Commutativity in locally compact rings

James B. Lucke

Vol. 32 (1970), No. 1, 187–196
Abstract

A structure theorem is given for all locally compact rings such that x belongs to the closure of {xn : n 2}, in particular, all such rings are commutative, a result which extends a wellknown theorem of Jacobson. Similarly we show the commutativity of semisimple locally compact rings satisfying topological analogues of properties sludied by Herstein.
