Simple Group Graded Rings and Maximal Commutativity
(2009) In Preprints in Mathematical Sciences19990101+01:00 2009(6). Abstract
 In this paper we provide necessary and sufficient conditions for strongly group graded rings to be simple. For a strongly group graded ring R the grading group G acts, in a natural way, as automorphisms of the commutant of the neutral component subring R_e in R and of the center of R_e. We show that if R is a strongly Ggraded ring where R_e is maximal commutative in R, then R is a simple ring if and only if R_e is Gsimple (i.e. there are no nontrivial Ginvariant ideals). We also show that if R_e is commutative (not necessarily maximal commutative) and the commutant of R_e is Gsimple, then R is a simple ring. These results apply to Gcrossed products in particular. As an interesting example we consider the skew group algebra C(X) ⋊˜h Z... (More)
 In this paper we provide necessary and sufficient conditions for strongly group graded rings to be simple. For a strongly group graded ring R the grading group G acts, in a natural way, as automorphisms of the commutant of the neutral component subring R_e in R and of the center of R_e. We show that if R is a strongly Ggraded ring where R_e is maximal commutative in R, then R is a simple ring if and only if R_e is Gsimple (i.e. there are no nontrivial Ginvariant ideals). We also show that if R_e is commutative (not necessarily maximal commutative) and the commutant of R_e is Gsimple, then R is a simple ring. These results apply to Gcrossed products in particular. As an interesting example we consider the skew group algebra C(X) ⋊˜h Z associated to a topological dynamical system (X, h). We obtain necessary and sufficient conditions for simplicity of C(X) ⋊˜h Z with respect to the dynamics of the dynamical system (X, h), but also with respect to algebraic properties of C(X) ⋊˜h Z. Furthermore, we show that for any strongly Ggraded ring R each nonzero ideal of R has a nonzero intersection with the commutant of the center of the neutral component. (Less)
