Let $R$ be a regular UFD of zero characteristic, $I=(p)$ a prime ideal of $R$ and $Q(R)$ the field of fractions of $R$. Assume $R[a]$ is integral and flat over $R$, for some $a \notin Q(R)$. Is it ...
Suppose that $X=Spec(A)$ is an affine variety over an algebraically closed field $k$ which is normal and such that $Cl(X)=0$. I am interested in hypersurfaces of $X$ which again satisfy this ...
The following result is too elementary, both to state and to prove, not to be known. Can someone give a reference? Is there any hope if you don't suppose UFD (i.e. move that from the hypothesis to ...
All rings in this post are commutative and with $1$. Everyone knows the definition of a factorial ring, a. k. a. unique factorization domain (UFD). I have been wondering about some variations ...
