PRIME SPECTRA OF QUANTIZED COORDINATE RINGS
K. R. Goodearl
This paper is partly a report on current knowledge concerning the struc
ture of (generic) quantized coordinate rings and their prime spectra, and
partly propaganda in support of the conjecture that since these algebras
share many common properties, there must be a common basis on which to
treat them. The first part of the paper is expository. We survey a num
ber of classes of quantized coordinate rings, as well as some related algebras
that share common properties, and we record some of the basic properties
known to occur for many of these algebras, culminating in stratifications of
