1. For a field $F$ and a family of central simple $F$-algebras we
prove that there exists a regular field extension $E/F$ preserving
indices of $F$-algebras such that all the algebras from the family
are cyclic after scalar extension by $E$.

2. Let $\cA$ be a central simple algebra over a field $F$ of
degree $n$ with a primitive $n$-th root of unity $\rho_n$. We
construct a quasi-affine $F$-variety $\Symb(\cA)$ such that, for a
field extension $L/F$, the variety $\Symb(\cA)$ has an $L$-rational point iff
$\cA \otimes_F L$ is a symbol algebra.

3. Let $\cA$ be a central simple algebra over a field $F$ of
degree $n$ and $K/F$ a cyclic field extension of degree $n$. We
construct a quasi-affine $F$-variety $C(\cA, K)$ such that, for a
field extension $L/F$ with the property $[K L:L]=[K:F]$ ,the variety $C(\cA,
K)$ has an $L$-rational point iff $K L$ is a subfield of $\cA \otimes_F L$.
