On the base radical class for associative rings
Source: Acta Mathematica Hungarica, Volume 98, Number 4, 2003 , pp. 263-272(10)
The base radical class Lb(X), generated by a class X was introduced in . It consists of those rings whose nonzero homomorphic images have nonzero accessible subrings in X. When X is homomorphically closed, Lb(X) is the lower radical class defined by X, but otherwise X may not be contained in Lb(X). We prove that for a hereditary radical class L with semisimple class S(R), Lb(S(R)) is the class of strongly R-semisimple rings if and only if R is supernilpotent or subidempotent. A number of further examples of radical classes of the form Lb(X) are discussed.
