Isotropic quadrangular algebras
Quadrangular algebras arise in the theory of Tits quadrangles. They are anisotropic if and only if the corresponding Tits quadrangle is, in fact, a Moufang quadrangle. Anisotropic quadrangular algebras were classified in the course of classifying Moufang polygons. In this paper we extend the classification of anisotropic quadrangular algebras to a classification of isotropic quadrangular algebras satisfying a natural non-degeneracy condition.
