# Goldie ring

Let $R$ be a ring. If the set of annihilators
$\{\rann(x)\mid x\in R\}$
satisifies the ascending chain condition, then
$R$ is said to satisfy the *ascending chain condition on right annihilators*.

A ring $R$ is called a *right Goldie ring* if it satisfies the ascending chain condition on right annihilators and $R_{R}$ is a module of finite rank.

*Left Goldie ring* is defined similarly. If the context makes it clear on which side the ring operates, then such a ring is simply called a *Goldie ring*.

Defines:

left Goldie, right Goldie, left Goldie ring, right Goldie ring
