An algebra $A$ is {\em homogeneous} if the automorphism group of $A$ acts transitively on the one dimensional subspaces of $A$. Suppose $A$ is a homogeneous algebra over an infinite field $k$. Let $L_a$ denote left multiplication by any nonzero element $a \in A$. Several results are proved concerning the structure of $A$ in terms of $L_a$. In particular, it is shown that $A$ decomposes as the direct sum $A = ker L_a \oplus Im L_a$. These results are then successfully applied to the problem of classifying the infinite homogeneous algebras of small dimension.


Membership to CARMA offers many benefits and is available by invitation to all University of Newcastle academic staff. Associate membership, also by invitation, is available to external researchers and practitioners for three-year renewable terms. Associate members are expected to visit CARMA with some frequency, typically for a total of three to four weeks in a year, and to be involved in one or more ongoing research projects with CARMA members. CARMA is able to assist with the travel and living costs of such visits.
