Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


This paper is concerned with the completion of the proof of the Bergman centralizer theorem using generic matrices based on our previous quantization proof (Kanel-Belov et al. in Commun Algebra 46:2123–2129, 2018). Additionally, we establish that the algebra of generic matrices with characteristic coefficients is integrally closed.
