Abstract: In this paper we consider single elements in rings and nearrings. If $R$ is a (near)ring, $x \in R$ is called single if $axb = 0 \Rightarrow ax = 0$ or $xb = 0$. In seeking rings in which each element is single, we are led to consider $0$-simple rings, a class which lies between division rings and simple rings.

Classification (MSC2000): 16U99; 16Y30
