Strongly Clean Matrices Over Power Series
MetadataShow full item record
An n x n matrix A over a commutative ring is strongly clean provided that it can be written as the sum of an idempotent matrix and an invertible matrix that commute. Let R be an arbitrary commutative ring, and let A(x) is an element of M-n (R[[x]]). We prove, in this note, that A(x) is an element of M-n (R[[x]]) is strongly clean if and only if A(0) is an element of M-n (R) is strongly clean. Strongly clean matrices over quotient rings of power series are also determined.
