Xn ; y1 , . . , ym ) is a polynomial of the n +m arguments which remains unchanged under each permutation of the x among themselves and under each permutation of the y among themselves, then S can be represented as a polynomial G of the σ1 , . . , σn and ρ1 , . . , ρm : S(x1 , . . , xn ; y1 , . . , ym ) = G(σ1 , . . , σn , ρ1 , . . , ρm ). The coefﬁcients of G can be calculated from those of S entirely by the operations of addition, subtraction, and multiplication. 44. Two nonzero polynomials f1 (x) and f2 (x) over κ have a uniquely determined greatest common divisor d(x), that is, there is a polynomial d(x) with leading coefﬁcient 1, such that d(x)|f1 (x), d(x)|f2 (x), and every polynomial which divides f1 (x) and f2 (x), also divides d(x).

If an ideal contains the element 1, then it contains all algebraic integers, and is thus = (1). For each ideal a = (0), a = a(1), a|a, (1)|a, a|(0). Each ideal a has the trivial factors a and (1). 2 Valuation rings An integral domain A with its ﬁeld of fractions κ is called a valuation ring of κ if it has the property that for any x ∈ κ we have x ∈ A or x−1 ∈ A (or both). Obviously, if A is a valuation ring of κ such that there exists a ring B with A ⊆ B ⊆ κ, then B is a valuation ring of κ. 29.

The statement β|α has meaning, it actually agrees with (β)|(α). The unit ideal (1) consists of integral elements of the ﬁeld of fractions. If an ideal contains the element 1, then it contains all algebraic integers, and is thus = (1). For each ideal a = (0), a = a(1), a|a, (1)|a, a|(0). Each ideal a has the trivial factors a and (1). 2 Valuation rings An integral domain A with its ﬁeld of fractions κ is called a valuation ring of κ if it has the property that for any x ∈ κ we have x ∈ A or x−1 ∈ A (or both).
