Ring Theory

Local ring proof

A local ring is commutative with identity which has a unique maximal ideal. Prove that R is local if and only if the non-units of R form an ideal. I need a detailed, rigorous proof of this with explanation of the steps so I can learn. Thank you.

Finding the Additive Inverse and Verifying the Subset of a Ring

What is the additive inverse of each element in the ring R described in Example 3.4? Verify that the subset {u,v} of the ring R in Example 3.4 is a subring. Show that after a change of notation this is the same ring as described in Example 3.5. For the ring R described in Example 3.4, use the tables to verify each of the f

Commutative Ring Proof

Let R be a commutative ring with 1. Prove that if (a,b)=1 and a divides bc, then a divides c. More generally, show that if a divides bc with nonzero a,b then a/(a,b) divides c. (Here (a,b) denotes the g.c.d. of a and b).

Ring Proof: Idemopotents and Nilpotents

Let R = C([0, 1]) be the ring of continuous real-valued functions on the interval [0, 1], with the usual definitions of sum and product of functions from calculus. Show that f in R is a zero divisor if and only if f is not identically zero and { x | f(x) = 0 } contains an open interval. What are the idempotents of this ring? W

Algebraic Number Theory Element

Recall that an element a is called algebraic over a ring (or field) R if a is the root of some polynomial in R[x]. Is the element a = 2/5 + i/3, (R= the integers) algebraic over the ring (or field) R? If so, give a polynomial in R[x] which has a as a root.

Logic and validity of arguments

Hi Shrikant, I wonder if your can help me with this: 1) Determine whether the argument is valid or invalid. A tree as green leaves or the tree does not produce oxygen. This tree has green leaves. ------------------------------------------------------------- Therefore:. This tree does not produce oxyge

Local Rings and Maximal Ideals

A commutative ring R is called a local ring if it has a unique maximal ideal. Prove that if R is a local ring with maximal ideal M then every element of (R-M) is a unit. Prove conversely that if R is a commutative ring with 1 in which the set of non-units forms an ideal M, then R is a local ring with unique maximal ideal M.

Prove conversely that a subring of 0 containing the

Short Exact Sequences

Let R be a subring of a ring S and let 0 -> M -> N -> P -> 0 be a short exact sequence of S-modules. Prove or disprove the following statements: (i) If the sequence is split over S, then it is split over R. (ii) If the sequence is split over R, then it is split over S. See the attached file.

Ring Theory Problem

If R is a ring and p(x) is included in R[x] then f(x) is the associated polynomial function from R to R. Find a p(x) included in Zmod2[x] such that f(x)=0 for all x included in zmod2. I know that Zmod2 is all the polynomials whose coefficients are 0 and 1 but I have no idea what I am I trying to look for.
