Dedekind domains #

THIS FILE IS SYNCHRONIZED WITH MATHLIB4. Any changes to this file require a corresponding PR to mathlib4.

This file defines an equivalent notion of a Dedekind domain (or Dedekind ring), namely a Noetherian integral domain where the localization at all nonzero prime ideals is a DVR (TODO: and shows that implies the main definition).

Main results #

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.

dedekind domain, dedekind ring

structure is_dedekind_domain_dvr (A : Type u_2) [comm_ring A] [is_domain A] :

A Dedekind domain is an integral domain that is Noetherian, and the localization at every nonzero prime is a discrete valuation ring.

This is equivalent to is_dedekind_domain. TODO: prove the equivalence.

Localizing a domain of Krull dimension ≤ 1 gives another ring of Krull dimension ≤ 1.

Note that the same proof can/should be generalized to preserving any Krull dimension, once we have a suitable definition.

The localization of a Dedekind domain is a Dedekind domain.

The localization of a Dedekind domain at every nonzero prime ideal is a Dedekind domain.

In a Dedekind domain, the localization at every nonzero prime ideal is a DVR.

Dedekind domains, in the sense of Noetherian integrally closed domains of Krull dimension ≤ 1, are also Dedekind domains in the sense of Noetherian domains where the localization at every nonzero prime ideal is a DVR.
