quotient ring

[′kwō·shənt ‚riŋ]
(mathematics)
A ring R / I whose elements are the cosets rI of a given ideal I in a given ring R, where the additive and multiplicative operations have the form: r1 I + r2 I ≡ (r1+ r2) I and r1 I · r2 I ≡ (r1· r2) I. Also known as factor ring; residue class ring.

Hotta-Springer [11] and Garsia-Procesi [9] discovered that the cohomology ring of the Springer fiber indexed by a partition p of n is isomorphic to certain quotient ring of F[X], which admits a graded [G.sub.n]-module structure corresponding to the modified Hall-Littlewood symmetric function [[??].sub.[mu]] (x; t) via the Frobenius characteristic map.
Throught this paper we will use the following notation: U will be the (two-sided) Utumi quotient ring of a ring R (sometimes, as in [1], U is called the symmetric ring of quotients).
Throughout the paper unless specifically stated, R always denotes a prime ring with center Z(R) and extended centroid C, right Utumi quotient ring U.

Certain orbits of the reflection group action give a basis for the quotient ring, from this they found a formula for the corresponding Littlewood-Richardson coefficients in their quotient ring which was equal to a formula obtained by Kac [17] and Walton [30] for fusion coefficients in a Wess-Zumino-Witten conformal field theory.
