Finitely generated F-algebras with applications to Stein manifolds

E. R. Heal and Michael Windham

Vol. 51 (1974), No. 2, 459–465

Let A be a commutative n-generated F-algebra with identity, MA the spectrum of A. Conditions are given which insure that MA can be mapped homeomorphically into Cn and that A is topologically isomorphic to the algebra of all holomorphic functions on a polynomially convex open subset of Cn. A characterization is given of those Stein manifolds X for which p(X) is finitely generated.
