So if we call the real part of the complex algebra 'even' and the imaginary part 'odd' then this graded algebra is communitive but NOT graded commutative. so ab = ba for all a and b in C.

If we call the whole complex algebra 'even' and only zero (also the only element in the intersection) to be odd then it would be graded commutative.

so ab = (-1)^(|b|*|a|)*ba

but if the whole of C is even, won't the parity of |b| and |a| always be zero and therefore the multiplication would just be normal commutative?

P.S. The whole idea of grading is still uneasy with me (obviously..)
