GROUP ACTIONS IN A REGULAR RING

  • Published : 2005.11.01

Abstract

Let R be a ring with identity, X the set of all nonzero, nonunits of Rand G the group of all units of R. We will consider two group actions on X by G, the regular action and the conjugate action. In this paper, by investigating two group actions we can have some results as follows: First, if G is a finitely generated abelian group, then the orbit O(x) under the regular action on X by G is finite for all nilpotents x $\in$ X. Secondly, if F is a field in which 2 is a unit and F $\backslash\;\{0\}$ is a finitley generated abelian group, then F is finite. Finally, if G in a unit-regular ring R is a torsion group and 2 is a unit in R, then the conjugate action on X by G is trivial if and only if G is abelian if and only if R is commutative.
