Lattice of Maximal-Primary Ideals in Quadratic Orders

Ryan Bridges, University of new mexico


An order is a subring of the ring of integers of an algebraic extension, Peruginelli and Zanardo classified the lattices of orders with prime index inside te ring of integers of quadratic extensions of the rational numbers. The lattices are quite striking and have different layered structure depending on whether the prime is inert, split, or ramified. This thesis considers the orders which have prime power index inside the Gaussian integers. This is a nice generalization of the work of Peruginelli and Zanardo, and succeeds in a few classifications of specific instances of orders derived from inert primes.
