Mathieu-Zhao spaces of polynomial ringsJul 13 2019We describe all Mathieu-Zhao spaces of $k[x_1,\cdots,x_n]$ ($k$ is an algebraically closed field of characteristic zero) which contains an ideal of finite codimension. Furthermore we give an algorithm to decide if a subspace of the form $I+kv_1+\cdots+kv_r$ ... More

Cotilting with balanced big Cohen-Macaualay modulesJul 12 2019Over a Cohen-Macaulay local ring admitting a canonical module the definable closure of the class of balanced big Cohen-Macaulay modules is cotilting and is the smallest such class containing the maximal Cohen-Macaulay modules. We describe its cotilting ... More

Good rings and homogeneous polynomialsJul 12 2019In 2011, Khurana, Lam and Wang define the following property. (*)A commutative unital ring A satisfies the property "power stable range one" if for all a, b $\in$ A with aA + bA = A there is an integer N = N (a, b) $\ge$ 1, $\lambda$ = $\lambda$(a, b) ... More
