Regular sequences and minimal bases

Edward Dewey Davis

Vol. 36 (1971), No. 2, 323–326

This note records the results of an effort to understand in simple terms a certain theorem of Lichtenbaum and Schlessinger: Let I J be ideals of noetherian local ring. If I and I∕J are generated by regular sequences, then so is J. This theorem is closely related to the well known: If R and R∕P are regular local rings, then P is generated by part of a regular system of parameters. We investigate the implications of “I∕J is generated by a regular sequence” and discover an elementary theorem having both of these results as corollaries.
