A Sheaf Representation of Principally Quasi-Baer ∗-Rings
The concept of a central strict ideal in a principally quasi-Baer (p.q.-Baer) ∗-ring is introduced. It is proved that the set of all prime central strict ideals in a p.q.-Baer ∗-ring is an anti-chain with respect to set inclusion. We obtain a separation theorem, which ensures an existence of prime central strict ideals in a p.q.-Baer *-ring. It is proved that the set of all prime central strict ideals (not necessarily prime ideals) of a p.q.-Baer ∗-ring carries the hull-kernel topology. We investigate the Hausdorffness and the compactness of this topology. As an application of spectral theory, it is proved that p.q.-Baer ∗-rings have a sheaf representation with injective sections. The class of p.q.-Baer ∗-rings which have a sheaf representation with stalks to be p.q.-Baer ∗-rings is determined.
