Definition: Generalization of Divisor

Let $(R,\cdot,+)$ be an integral domain with the multiplicative neutral element $1,$ and let $a,b\in R.$

We call $a$ a divisor of $b$ (denoted by $a\mid b$), if and only if there exists an element $c\in R$ such that $ac=b.$


  • This definition corresponds to the special case of a divisor, if $R=\mathbb Z.$
