"When is the stable category abelian?"
Abstract.
We will provide a complete answer to the above question for left hereditary rings. More importantly, we observe tight and rather surprising connections between the properties of the ring and the properties of its (projectively) stable module category.
This is joint work with Dali Zangurashvili.

"Integer-valued Polynomials on Noncommutative Rings and Algebras"
Abstract
Given a commutative integral domain $D$ with field of fractions $k$, the classical ring of integer-valued polynomials over $D$ is $\mathrm{Int}(D) := \{f (x) \in k[x] \mid f (D) \subseteq D\}$. We will discuss a generalization of this construction to sets of polynomials that act on $D$-algebras. When $A$ is a torsion-free $D$-algebra that is finitely generated as a $D$-module, we define $\textrm{Int}(A) := \{f (x) \in B[x] \mid f (A) \subseteq A\}$, where $B$ is the extension of $A$ to a $k$-algebra. The set $\mathrm{Int}(A)$ consists of polynomials with non-commuting coefficients and is always a left $A$-module. In certain cases (such as when $A$ is a matrix algebra or - more generally - is generated by units) $\mathrm{Int}(A)$ is actually a ring, although it is not known whether this is true in general. We will discuss the current known theorems regarding $\mathrm{Int}(A)$ and other associated objects; present interesting connections that arise involving commutative rings, noncommutative rings, and finite rings; and mention open problems and possibilities for future research.
