Pruefer domains, the strong 2generator property, and integervalued polynomials
 Date Issued:
 2004
 Summary:
 We present several results involving three concepts: Prufer domains, the strong 2generator property, and integervalued polynomials. An integral domain D is called a Prufer domain if every nonzero finitely generated ideal of D is invertible. When each 2generated ideal of D has the property that one of its generators can be any arbitrary selected nonzero element of the ideal, we say D has the strong 2generator property . We note that, if D has the strong 2generator property, then D is a Prufer domain. If Q is the field of fractions of D, and E is a finite nonempty subset of D; we define Int(E, D ) = {f(X) ∈ Q[ X] ∣ f(a) ∈ D for every a ∈ E} to be the ring of integervalued polynomials on D with respect to the subset E. We show that D is a Prufer domain if and only if Int(E, D) is a Prufer domain. Our main theorem is that Int(E, D) has the strong 2generator property if and only if D is a Bezout domain (that is, every finitely generated ideal of D is principal).
