A ] 2 5 A ug 2 00 5 Factorization in Quantized Weyl Algebras


Let q be a nonzero scalar. The quantized Weyl algebra Aq 1 (F ) is a noncommutative ring generated by variables x, y such that yx = qxy + 1. We study factorization in Aq 1 (F ) and consider irreducible and prime elements. We classify irreducible quadratic forms and identify two important classes. A result on Ore extensions is needed to describe prime… (More)
