TECHNION DEPARTMENT OF MATHEMATICS ALGEBRA SEMINAR DATE: Thursday, January 5, 2012 TIME: 13:30 PLACE: Amado 619 (note: change of room!!!) Speaker: Alexei Belov, Department of Mathematics, Bar-Ilan University Title: Full Quivers and Specht's Conjecture Abstract: (Joint work with Louis Rowen and Uzi Vishne) We will describe the structure of the full proof of Belov's theorem (2002) that the polynomial identities of an affine PI-algebra over a commutative Noetherian ring are finitely based. The main tool is the full quiver of a representable algebra. --------------------------------------------------------- Technion Math.
