Regular skew group rings

  • Ricardo Alfaro (a1), Pere Ara (a2) and Angel Del Río (a3)

Abstract

Let G be a group acting on a ring R. We study the problem of determining necessary and sufficient conditions in order that the skew group ring RG be von Neumann regular. Complete characterizations are given in some particular situations, including the case where all idempotents of R are central. For a regular ring R admitting a G-invariant pseudo-rank function N, with G finite, we obtain a necessary condition for RG being regular in terms of the induced action of G on the N-completion of R.
