**3.1 Ring Homomorphisms and Ideals
**

In this section we develop some more of the abstract theory of rings. In particular we will describe those functions between rings that preserve the ring structure, and we will look at another way of forming new rings from existing ones. Deﬁnition 3.1.1 Let R be a ring. A non-empty subset S of R is a subring of R if it is itself a ring under the addition and multiplication of R. This means that S is closed under the addition and multiplication of R, that it contains the zero element of R, and that it contains the negative of each of its elements. EXAMPLES 1. Z is a subring of Q. Q is a subring of R. R is a subring of C. 2. The ring Mn (F) of n × n matrices over a ﬁeld F has the following subrings : • Dn (F) - the ring of diagonal n × n matrices over F. • Un (F) - the ring of upper triangular n × n matrices over F. 3. For any ﬁeld F, F is a subring of the polynomial ring Mn (F). So also is F[x2 ], the subset of F[x] consisting of those polynomials in which the coefﬁcient of xi is zero whenever i is odd. 4. Every (non-zero) ring R has at least two subrings - the full ring R and the zero subring {0R } 24

If a ∈ F we can deﬁne a homomorphism φa : F[x] −→ F given by φa (f(x)) = f(a) for f(x) ∈ F[x]. QUESTION FOR THE SEMINAR: Determine whether each of the following is a ring homomorphism : 1. 3. 2. Let F be a ﬁeld. A function φ : R −→ S is a ring homomorphism if for all x.QUESTIONS FOR THE SEMINAR : 1. Choose a positive integer n and deﬁne φn : Z −→ Z/nZ to be the function that sends k ∈ Z to the congruence class modulo n to which k belongs. 2. Suppose that S is a subring of a ring R. 25 .2 Let R and S be rings. Is it possible that S could have an identity element for multiplication that is different from the identity element of R? Could this happen if R is an integral domain? Deﬁnition 3. The function det : M2 (Q) −→ Q that associates to every matrix its determinant. Then φn is a ring homomorphism. The function g : Z −→ Z deﬁned by g(n) = 2n. Give two more examples of subrings of Mn (Q).1. The function φ : Q[x] −→ Q deﬁned for f(x) ∈ Q[x] by φ(f(x)) = the sum of the coefﬁcients of f(x). for n ∈ Z. EXAMPLES 1. 2. y ∈ R we have φ(x + y) = φ(x) + φ(y) and φ(xy) = φ(x)φ(y).

Then φ(−r) + φ(r) = φ(0R ) = 0S . The image of φ is the subset of S deﬁned by Imφ = {s ∈ S : s = φ(r) for some r ∈ R}. The kernel of φ is the subset of R deﬁned by ker φ = {r ∈ R : φ(r) = 0S }. Let s ∈ Imφ and let r be an element of R for which φ(r) = s. Next we show that 0S ∈ Imφ. i. Finally we show that Imφ contains the additive inverse in S of each of its elements.in fact we have proved something more than this. Thus 0S ∈ Imφ . s2 are elements of Imφ and let r1 . So suppose that s1 . Then φ(r1 + r2 ) = φ(r1 ) + φ(r2 ) = s1 + s2 and so s1 + s2 ∈ Imφ. Thus φ(−r) is the additive inverse of s in S. namely that 0S is the image of 0R . Also φ(r1 r2 ) = φ(r1 )φ(r2 ) = s1 s2 and so s1 s2 ∈ Imφ.1.3 Suppose that φ : R −→ S is a homomorphism of rings. Lemma 3. To see this observe that φ(0R ) + φ(0r ) = φ(0R + 0R ) = φ(0R ).Deﬁnition 3. Subtracting the element φ(0R ) of S from both sides gives φ(0R ) = 0S .4 Imφ is a subring of S. r2 be elements of R for which s1 = φ(r1 ) and s2 = φ(r2 ). −s = φ(−r) and Imφ contains the negative of each of its elements. 26 . Proof: First we need to show that Imφ is closed under the addition and multiplication of S.1.e.

