Hidden constructions in abstract algebra. Krull Dimension of distributive lattices and commutative rings

  title={Hidden constructions in abstract algebra. Krull Dimension of distributive lattices and commutative rings},
  author={Thierry Coquand and Henri Lombardi},
  journal={arXiv: Commutative Algebra},
We present constructive versions of Krull's dimension theory for commutative rings and distributive lattices. The foundations of these constructive versions are due to Joyal, Espanol and the authors. We show that the notion of Krull dimension has an explicit computational content in the form of existence (or lack of existence) of some algebraic identities. We can then get an explicit computational content where abstract results about dimensions are used to show the existence of concrete… 
A constructive notion of codimension
Abstract We give a point-free and constructively meaningful characterization of the notion of codimension for ideals of a commutative ring, which with classical logic and the axiom of choice is
Krull dimension and monomial orders
Abstract We introduce the notion of independent sequences with respect to a monomial order by using the least terms of polynomials vanishing at the sequence. Our main result shows that the Krull
Spectral schemes as ringed lattices
A point-free definition of a Grothendieck scheme whose underlying topological space is spectral, and with the appropriate notion of a morphism between spectral schemes, elementary proofs of the universal properties become possible.
Krull dimension measures the depth of the spectrum Spec(R) of a commutative ring R. Since Spec(R) is a spectral space, Krull dimension can be defined for spectral spaces. Utilizing Stone duality, it
A universal Krull–Lindenbaum theorem
Abstract We formulate a natural common generalisation of Krull's theorem on prime ideals and of Lindenbaum's lemma on complete consistent theories; this has instantiations in diverse branches of
A formal proof of the projective Eisenbud–Evans–Storch theorem
We extend a constructive proof of the Eisenbud–Evans–Storch theorem, developed in a previous work by Coquand, Schuster, and Lombardi, from the affine to the projective case. The main tool is that of
Syntax for Semantics: Krull’s Maximal Ideal Theorem
Krull’s Maximal Ideal Theorem (MIT) is one of the most prominent incarnations of the Axiom of Choice (AC) in ring theory. For many a consequence of AC, constructive counterparts are well within

Abstract The existence of a linear order on a group that is compatible with the group structure generally requires transfinite methods. However, this can be circumvented by concentrating on the
Dynamical Gröbner bases over Dedekind rings
Abstract In this paper, we extend the notion of “dynamical Grobner bases” introduced by the second author to Dedekind rings (with zero divisors). As an application, we dynamically solve the ideal
Hidden constructions in abstract algebra (6) The theorem of Maroscia, Brewer and Costa
We give a constructive deciphering for a generalization of the Quillen-Suslin theorem due to Maroscia and Brewer & Costa stating that finitely generated projective modules over R[X1, . . . , Xn],


Dynamical method in algebra: effective Nullstellensätze
This work gives a general method for producing various effective Null and Positivstellensatze and constructive versions of abstract classical results of algebra based on Zorn's lemma in algebraically closed valued fields and ordered groups.
Prime ideal structure in commutative rings
0. Introduction. Let ' be the category of commutative rings with unit, and regard Spec (as in [1]) as a contravariant functor from ' to g$7 the category of topological spaces and continuous maps. The
Valuations and Dedekind's Prague Theorem
Abstract To any field K we associate an entailment relation in the sense of Scott (Proceedings of the Tarski Symposium, 1974, pp. 411–435). In this way we can interpret an abstract propositional
Constructions cachées en algèbre abstraite (2) le principe local-global
Wa apply a constructive form of local-global principles in commutative algebra in order to decipher some constructions of invertible polynomial matrices hidden in theorems of abstract algebra. This
Hidden constructions in abstract algebra (1): integral dependance
We give an elementary method, hidden in a theorem of abstract algebra, for constructing integral dependance relations. We apply this method in order to give a constructive proof of a theorem of

Partially Ordered Sets
In the beginning of this article we define the choice function of a non-empty set family that does not contain ∅ as introduced in [5, pages 88–89]. We define order of a set as a relation being
