful tool applied in this paper in order to obtain important results as the creation of new rational and Pythagorean trees.

We present some applications of strict graded categorical groups to the construction of the obstruction of an equivariant kernel and to the classification of equivariant group extensions which are central ones.

On QuasiDense Submodules and Pure Envelopes of QTAG Modules
Mon, 29 Jul 2013 10:40:07 +0000
http://www.hindawi.com/journals/algebra/2013/873193/
A module over an associative ring with unity is a QTAG module if every finitely generated submodule of any homomorphic image of is a direct sum of uniserial modules. There are many fascinating properties of QTAG modules of which pure submodules and high submodules are significant. A submodule is quasidense in if is divisible, for every pure submodule of containing Here we study these submodules and obtain some interesting results. Motivated by neat envelope, we also define pure envelope of a submodule as the pure submodule if has no direct summand containing We find that pure envelopes of have isomorphic basic submodules, and if is the direct sum of uniserial modules, then all pure envelopes of are isomorphic.

A Note on Hobby’s Theorem of Finite Groups
Sun, 07 Jul 2013 08:56:25 +0000
http://www.hindawi.com/journals/algebra/2013/135045/
It is well known that the Frattini subgroups of any finite groups are nilpotent. If a finite group is not nilpotent, it is not the Frattini subgroup of a finite group. In this paper, we mainly discuss what kind of finite nilpotent groups cannot be the Frattini subgroup of some finite groups and give some results. Moreover, we generalize Hobby’s Theorem.

On Cogenerated Commutative Unital Algebras
Wed, 05 Jun 2013 13:38:42 +0000
http://www.hindawi.com/journals/algebra/2013/452862/
GelfandNaimark's theorem states that every commutative algebra is isomorphic to a complex valued algebra of continuous functions over a suitable compact space. We observe that for a completely regular space , is denseseparable if and only if is cogenerated if and only if every family of maximal ideals of with zero intersection has a subfamily with cardinal number less than and zero intersection. This gives a simple characterization of cogenerated commutative unital algebras via their maximal ideals.

Wronskian Envelope of a Lie Algebra
Wed, 29 May 2013 10:56:18 +0000
http://www.hindawi.com/journals/algebra/2013/341631/
The famous PoincaréBirkhoffWitt theorem states that a Lie algebra, free as a module, embeds
into its associative envelope—its universal enveloping algebra—as a subLie algebra for the usual commutator Lie bracket. However, there is another functorial way—less known—to associate a Lie algebra to an associative algebra and inversely. Any commutative algebra equipped with a derivation , that is, a commutative differential algebra, admits a Wronskian bracket under which it becomes a Lie algebra. Conversely, to any Lie algebra a commutative differential algebra is universally associated, its Wronskian envelope, in a way similar to the associative envelope. This contribution is the beginning of an investigation of these relations between Lie algebras and differential algebras which is parallel to the classical theory. In particular, we give a sufficient condition under which a Lie algebra may be embedded into its Wronskian envelope, and we present the construction of the free Lie algebra with this property.

Recent Progress on Submersions: A Survey and New Properties
Sun, 12 May 2013 13:54:14 +0000
http://www.hindawi.com/journals/algebra/2013/128064/
This paper is a survey about recent progress on submersive morphisms of schemes combined with new results that we prove. They concern the class of quasicompact universally subtrusive morphisms that we introduced about 30 years ago. They are revisited in a recent paper by Rydh, with substantial complements and key results. We use them to show ArtinTatelike results about the 14th problem of Hilbert, for a base scheme either Noetherian or the spectrum of a valuation domain. We look at faithfully flat morphisms and get “almost” ArtinTatelike results by considering the Goldman (finite type) points of a scheme. Bjorn Poonen recently proved that universally closed morphisms are quasicompact. By introducing incomparable morphisms of schemes, we are able to characterize universally closed surjective morphisms that are either integral or finite. Next we consider pure morphisms of schemes introduced by Mesablishvili. In the quasicompact case, they are universally schematically dominant morphisms. This leads us to a characterization of universally subtrusive morphisms by purity. Some results on the schematically dominant property are given. The paper ends with properties of monomorphisms and topological immersions, a dual notion of submersions.
