Noncommutative Galois Extensions and Ternary Clifford Analysis

  • Alexandre Trovon
  • Osamu Suzuki


In this paper we introduce the idea of Galois extension for a class of associative algebras and discuss binary and ternary Clifford algebras by such an algebraic construction. Nonion algebra is characterized by Galois extensions and a ternary structure is proposed for \({\mathfrak{su}(3)}\) leading to a duality for certain binary and ternary differential operators.
