Dedekind domains: Overrings and semi-prime elements

Luther Elic Claborn

Vol. 15 (1965), No. 3, 799–804

This paper develops two themes: (1) the relation of the class group of a Dedekind domain A to that of an overring B and (2) the question of finding a nonzero, nonunit element x of a Dedekind domain A such that A∕xA is regular. We obtain complete results in answer to the first question, giving a corollary concerning the realization of certain groups as class groups. We give various sufficient conditions in answer to the second question; some in terms of the class group, others concerning Dedekind domains which often arise in practice.