it has an extra property. Z[x]. NOTES 1. Thus ker φ is closed under addition and multiplication in R. and φ(r1 r2 ) = φ(r1 )φ(r2 ) = 0S 0S = 0S . 27 . Q[x]. In fact ker φ is not just a subring of R . QUESTION FOR THE SEMINAR : Find some examples of left. Suppose r ∈ ker φ and let x be any element of R. A two-sided ideal of R is a subring I of R with the additional property that both xa and ax are in I whenever a ∈ I and x ∈ R. right. 2. M2 (Q).6 Let R be a ring.4 above. Deﬁnition 3. since φ(xr) = φ(x)φ(r) = φ(x)0S = 0S .1.1. Finally if r ∈ ker φ then 0S = φ(−r + r) = φ(−r) + φ(r) = φ(−r) + 0S and so φ(−r) = 0 and −r ∈ ker φ. Q. A left ideal of R is a subring IL of R with the additional property that xa ∈ IL whenever a ∈ IL and x ∈ R. Then xr and rx belong to ker φ. Thus ker φ is a subring of R. φ(rx) = φ(r)φ(x) = 0S φ(x) = 0S . just ideals. We do not talk about two-sided ideals in this case. r2 ∈ ker φ. it is also closed under the operation of multiplying an element of ker φ by any element of R. If R is commutative then every left or right ideal of R is a two-sided ideal.5 ker φ is a subring of R. So not only is ker φ closed under its own multiplication. or two-sided ideals in each of the following rings : Z. To see that 0R ∈ ker φ we note that φ(0R ) = 0S by the proof of Lemma 3. Proof: Let r1 . Then φ(r1 ) = φ(r2 ) = 0S . A right ideal of R is a subring IR of R with the additional property that ax ∈ IR whenever a ∈ IR and x ∈ R. We have φ(r1 + r2 ) = φ(r1 ) + φ(r2 ) = 0S + 0S = 0S .1. (Two-sided) ideals play a role in ring theory similar to that played by normal subgroups in group theory.Lemma 3.

−2. Fix a polynomial f(x) ∈ Q[x]. Then u ∈ I implies u−1 u = 1R belongs to I. . } 3Z = {. Corollary 3. so R ⊆ I and R = I. Note that n is the kernel of the homomorphism φn : Z −→ Z/nZ that sends k ∈ Z to the class of k modulo n. We deﬁne Ra = {ra : r ∈ R}. We have already seen that the kernel of any ring homomorphism with domain R is a (two-sided) ideal of R. . Let R be a ring. In general if n ∈ Z we will denote by nZ or n the subring of Z consisting of all the integer multiples of n. Then r1R = r belongs to I. then the only ideals in F are the zero ideal (consisting only of the zero element) and F itself. Then Ra is a left ideal of R called the principal left ideal generated by a. 28 .EXAMPLES 1. 3.1. namely the full ring R and the zero ideal {0R }. Let R be any ring and let a ∈ R. −3. Similarly aR = {ar : r ∈ R} is the principal right ideal generated by a. . 3. In each case n is an ideal of Z. It is denoted by a . 4. If R is commutative then aR = Ra for all a ∈ R. The subrings 2Z = {. We denote by f(x) the subring of Q[x] consisting of all those polynomials of the form g(x)f(x) for an element g(x) of Q[x]. called the principal ideal generated by f(x). Now let r ∈ R. . . since a multiple of n can be multiplied by any integer and the result is always a multiple of n. and this ideal is called the principal ideal generated by a. Proof: Let u−1 denote the inverse of u in R. 0. . } are ideals of Z. In general an ideal in a commutative ring is called principal if it is the principal ideal generated by some element. 2. . 5. . . Every non-zero ring R has at least two ideals. . If I contains a unit u of R. then I = R. In Z. 2. Lemma 3. 4. Then f(x) is an ideal of Q[x]. nZ is the principal ideal generated by n.1. 6.7 Let R be a ring.8 If F is a ﬁeld. and let I be an ideal of R. 0. . .
