Ring-theoretic properties of Iwasawa algebras: a survey

  • K. Ardakov

  • K.A. Brown


This is a survey of the known properties of Iwasawa algebras, i.e., completed group rings of compact pp-adic analytic groups with coefficients the ring Zp\Bbb Z_p of pp-adic integers or the field Fp\Bbb F_p of pp elements. A number of open questions are also stated.
