## Ring Theory Learning Seminar

**Patrick Naylor, Pure Mathematics, University of Waterloo**

"Semisimplicity and the Hopkins--Levitski Theorem"

This semester we'll be meeting weekly to learn more about ring theory, mostly going through Lam's two books --- there are many interesting results in those books which will be "good to know". Starting off, we'll aim to learn the Hopkins--Levitski Theorem, one of whose (many) consequences is that the descending chain condition *implies* the ascending chain condition. Everyone is welcome. See you there!
