Medial subcartesian products of fields. (English) Zbl 0702.13004

Let A (respectively B) be the direct product (respectively sum) of fields \(\{F_ i\}_{i\in J}\) with \(B\subset A\), so B is an ideal of the ring A. The authors claim to give a description of subrings R of A which contain B. One such ring is \(M=Z.1_ A+B\) with \(R\supset M\) for all R, and \(M=A\) if, and only if, J is finite (although the proof presented contains an error).
