DESCRIPTION:Speaker: Billy Woods - University of Essex\n\nTitle: Filtered
skew power series rings\n\n\nAbstract: Skew polynomial rings show up na
turally as group algebras\, universal enveloping algebras of Lie algebra
s\, coordinate rings of quantum groups\, and so on: they are a well-stud
ied classical object\, and their structure is reasonably well understood
. In this talk\, I’ll introduce and motivate the related notion of skew
power series rings\, explain why much less is known about them\, and pre
sent some recent work (joint with Adam Jones) that sheds light on the pr
ime spectra of these rings in some important cases of interest.\n\n \n\n
