WHEN IS AN ABELIAN WEAKLY CLEAN RING CLEAN?

Peter Danchev

Abstract


We answer the title question in the armative by showing that any
abelian weakly clean ring for which 2 belongs to its Jacobson radical (in particular, if 2 is nilpotent) has to be clean. Some constructive examples, one of which illustrates that this is no longer true removing the condition on the 2, are given as well.
