Zero-divisor ideals and realizable zero-divisor graphs

Michael Axtell, Joe Stickles and Wallace Trampbachls

Vol. 2 (2009), No. 1, 17–27

We seek to classify the sets of zero-divisors that form ideals based on their zero-divisor graphs. We offer full classification of these ideals within finite commutative rings with identity. We also provide various results concerning the realizability of a graph as a zero-divisor graph.
