= cfw_ 0 for every choice of nonzero subrings
Solution: Suppose that R is a nonzero subring of Q. Then there exist positive integers r, s with r/s R,
and so r =
Noetherian Rings and Ane Algebraic Sets
Denition: A commutative ring R is said to be Noetherian or to satisfy
the ascending chain condition on ideals (or A.CC on ideals) if there is no
innite increasing chain of ideals in R, i.e., whenever I1 I2 I3 is

Let k be a eld, and A be a subset of An , the ane n-space over k .
I (A) = cfw_f k [x1 , . . . , xn ] | f (a1 , . . . , an ) = 0 for all (a1 , . . . , an ) A

Abstract: The presentation will prove the existence and uniqueness of
nite elds of order pn for every prime p and every positive integer n.
Denition : If F is a eld containing the eld K , then F is said to
be an extensionf ield of K . The mu

The Radical of an Ideal
Abstract: The radical of an ideal plays an important role in commutative
algebra, when we are concerned with the geometry aspects. This is due to the
bijection existing between varieties and radical ideals.

1. Let R be a commutative ring with identity, and let S be a multiplicatively closed subset
of R containg neither 0 nor any zero divisors.
(a) Let I be an ideal of S 1 R.
(i ) Prove that I R = (we regard R to be a subrin

1. Recall that for any nonempty set X and any ring R, the set of all functions from X to R
forms a ring with coordinatewise addition and multiplication, and we denoted this ring by
T = F (X, R).
(a) Prove that for any ch

1. (a) Prove that x2 2 is irreducible in Z[ 2][x] (you may use the fact that Z[ 2] is a
Euclidean domain see Problem 9 in Section 8.1).
Solution: Since Z[ 2] is a Euclidean domain, it is a UFD and so we may apply Eisenst

1. (a) Let R be a ring, and let a R. Let Ra denote the intersection of all subrings of R
that contain a. Prove that Ra is a subring of R.
Solution: First, we note that a Ra , so Ra = . Let r, s Ra . Then for every ideal I of R that
contains a
