Properties of Armendariz rings and weak Armendariz rings. (English) Zbl 1234.16016

Summary: We consider some properties of Armendariz and rigid rings. We prove that the direct product of rigid (weak rigid), weak Armendariz rings is a rigid (weak rigid), weak Armendariz ring. On the assumption that the factor ring \(R/I\) is weak Armendariz, where \(I\) is nilpotent ideal, we prove that \(R\) is a weak Armendariz ring. We also prove that every ring isomorphism preserves weak skew Armendariz structure. Armendariz rings of Laurent power series are also considered.
