A note on minimal prime ideals. (English) Zbl 0841.13001

The aim of this very short note is to establish the following result: Let \(R\) be a commutative ring with identity, and \(I\neq R\) an ideal of \(R\). If every prime ideal minimal over \(I\) is finitely generated, then there are only finitely many prime ideals minimal over \(I\).
