On Matrix Rings over Unit-Regular Rings

Tsan-Ming Lok and K. P. Shum

Abstract: In this paper, we prove that a unit-regular ring $R$ is isomorphic to a Busque ring $S$ if its matrix rings $M_n (R)$ and $M_n (S)$ are isomorphic. This gives a partial answer to a matrix isomorphism question for unit-regular rings proposed in the text of K. Goodearl.

Keywords: unit-regular rings; directly finite $\aleph_0$-continuous regular rings; Replacement Lemma

Classification (MSC2000): 16A30
