Decidability of theories of modules over canonical algebras of tubular type

Submission date: 10 March 2016


We show that the common theory of all modules over a canonical algebra of tubular type (over a recursively given algebraically closed field) is decidable. This result supports a long standing conjecture of Mike Prest which says that a finite-dimensional algebra (over a recursively given field) is tame if and only its common theory of modules is decidable. These are the first examples of non-domestic algebras which have been shown to have decidable theory of modules.
