The Rings with Identity Whose Additive Subgroups Are One-Sided Ideals
Dobbs, David E.
International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, v48 n5 p774-781 2017
Let R be a ring with identity. Then {0} and R are the only additive subgroups of R if and only if R is isomorphic (as a ring with identity) to (exactly) one of {0}, Z/pZ for a prime number p. Also, each additive subgroup of R is a one-sided ideal of R if and only if R is isomorphic to (exactly) one of {0}, Z, Z/nZ for an integer n = 2. This note could find classroom use in a first course on abstract algebra as enrichment material for the unit on ring theory.
