    Title: Basic conjectures and preliminary results in non-commutative algebraic geometry

     Abstract: Algebraic geometry studies the structure of varieties over
     fields and commutative rings. Starting in the 1960's ring theorists
     (Cohn, Bergman and others) have tried to study the structure of varieties
     over some non-commutative rings (notably free associative algebras).

     The lack of unique factorization that they tackled and studied in detail,
