In the non-simple case, the ideal structure must also be considered, and in the commutative case this tells the

whole story, but even in relatively well-behaved (non-commutative) cases the ideal structure intertwines

in a complicated way with the invariant referred to, unless this disappears completely, in which case the ideal

structure again determines the algebra.
