Commutative Algebra 23

Localization and Spectrum Recall that the ideals of correspond to a subset of the ideals of A. If we restrict ourselves to prime ideals, we get the following nice bijection. Theorem 1. The above gives a bijection between Useful trick If … Continue reading

Commutative Algebra 22

Localization Recall that given an integral domain, there is a canonical way to construct the “smallest field containing it”, its field of fractions. Here, we will generalize this construction to arbitrary rings. We let A be a fixed ring throughout. Definition. … Continue reading
