Abstract

Let $k$ be a field and $X$ an indeterminate over $k$. In this note we prove that the domain $k[[X^{p}, X^{q}]]$ (resp. $k[X^{p}, X^{q}]$) where $p, q$ are relatively prime positive integers is always divisorial but $k[[X^{p}, X^{q}, X^{r}]]$ (resp. $k[X^{p}, X^{q}, X^{r}]$) where $p, q, r$ are positive integers is not. We also prove that $k[[X^{q}, X^{q+1}, X^{q+2}]]$ (resp. $k[X^{q}, X^{q+1}, X^{q+2}]$) is divisorial if and only if $q$ is even. These are very special cases of well-known results on semigroup rings, but our proofs are mainly concerned with the computation of the dual (equivalently the inverse) of the maximal ideal of the ring.
