Characterizations of graded Prufer $\star$-multiplication domains

Main Article Content

Parviz sahandi


Let $R=\bigoplus_{\alpha\in\Gamma}R_{\alpha}$ be a graded integral domain graded by an arbitrary grading torsionless monoid $\Gamma$, and $\star$ be a semistar operation on $R$. In this paper we define and study the graded integral domain analogue of $\star$-Nagata and Kronecker function rings of $R$ with respect to $\star$. We say that $R$ is a graded Prufer $\star$-multiplication domain if each nonzero finitely generated homogeneous ideal of $R$ is $\star_f$-invertible. Using $\star$-Nagata and Kronecker function rings, we give several different equivalent conditions for $R$ to be a graded Prufer $\star$-multiplication domain. In particular we give new characterizations for a graded integral domain, to be a P$v$MD.
