In the talk, the plan of attack on Kontsevich conjecture called lifting of symplectomorphisms is presented. Starting with a polynomial symplectomorphism, one can lift it to an automorphism of the power series completion of the Weyl algebra (with commutation relations preserved), after which one can successfully eliminate the relevant terms in the power series (given by the images of Weyl algebra generators under the lifted automorphism) to make them into polynomials. Thus one obtains a candidate for the Kontsevich isomorphism.

The procedure utilizes the following essential features. First, the Weyl algebra over an algebraically closed field of characteristic zero may be identified with a subalgebra in a certain reduced direct product (reduction modulo infinite prime) of Weyl algebras in positive characteristic - a fact that allows one to use the theory of Azumaya algebras and is particularly helpful when eliminating the infinite series. Second, the lifting is performed via a direct homomorphism Aut(W

In this talk we provide a characterization of a large family of indecomposable finite left cycle sets written in terms of dynamical extensions [2,4].

We introduce \emph{a regular extension} of braided (respectively, of symmetric) groups S,T as a braided (resp: symmetric) group (U,r) such that U=S⋈T is the double cross product of S and T, where (S,T) is a strong matched pair and the actions of (U,U) extend the actions of S and T. We study how the properties of the extension U=S⋈T depend on the properties of S and T.

We apply this to construct affine monomial algebras growing arbitrarily close to quadraticly, having arbitrarily long chains of prime ideals; this answers a question of Bergman. Previous known counterexamples to Bergman's question, due to Bell, are not constructive so there is much less control on their growth and structure; in particular, our examples are the first graded counterexamples to Bergman's question. On the other hand, graded algebras of quadratic growth have bounded chains of primes, thus our result is close to optimal.

As another application of our construction, we are able to show that monomial algebras defined by sparse enough subexponentially (resp. polynomially) many relations of each degree can be mapped onto prime monomial algebras of intermediate growth (resp. finite GK-dimension). This provides a strengthened analogy for the case of monomial algebras of Smoktunowicz's answer to questions of Zelmanov and Drensky in the case of sparsely related Golod-Shafarevich algebras.

In this talk I will shortly report on classes of non-commutative Noetherian rings, like enveloping algebras of Lie algebras and some Ore extensions over commutative rings, that satisfy a weak form of Matlis' theorem. Instead of dropping commutativity one might drop also the Noetherian condition in Matlis' theorem and I will finish my talk with some results on commutative, non-Noetherian rings that satisfy a weak form of Matlis' theorem. The later results were obtained jointly with P. Carvalho and P. Smith.

These solutions appear for the first time in S. Zakrzewski,

In the talk I will present the old and the new results about this type of solutions and I will select some open problems.

We show that nevertheless, every skew-brace A is completely described by a near-ring, the initial object of a category of near-rings associated to A. The terminal object is the above mentioned near-ring of self-maps. Moreover, it will be shown that near-rings and skew-braces admit a common specialization as well as a common generalization: They live on the same island (the same category) and give birth to a structure that is a near-ring and skew-brace at the same time. Birds of a feather flock together.

One of these problems is how to construct new families of solutions. Initial contribution to this aspect has been given by Etingof, Schedler, and Soloviev, who present a method to obtain a new solution via retraction. Recently, Vendramin in [9] and Bachiller, Cedó, Jespers, Okniński in [1] provide methods to obtain families of solutions starting from others, which are known.
