Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


For an arbitrary finite-dimensional central simple algebra A, we define central simple algebras s2A and λ2A which are Brauer-equivalent to A ⊗ A. Following an idea of Tamagawa, a correspondence between involutions on A and rational points on the Brauer-Severi varieties of s2Aop and λ2Aop is established in a characteristic-free context.
