McCoy rings relative to a monoid. (English) Zbl 1207.16041
Let $$R$$ be a ring with 1 and $$M$$ a monoid. Then $$R$$ is called a right $$M$$-McCoy ring if whenever $$\alpha=a_1g_1+\cdots+a_ng_n\neq 0$$ and $$\beta=b_1h_1+\cdots+b_mh_m\neq 0\in R[M]$$ where $$g_i,h_j\in M$$ and $$a_i,b_j\in R$$ such that $$\alpha\beta=0$$, then $$\alpha r=0$$ for some nonzero $$r\in R$$. In particular, $$R$$ is called right linearly $$M$$-McCoy when $$n=m=2$$. A left $$M$$-McCoy ring is similarly defined, and an $$M$$-McCoy ring is both left and right $$M$$-McCoy.
A monoid $$M$$ is called a u.p.-monoid if for any finite subsets $$A,B\subset M$$, there exists an element $$g\in M$$ such that $$g=ab$$ for some unique elements $$a\in A$$ and $$b\in B$$.
Then an $$M$$-McCoy ring is a generalization of a McCoy ring and the author gives $$M$$-McCoy rings $$R$$ for different classes of rings $$R$$ and monoids $$M$$: (1) Let $$R$$ be a reversible ring (i.e., $$ab=0$$ implies $$ba=0$$ for all $$a,b\in R$$), and $$M$$ a u.p.-monoid. Then $$R$$ is $$M$$-McCoy; (2) Let $$R$$ be a right duo ring (i.e., all right and left ideals of $$R$$ are ideals of $$R$$), and $$M$$ a strictly totally ordered monoid. Then $$R$$ is right $$M$$-McCoy; (3) Let $$R$$ be a semicommutative ring (i.e., $$ab=0$$ implies $$aRb=0$$ for all $$a,b\in R$$), and $$M$$ a u.p.-monoid. Then $$R$$ is right linearly $$M$$-McCoy.
Moreover, properties of $$R[M]$$ are also shown for a semicommutative ring $$R$$, a 2-primal ring $$R$$, and a u.p.-monoid $$M$$.
