Smash products and outer derivations
- 90 Downloads
LetR be a prime ring andL a Lie algebra acting onR as “Q-outer” derivations (if charR=p≠0, assume thatL is restricted). We study ideals and the center of the smash productR #U(L) (respectivelyR #u(L) ifL is restricted) and use these results to study the relationship betweenR and the ring of constantsR L . More generally, for any finite-dimensional Hopf algebraH acting onR such thatR #H satisfies the “ideal intersection property”, we useR #H to study the relationship betweenR and the invariant ringR H .
