It is shown that any finite-dimensional homomorphic image of an inverse limit of nilpotent not-necessarily-associative algebras over a field is nilpotent. More generally, this is true of algebras over a general commutative ring k, with “finitedimensional” replaced by “of finite length as a k-module.” These results are obtained by considering the multiplication algebra M(A) of an algebra A (the associative algebra of k-linear maps A → A generated by left and right multiplications by elements of… CONTINUE READING
