where A and B are unital R-algebras and M is an (A, B)-bimodule. This **algebra** ᐁ, en- dowed with the usual formal **matrix** addition and multiplication, will be called a general- ized triangular **matrix** **algebra**. Many widely studied algebras, including upper-triangular **matrix** algebras, block-triangular **matrix** algebras, nest algebras, semi-nest algebras, and triangular Banach algebras, may be viewed as triangular algebras.

The methods of accounting modeling (from recording transactions to financial reporting) basically repeat the steps implemented in practice, by using certain numerical examples. Still the visible variety of accounting techniques complicates accounting system conceivability. The main assumption here relates to the evidence that one of the effective tools of creating accounting models can be mathematical modeling, particularly, the one which uses basic notions and operations of **matrix** **algebra**.

In this paper we analyze a key-exchange protocol based on tropical **matrix** **algebra** proposed in [4, Section 2]. Ideas similar to [4] were used before in the “classic” case, i.e., for algebras with familiar addition and multiplication. However in classic case these schemes were shown to be vulnerable to various linear **algebra** attacks. The idea to use an **algebra** with another addition and multiplication came as an attempt to avoid those attacks, as there are no known algorithms for solving systems of linear equations in tropical sense (it is an active field of research currently).

Technology Note: In the previous sec on, we learned how to ﬁnd the reduced row echelon form of a **matrix** using Gaussian elimina on – by hand. We need to know how to do this; understanding the process has beneﬁts. However, actually execu ng the process by hand for every problem is not usually beneﬁcial. In fact, with large systems, compu ng the reduced row echelon form by hand is eﬀec vely impossible. Our main concern is what “the rref” is, not what exact steps were used to arrive there. Therefore, the reader is encouraged to employ some form of technology to ﬁnd the reduced row echelon form. Computer programs such as Mathema ca, MATLAB, Maple, and Derive can be used; many handheld calculators (such as Texas Instruments calculators) will perform these calcula ons very quickly.

given atom I overlaps a funtion on a dierent atom J , then all the funtions on both atoms overlap, giving rise to a blok of m J × n I **matrix** elements whih are all nonzero, where n I is the number of (olumn-) funtions on atom I and m J is the number of (row-) funtions on atom J . Therefore, rather than indexing individual nonzero elements, a large saving in both memory and CPU time is obtained by indexing nonzero atom-bloks. This form of sparse bloked

Determine the political composition of the United States Congress during the 20th Century by decade, first researching the types of party affiliations (e.g. Republican) and the associated numbers (of party representatives) in the House of Representatives and the Senate. Use matrices to represent tabular information for each, with a third **matrix** that displays the numbers of the U.S. Congress members by party affiliation for each decade. Using an historical timeline, identify significant laws that were enacted during each decade in the activity above. Shirley is interested in estimating how much she will be earning in the future if she stays with the same company. Shirley’s salary is $35,000 per year.

In this course, scholars will develop fluency with linear, quadratic, and exponential functions in order to prepare for the IB Diploma Program math courses. Some of the overarching ideas in the **Algebra** 1 course include: the notion of functions, solving equations, rates of change and growth patterns, graphs as representations of functions, and modeling. Key concepts from other MYP subjects that could be used within the **algebra** branch include aesthetics (patterns and sequences, graphs), change (algebraic expressions, transformations), connections (patterns and sequences, functions and graphs), systems (functions, series), and time, place, and space

described in [12]: Each such primitive ideal is the annihilator of a simple highest weight U (s)- module with nonzero central charge, [12, Corollary 30]. In [12], the author mentioned that “the problem of classification of primitive ideals in U (s) for zero central charge might be very difficult”. In [5], using the classification of prime ideals of the **algebra** A := U (s)/(Z) ([5, Theorem 2.8]), a classification of primitive ideals of U (s) with zero central charge is given. In this paper, using a different (ring theoretic) approach, all the primitive ideals (including with zero central charge) are classified and their generators are given explicitly, see Theorem 4.4.

Also, the unification of the mathematical concepts can be done easily with the help of **algebra** and hence, it is known as an important part of Mathematics. In **algebra**, usually, there is an involvement of the numbers and operations in terms of geometry and data analysis. Hence, **algebra** can be regarded as a simple language which is used to solve those problems which are not solved with the help of numbers alone. Here modeling of the real-world problems is done with the help of the symbols like the alphabets x,y and z etc for the representation of the numbers. The current paper highlights the role of **algebra** in mathematics.

Applications. Applications and computing are interesting and vital aspects of the subject. Consequently, each chapter closes with a selection of topics in those areas. These give a reader a taste of the subject, discuss how Linear **Algebra** comes in, point to some further reading, and give a few exercises. They are brief enough that an instructor can do one in a day’s class or can assign them as projects for individuals or small groups. Whether they figure formally in a course or not, they help readers see for themselves that Linear **Algebra** is a tool that a professional must have.

So far we have studied about addition and subtraction of vectors. An other algebraic operation which we intend to discuss regarding vectors is their product. We may recall that product of two numbers is a number, product of two matrices is again a **matrix**. But in case of functions, we may multiply them in two ways, namely, multiplication of two functions pointwise and composition of two functions. Similarly, multiplication of two vectors is also defined in two ways, namely, scalar (or dot) product where the result is a scalar, and vector (or cross) product where the result is a vector. Based upon these two types of products for vectors, they have found various applications in geometry, mechanics and engineering. In this section, we will discuss these two types of products.

inner derivation ad(a) acts locally nilpotently. Little is known about these algebras in the case when N(a) 6= C(a). In particular, it is not known of whether these algebras are finitely generated or Noetherian. Though, a positive answer to Dixmier’s Fourth Problem [8], which is still open, would imply that the algebras N (a) are finitely generated and Noetherian. In case of homogeneous elements of the Weyl **algebra** A 1 , a positive answer to Dixmier’s Fourth Problem was given in [4].

In this paper we have introduced a hierarchical algebraic structure called multisorted tree **algebra**. A brief description of results in multisorted **algebra** has been given in the first section. Then the concept of aggregation operator has been presented as an operator that generatesa Σ -**algebra** from different other Σ -algebras. It has also been shown that aggregation operators generate a Σ -homomorphism form a given family of Σ -homomorphisms between the aggregated Σ -algebras. Next, multisorted tree **algebra** has been constructed by placing multisorted **algebra** at the bottom of a hierarchy, and by placing at other nodes the aggregation of multisorted **algebra** placed at their immediate subordinate’s nodes. Furthermore, an analysis about the features and the place of multisorted tree **algebra** in the universal **algebra** theory has been briefly discussed. Among the perspectives generated by this paper, investigations on mathematical features and approaches to the study of multisorted tree **algebra** are necessary. One of the major reasons to engage in these further studies is the fact that they represent a hierarchy of algebraic structures that cannot be classified in classic varieties of universal **algebra** theory and also, they are not graphs of categories of universal algebras of given signature. The multisorted tree **algebra** concept may also be expanded by investigating aggregations of universal algebras of different signatures, or the construction of aggregations on a graph that are not trees. Among the application perspectives, multisorted tree **algebra** seems to give to computer scientists a different abstract data type described as a hierarchy of data types. It’s not pretentious to think that this new concepts could also give an approach to assemble abstract data type architectures and therefore expand results where classic universal algebras has contributed in theoretical computer science domains including for example Ë -calculus [18], type theory [19], data structures [20] and algebraic specification [21, 7].
