## Amenable algebras

##### Abstract:

We will begin with some motivation for the study of amenability for affine associative algebras, partially based on the better established theory of amenable groups. Following a paper of G. Elek, we will give three equivalent definitions of amenability for algebras and prove some of the basic algebraic properties of amenable algebras.
