Title: Images of multilinear polynomials evaluated on the
matrices of arbitrary order.
 
Speaker: Sergey Malev (Bar-Ilan)
 
Abstract: There is a Kaplansky problem: the only possible
images of multilinear polynomial evaluated on $n\times n$
matrices $M_n(K)$ are $\{0\},$ $K,$ $sl_n(K)$ or $M_n(K)$,
where $K$ is the set of scalar matrices. We established
Kaplansky problem for $n=2$.
 
For the case $n=3$ the situation is as follows: the only
possible images are $\{0\},$ $K,$ Image p is dense in
$sl_3(K)$ or dense in $M_3(K)$. In particular I would like to
show that almost all non diagonalisible matrices lay in Image
$p$ (if Im $p$ is dense in $M_3(K).$
 
For the general case of arbitrary $n$ I would like to say
about our general result: the only possible images of
multilinear polynomial evaluated on $n\times n$ matrices
$M_n(K)$ are $\{0\},$ $K$, the dense subset of $sl_n(K)$ or
the dense subset of $M_n(K)$.
 
You are cordially invited!
