"Examples of Regular Graded Skew Clifford Algebras of Global

Dimension 3"

Abstract: M. Artin, W. Schelter, J. Tate, and M. Van den Bergh introduced the notion of non-commutative regular algebras, and classified regular algebras of global dimension 3 on degree-one generators by using geometry (i.e., point schemes) in the late 1980's. Recently, T. Cassidy and M. Vancliff generalized the notion of a graded Clifford algebra and called it a graded skew Clifford algebra. In this talk, the focus will be to show that all classes of quadratic regular algebras of global dimension 3 are graded skew Clifford algebras or twists of Ore extensions of graded skew Clifford algebras.

A map of UTA may be found at http://www.uta.edu/maps/, and directions to UTA are on that website.
Note that PKH is the triangular building in the 3 pm position in that map. Select Pickard Hall from the building selector. PKH is next to the ``garage'' & is on Nedderman Dr between Planatarium Place (aka College St) & West St. West St is one-way northbound between W Mitchell St and 3rd St. Parking is available in the nearby (East and SE of PKH) parking lots with a UTA permit (but many people park there late on Fridays with no permit). There are a few metered parking spots on the East side of Pickard Hall on West St. Visitor (free), & metered, parking is available by Davis Hall (marked DH in SW part of the submap). A parking garage (expensive) is nextdoor to PKH (use West St to get to it). Note that if heading south on Cooper, then no left turn is allowed to Nedderman Dr.
Note that PKH 304 is on the 3rd floor of PKH; turn right out of elevator on 3rd floor.
