The isomorphism problem for multiparameter quantized Weyl algebras

  • K. R. Goodearl
  • J. T. Hartwig


In this note we solve the isomorphism problem for the multiparameter quantized Weyl algebras, in the case when none of the deformation parameters \(q_i\) is a root of unity, over an arbitrary field.
