Principal Ideal Domain - Examples


Examples include:

  • K: any field,
  • Z: the ring of integers,
  • K: rings of polynomials in one variable with coefficients in a field. (The converse is also true; that is, if A is a PID, then A is a field.) Furthermore, a ring of formal power series in one variable over a field is a PID since every ideal is of the form .
  • Z: the ring of Gaussian integers
  • Z (where ω is a primitive cube root of 1): the Eisenstein integers

Examples of integral domains that are not PIDs:

  • Z: the ring of all polynomials with integer coefficients --- it is not principal because the ideal generated by 2 and X is an example of an ideal that cannot be generated by a single polynomial.
  • K: The ideal (x,y) is not principal.

Famous quotes containing the word examples:

    Histories are more full of examples of the fidelity of dogs than of friends.
    Alexander Pope (1688–1744)

    No rules exist, and examples are simply life-savers answering the appeals of rules making vain attempts to exist.
    André Breton (1896–1966)

    In the examples that I here bring in of what I have [read], heard, done or said, I have refrained from daring to alter even the smallest and most indifferent circumstances. My conscience falsifies not an iota; for my knowledge I cannot answer.
    Michel de Montaigne (1533–1592)
