Dedekind domains #
This file defines the notion of a Dedekind domain (or Dedekind ring), as a Noetherian integrally closed commutative ring of Krull dimension at most one.
Main definitions #
is_dedekind_domaindefines a Dedekind domain as a commutative ring that is Noetherian, integrally closed in its field of fractions and has Krull dimension at most one.
is_dedekind_domain_iffshows that this does not depend on the choice of field of fractions.
Implementation notes #
The definitions that involve a field of fractions choose a canonical field of fractions,
but are independent of that choice. The
..._iff lemmas express this independence.
Often, definitions assume that Dedekind domains are not fields. We found it more practical
to add a
(h : ¬ is_field A) assumption whenever this is explicitly needed.

A Dedekind domain is an integral domain that is Noetherian, integrally closed, and has Krull dimension at most one.
This is definition 3.2 of [Neu99].
An integral domain is a Dedekind domain iff and only if it is Noetherian, has dimension ≤ 1, and is integrally closed in a given fraction field. In particular, this definition does not depend on the choice of this fraction field.
