A graded automorphism of an AS regular algebra A of GKdim n is called a quasi reflection of A if its trace has a pole of order n 71 at t1 mgr r where p1q1 y o G is called a reflection group on A if A6

Quasi Bi reflections Characterize C so that AC is a complete intersection In the commutative case it is necessary that G be generated by bi reflections g with all but 2 eigenvalues equal 1 For regular

W2 7 X2 4Y2Z is a commutative hypersurface Find the Quasi reflections of other Regular Algebras then the quasi reflections of A are either If HAt aft classical reflections or mystic reflections A quasi reflection g is a mystic reflection if the order of g is 4 and there is a basis b17 7bn of A1 such that gb1ib1 gb2 7172 and gbj bj forj 2 3 Many regular algebras have NO quasi reflections Question Are there regular algebras with other kinds of quasi reflections Noether s Bound Noether 1916 lGl is an upper bound on the degrees of the generators of the algebra of invariants Example b Let g 1 1 act on A k1xy Then 2 and invariants are generated by 01 X l y and 02 X3 l y3 So Noether bound fails Noether39s bound fails for kx17 7Xn in characteristic p and finding a reasonable bound is of interest Question Find an analogue of Noether39s bound say for skew polynomial rings Invariant Theory for Hopf Algebra Actions In a group action g ab g ag b There are algebras H7 A e 5 called Hopf algebras where the co multiplication A is used to define the action h ab The invariants of H on A are AHaeAlhaehaforaheH One can get invariant subrings A that are not isomorphic to A6 for any finite group We have a versions of Molien39s Theorem Watanabe39s Theorem and Stanley39s Theorem for A when H is finite dimensional and semi simple Question What conditions on H force A to be regular even
