Many well-known local rings, including soluble Iwasawa algebras and certain completed quantum algebras, arise naturally as iterated skew power series rings. We calculate their Krull and global dimensions, obtaining lower bounds to complement the upper bounds obtained by Wang. In fact, we show that many common such rings obey a stronger property, which we call triangularity, and which allows us also to calculate their classical Krull dimension (prime length). Finally, we correct an error in the… 

Skew power series rings over a prime base ring

In this paper, we investigate the structure of skew power series rings of the form S = R [[ x ; σ, δ ]], where R is a complete, positively filtered ring and ( σ, δ ) is a skew derivation respecting

Filtered skew derivations on simple artinian rings

Given a complete, positively filtered ring ( R, f ) and a compatible skew derivation ( σ, δ ), we may construct its skew power series ring R [[ x ; σ, δ ]]. Due to topological obstructions, even if δ




In this paper, we contrast the structure of a noncommutative algebra R with that of the skew power series ring R[[y;d]]. Several of our main results examine when the rings R, Rd, and R[[y;d]] are

Localisations and Completions of Skew Power Series Rings

This paper is a natural continuation of the study of skew power series rings A initiated in [P. Schneider and O. Venjakob, On the codimension of modules over skew power series rings with applications

Localizations and completions of skew power series rings

This paper is a natural continuation of the study of skew power series rings $A=R[[t;\sigma,\delta]]$ initiated in an earlier work. We construct skew Laurent series rings $B$ and show the existence

Prime Ideals of q-Commutative Power Series Rings

We study the “q-commutative” power series ring R: = kq[[x1,...,xn]], defined by the relations xixj = qijxjxi, for mulitiplicatively antisymmetric scalars qij in a field k. Our results provide a

A noncommutative Weierstrass preparation theorem and applications to Iwasawa theory

In this paper and a forthcoming joint one with Y. Hachimori we study Iwasawa modules over an infinite Galois extension K of a number field k whose Galois group G=G(K/k) is isomorphic to the

On prime ideals of noetherian skew power series rings

We study prime ideals in skew power series rings T:= R[[y; τ, δ]], for suitably conditioned complete right Noetherian rings R, automorphisms τ of R, and τ-derivations δ of R. Such rings were

Pre-balanced dualizing complexes

We study pre-balanced dualizing complexes over noncommutative complete semilocal algebras and prove an analogue of Van den Bergh’s theorem [VdB, 6.3]. The relationship between pre-balanced dualizing
