### Algebraic characterization of commutative rings of Krull dimension 1,2, or 3

A commutative ring $R$ (with $1$) is $0$-dimensional if and only if $R/\sqrt 0$ is von Neumann regular. Besides this result, there is a wealth of information about the algebraic structure of ...

### About the ring used in the definition of drinfeld modules. Why is that ring a dedekind domain?

Let $K/F$ be a function field with exact field of constants $F$ ($F$ is a finite field of characteristic $p$ prime). A prime in $K$ is a discrete valuation in $K$ containing $F$. It has a unique ...

### Two questions about finiteness of ideal classes in abstract number rings

Let us say that an abstract number ring is an integral domain $R$ which is not a field, and which has the "finite norms" property: for any nonzero ideal $I$ of $R$, the quotient $R/I$ is finite.
