### Is the integral closure of a henselian local domain of dimension $1$ again local?

Let $(R,\mathfrak m)$ be a local domain of dimension $1$. Let $\overline R$ be the integral closure of $R$ in the field of fractions $Q(R)$. If $R$ is henselian, then is $\overline R$ also a local ...

### Finite monomorphism $A \to B$ with reduced $A$ and special fiber implies $B$ reduced

I have a question about correctness of following statement claimed here in $\boxed{2} \$: Let $k$ arbitrary field, let $f : X \longrightarrow Y$ be a finite dominant morphism between finite type $k$-...

### On $\text{depth}_S\left(\dfrac {S}{JS+xS}\right)$, when $\text{depth}_R(R/J)=0$, and $R\to S$ is a certain flat map of local rings

Let $(R, \mathfrak m) \xrightarrow{\phi} (S,\mathfrak n)$ be a flat homomorphism of local rings such that $\mathfrak n=\mathfrak m S +xS$ for some $x\in \mathfrak n \setminus \mathfrak n^2$. Let $J$ ...

### Equivalence of quadratic forms over $p$-adic integers vs over localisation at $p$

To discern whether two integral quadratic forms are equivalent over the $p$-adic integers, one can compute a Jordan decomposition at $p$ and read off some invariants. Restricting to $p\ne2$ for ...

### When is Hilbert-Samuel multiplicity of a local ring non-increasing along localization at prime ideals?

For Noetherian local ring $(R,\mathfrak m)$, let $e(R)$ denote the Hilbert-Samuel multiplicity of $R$ with respect to $\mathfrak m$ (https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hilbert%E2%80%93Samuel_function#...

### About the structure of unit groups appearing in number theory

I think the following statement is not true in the general situations, but consider it: $R$ is a ring, $\mathfrak{p}$ is a prime ideal, then the unit group of $\dfrac{R}{\mathfrak{p}^nR}$ is ...

### Structure of $\bigwedge^{2}_{\mathbb{Z}}(A)$ with $A$ a local integral domain

I am trying to see the structure of $\bigwedge^{2}_{\mathbb{Z}}(A)$ where $A$ is a local integral domain with small residue field. Let $A$ be a local integral domain with maximal ideal $M$, residue ...

### When is $u \circ v=v \circ u$ for $p$-adic power series $u$ and $v$ in two power series rings $A$ and $B$ respectively?

Let $K \supset \mathbb{Q}_p$ be the $p$-adic field with ring of integers $O_K$ and maximal ideal $m_K$. Let $\bar K$ be the algebraic closure and $\bar{m}_K$ be the integral closure of $m_K$ with ...
