### Finding if an ideal is the radical of another one

Let's suppose we have, in the ring $\mathbb{Z} [x,y,z,w,v]$, the following polynomials: $f=xw-yz$, $g=x^2z-y^3$, $h=yw^2-z^3$, $k=xz^2-y^2w$. The question is to prove that $I=(f,g,h,k)$ is the radical ...

### Quotient rings of integral quaternion rings

I'm having a hard time finding information about the quotient rings of the Lipschitz quaternions and the Hurwitz quaternions. The Lipschitz quaternions are defined as the quaternions with integral ...

### Is $(I(R:_{Q(R)} I))^n$ generated by $(fI)^n$ as $f$ varies over $(R:_{Q(R)} I)$?

Let $(R, \mathfrak m)$ be a Noetherian local domain of dimension $1$ which is not a UFD. Let $Q(R)$ be the fraction field of $R$. If $I\subsetneq \mathfrak m$ is a non-zero, non-principal ideal of $R$ ...

### When $\langle u,v,w \rangle$ is a maximal ideal in $\mathbb{C}[x,y]$?

Let $u,v,w \in \mathbb{C}[x,y]$ and let $\langle u,v,w \rangle$ be the ideal generated by $u,v,w$. It is known that for two elements the following result holds: $\langle u,v \rangle$ is a maximal ...

### Ideals of Laurent polynomial ring over matrix ring

Let $K$ be a field. Let $R=M_2(K)\langle x,x^{-1}\rangle$ be the ring obtained from the matrix ring $M_2(K)$ by adjoining two elements $x$ and $x^{-1}$ which are inverse to each other ($x$ and $x^{-1}$...

### Gelfand's representation on matrices: construct maximal ideal in matrix algebra

I would like to see a constructive proof (some algorithm?) of the following statement: Let $A_1, A_2, \dotsc ,A_k \in M_n(\mathbb C)$ be some commuting matrices, let $B$ be the commutative algebra (...

### Is the span of all nilpotent ideals also a nilpotent ideal?

Given a non-zero Lie algebra $\mathcal{L}$ over $\mathbb{C}$, we define $\mathcal{L}^2 = \big[\mathcal{L}, \mathcal{L} \big] = \big\{ [x, y]: x, y\in \mathcal{L} \big\}$, and for any $k\in\mathbb{N}$ ...

### Ideals: If $\langle f_1,f_2 \rangle = \langle g_1,g_2 \rangle$, then $\langle f_1-\lambda,f_2-\mu \rangle = \langle g_1-\delta,g_2-\epsilon \rangle$?

The following question appears in MSE without answers. Let $f_1,f_2,g_1,g_2 \in \mathbb{C}[x,y]-\mathbb{C}$. Assume that $\langle f_1,f_2 \rangle = \langle g_1,g_2 \rangle \subsetneq \mathbb{C}[x,y]$, ...

### Trying to prove a seemingly easy fact on ideals of ternary C*-algebras

Currently I'm reading the paper by Abadie and Ferraro titled Applications of ternary rings to $C^*$-algebras. Recall that a $C^{\ast}$-ternary ring is a complex Banach space $M$, equipped with a ...

### Do relatively prime polynomials $f$ and $g$ in $k[x,y]$ generate an ideal of finite codimension?

Let $k$ be a field and $f,g \in k[x,y]$ be two non-constant polynomials in two variables. Is it true that the following conditions are equivalent: $f$ and $g$ are relatively prime in $k[x,y]$, in the ...

### Extension of the radical and radical of the extension of an ideal

If $A$ is a commutative ring, $I \subset A$ an ideal and $f:A \rightarrow B$ a ring homomorphism, then the extension of $I$, $I^e = \langle f(a): a \in I \rangle$ does not commute with the radical, I ...

### When do the kernels of module homomorphisms between rings whose kernels contain a given fixed ideal contain every prime ideal over it?

$\DeclareMathOperator{\Hom}{Hom}$All our rings are commutative with unity and, if necessary, we can suppose that they are actually polynomial rings over a field in finitely many variables where the ...

### Is the kernel of an action of a Hopf algebra on an algebra a biideal?

I think, this must be simple, but I am not a specialist in this field, so excuse me. I asked this a week ago at MSE, but without success. S.Dascalescu, C.Nastasescu and S.Raianu define the action of a ...
