On one-sided prime ideals

Friedhelm Hansen

Vol. 58 (1975), No. 1, 79–85

This paper contains some results on prime right ideals in weakly regular rings, especially V -rings, and in rings with restricted minimum condition. Theorem 1 gives information about the structure of V -rings: A V -ring with maximum condition for annihilating left ideals is a finite direct sum of simple V -rings. A characterization of rings with restricted minimum condition is given in Theorem 2: A nonprimitive right Noetherian ring satisfies the restricted minimum condition iff every critical prime right ideal (0) is maximal. The proof depends on the simple observation that in a nonprimitive ring with restricted minimum condition all prime right ideals (0) contain a (two-sided) prime ideal (0). An example shows that Theorem 2 is not valid for right Noetherian primitive rings. The same observation on nonprimitive rings leads to a sufficient condition for rings with restricted minimum condition to be right Noetherian.
