Manny's Research and Papers
My research interests lie in Ring Theory (both noncommutative and commutative rings)
and Noncommutative Geometry (including noncommutative algebraic geometry).
I am also interested in cases where these ideas intersect with the study of category theory,
operator algebras, and quantum physics.
Here are some preprints of my
