TitleDefining relations of the noncommutative trace algebra of two matrices
Author(s) Francesca Benanti, Vesselin Drensky
TypeArticle in Journal
AbstractThe noncommutative (or mixed) trace algebra T n d is generated by d generic n × n matrices and by the algebra C n d generated by all traces of products of generic matrices, n , d ⩾ 2 . It is known that over a field of characteristic 0 this algebra is a finitely generated free module over a polynomial subalgebra S of the center C n d . For n = 3 and d = 2 we have found explicitly such a subalgebra S and a set of free generators of the S-module T 32 . We give also a set of defining relations of T 32 as an algebra and a Gröbner basis of the corresponding ideal. The proofs are based on easy computer calculations with standard functions of Maple, the explicit presentation of C 32 in terms of generators and relations, and methods of representation theory of the general linear group.
