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

@article{Coquand2003HiddenCI, title={Hidden constructions in abstract algebra. Krull Dimension of distributive lattices and commutative rings}, author={Thierry Coquand and Henri Lombardi}, journal={arXiv: Commutative Algebra}, year={2003} }

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

- Mathematics
- 2013

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

- Mathematics

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.

TOPOLOGICAL AND LOGICAL EXPLORATIONS OF KRULL DIMENSION

- 2016

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

- MathematicsPaul Lorenzen -- Mathematician and Logician

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…

Ordering groups constructively

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…
