Bezout rings of stable ranк 1.5 and the decomposition of a complete linear group into its multiple subgroups

Shchedrik V. P.


Abstract

A ring $R$ is called a ring of stable rank 1.5 if, for any triple $a, b, c \in R, c \not = 0$, such that $aR + bR + cR = R$, there exists $r \in R$ such that $(a + br)R + cR = R$. It is proved that a commutative Bezout domain has a stable rank 1.5 if and only if every invertible matrix $A$ can be represented in the form $A = HLU$, where $L, U$ are elements of the groups of lower and upper unitriangular matrices (triangular matrices with 1 on the diagonal) and the matrix $H$ belongs to the group $$\bf{G} \Phi = \{ H \in \mathrm{G}\mathrm{L}n(R) | \exists H_1 \in \mathrm{G}\mathrm{L}_n(R) : H\Phi = \Phi H_1\},$$ where $\Phi = \mathrm{d}\mathrm{i}\mathrm{a}\mathrm{g} (\varphi 1, \varphi 2,..., \varphi n), \varphi 1| \varphi 2| ... | \varphi n, \varphi n \not = 0$.
