Simple subrings of algebras over fields
Abstract: In this note we shall prove that if is a not necessarily associative algebra over a field and is a simple subring of with centroid then .
Since we do not use polynomial identities in a proof of this result then we have obtained an affirmative answer to the 11th question from , posed by I. N. Herstein.
