    • Abstract


      The question whether there exists a commutative ringA for which there is an element in the 2-torsion of the Brauer group not represented by a Clifford algebra was raised by Alex Hahn. Such an example is constructed in this paper and is arrived at using certain results of Parimala-Sridharan and Parimala-Scharlau which are also reviewed here.
