Weierstrass ring

Jump to: navigation, search

A local Hensel pseudo-geometric ring (cf. Geometric ring; Hensel ring) each quotient ring of which by a prime ideal is a finite extension of a regular local ring (cf. also Regular ring (in commutative algebra)). A Weierstrass ring is analytically irreducible. Any finite extension of a Weierstrass ring is a Weierstrass ring. Examples of Weierstrass rings are analytic rings (rings of convergent power series) over a perfect field, to which the Weierstrass preparation theorem is applicable.
