Abstract
The study of orders over surfaces is an integral aspect of noncommutative algebraic geometry. Although there is a substantial amount known about orders, relatively few concrete examples have been constructed explicitly. Of those already constructed, most are del Pezzo orders, noncommutative analogues of del Pezzo surfaces, the simplest case. We reintroduce a noncommutative analogue of the well-known commutative cyclic covering trick and implement it to explicitly construct a vast collection of numerically Calabi-Yau orders, noncommutative analogues of surfaces of Kodaira dimension 0. This trick allows us to read off immediately such interesting geometric properties of the order as ramification data and a maximal commutative quotient scheme. We construct maximal orders, noncommutative analogues of normal schemes, on rational surfaces and ruled surfaces. We also use Ogg-Shafarevich theory to construct Azumaya algebras and, more generally, maximal orders on elliptically fibred surfaces.
