Prime spectrum of a commutative ring #

The prime spectrum of a commutative ring is the type of all prime ideals. It is naturally endowed with a topology: the Zariski topology.

(It is also naturally endowed with a sheaf of rings, which is constructed in algebraic_geometry.structure_sheaf.)

Main definitions #

Conventions #

We denote subsets of rings with s, s', etc... whereas we denote subsets of prime spectra with t, t', etc...

structure prime_spectrum (R : Type u) [comm_ring R] :

The prime spectrum of a commutative ring R is the type of all prime ideals of R.

It is naturally endowed with a topology (the Zariski topology), and a sheaf of commutative rings (see algebraic_geometry.structure_sheaf). It is a fundamental building block in algebraic geometry.

The prime spectrum of the zero ring is empty.

@[simp]

The map from the direct sum of prime spectra to the prime spectrum of a direct product.

Equations

The prime spectrum of R × S is in bijection with the disjoint unions of the prime spectrum of R and the prime spectrum of S.

Equations

The zero locus of a set s of elements of a commutative ring R is the set of all prime ideals of the ring that contain the set s.

An element f of R can be thought of as a dependent function on the prime spectrum of R. At a point x (a prime ideal) the function (i.e., element) f takes values in the quotient ring R modulo the prime ideal x. In this manner, zero_locus s is exactly the subset of prime_spectrum R where all "functions" in s vanish simultaneously.

Equations

The vanishing ideal of a set t of points of the prime spectrum of a commutative ring R is the intersection of all the prime ideals in the set t.

An element f of R can be thought of as a dependent function on the prime spectrum of R. At a point x (a prime ideal) the function (i.e., element) f takes values in the quotient ring R modulo the prime ideal x. In this manner, vanishing_ideal t is exactly the ideal of R consisting of all "functions" that vanish on all of t.

The Zariski topology on the prime spectrum of a commutative ring is defined via the closed sets of the topology: they are exactly those sets that are the zero locus of a subset of the ring.
