To give a concrete example, we suppose that n = 3 and fix a Z-basis {σ1 , σ2 , σ3 } for L. 8. κ κp κb 0 0 0 0 0 3 (93) . 2+ 3+ 2 3 2 3+ 3 2 2 3 2 3 2 3+ 3 2 2 3 3+ 1 2 1 2+ 2 1 1 2 In each row, we have given κ by displaying its value at 3 i=1 i σi , and we 3 3 i=1 i σi , j=1 j σj have given . The list κp and κb by displaying their values on the pairs of associative 3-tori with involution up to bi-isomorphism is the corresponding list of tori ATIL (κ, κb ). 38 BRUCE ALLISON AND GEORGIA BENKART We finish this section by recording a lemma that will be needed in the next section.

C) Λan = i∈K (ρi + L) = i∈K (−ρi + L). (d) If Λ is free of rank n, then L is free of rank n. (e) rankA (Xan ) = |Λan /L| and rankA (X) = 2r + rankA (Xan ). (f) rankA (X) is finite if and only if |Λ/L| is finite. (g) If Λ is finitely generated, then rankA (X) is finite. Proof. (a) The first statement follows from (H4)(a) and (b); the second statement follows from the first; and then the third statement follows from (H5). σ (b) If σ ∈ Λan , then there exists a nonzero x ∈ Xan , so 0 = ξ(x, x) ∈ A2σ + and hence 2σ ∈ L+ .

Then write down representatives of the isometry classes of quadratic forms on L using the well-known classification (see [D, Chap. I, §16] or [AFY, Rem. 17]). Next, for each κ in the list, choose κb compatible with κ and satisfying (91), and then construct the associative L-torus with involution ATIL (κ, κb ). This gives the list of associative L-tori with involution up to isogradedisomorphism, and each torus in the list satisfies (92). 9. To give a concrete example, we suppose that n = 3 and fix a Z-basis {σ1 , σ2 , σ3 } for L.
