|Title:||Generating an algebra from the probabilistic standpoint|
|Seminar:||Algebra and Number Theory Seminar|
|Speaker:||Bogdan Petrenko, SUNY Brockport|
|Let A be a ring whose additive group is free abelian of finite rank. The topic of this talk is the following question: what is the probability that several random elements of A generate it as a ring? After making this question precise I will show that it has an interesting answer which can be interpreted as a local-global principle. Some applications will be discussed. This talk will be based on my joint work with with Rostyslav Kravchenko (University of Chicago) and Marcin Mazur (Binghamton University).|
