Denoetherianizing Cohen–Macaulay rings

László Fuchs and Bruce Olberding

Vol. 303 (2019), No. 1, 133–164

We introduce a new class of commutative nonnoetherian rings, called n-subperfect rings, generalizing the almost perfect rings that have been studied recently by Fuchs and Salce. For an integer n 0, the ring R is said to be n-subperfect if every maximal regular sequence in R has length n and the total ring of quotients of RI for any ideal I generated by a regular sequence is a perfect ring in the sense of Bass. We define an extended Cohen–Macaulay ring as a commutative ring R that has noetherian prime spectrum and each localization RM at a maximal ideal M is ht(M)-subperfect. In the noetherian case, these are precisely the classical Cohen–Macaulay rings. Several relevant properties are proved reminiscent of those shared by Cohen–Macaulay rings.
