\(\star\)-reductions of ideals and Prüfer \(v\)-multiplication domains. (English) Zbl 1454.13006

Summary: Let \(R\) be a commutative ring and \(I\) an ideal of \(R\). An ideal \(J\subseteq I\) is a reduction of \(I\) if \(JI^{n}=I^{n+1}\) for some positive integer \(n\). The ring \(R\) has the (finite) basic ideal property if (finitely generated) ideals of \(R\) do not have proper reductions. J. H. Hays [Trans. Am. Math. Soc. 177, 51–63 (1973; Zbl 0266.13001)] characterized (one-dimensional) Prüfer domains as domains with the finite basic ideal property (basic ideal property). We extend Hays’s results to Prüfer \(v\)-multiplication domains by replacing “basic” with “\(w\)-basic,” where \(w\) is a particular star operation. We also investigate relations among \(\star\)-basic properties for certain star operations \(\star\).
