Commutative Algebra 44

Fractional Ideals Throughout this article, let A be an integral domain and K its field of fractions. We do not assume the ring to be noetherian. The objective here is to develop the theory of multiplying and dividing certain classes of non-zero … Continue reading

Commutative Algebra 16

Gcd and Lcm We assume A is an integral domain throughout this article. If A is a UFD, we can define the gcd (greatest common divisor) and lcm (lowest common multiple) of two elements as follows. For , we can write the … Continue reading

Introduction to Ring Theory (3)

Ideals and Ring Quotients Suppose I is a subgroup of (R, +). Since + is abelian, I is automatically a normal subgroup and we get the group quotient (R/I, +). One asks when we can define the product operation on R/I. To be specific, each … Continue reading
