Call R a TurkeyYam Ring if it is an Integral Domain and so that it has a size function d : R { } { , 1 , 2 ,... } with d ( ) d ( ) and with the following property: For all , R { } with not dividing there exist m,n R with m + n negationslash = 0 and d ( m + n ) < d ( ). Prove that a TurkeyYam Ring is a Principle Ideal Domain. Solution: Let I be an ideal of R . If I = { } then I = (0) and we are done. Otherwise, let be a nonzero element of I with minimal d ( ). We claim I = ( ). Otherwise, let I , negationslash ( ). Let m,n be as above. Then m + n I with a smaller size than , a contradiction. 2. Give the Prime Factorization in Z [ i ] of: 6 , 10 + 3 i, 4 + 7 i . Solution: 6 3 2 = ( i ) 3 (1 + i ) 2 10 + 3 i is prime as d (10 + 3 i ) = 109 is a prime in Z 4 + 7 i = (2 + i ) (3 + 2 i ) and both are primes as they have sizes 5 , 13, both primes in Z . 3. (*) Let a,b be relatively prime and nonzero....
