Nondegenerate Pairings First let`s straighten out something that was

... g: A ⊗ A → C by g(a ⊗ b) = tr(La Lb ) where La is left multiplication by a ∈ A: La : A → A b → ab Show that g is nondegenerate. Any algebra has a pairing of the above form; if the pairing is nondegenerate the algebra is semisimple. This is either a definition or a theorem depending on your taste: if ...
