Abstract

We combine Euclidean and adequate rings, and introduce a new type of ring. A ring $R$ is called an E-adequate ring provided that for any $a,b\in R$ such that $aR+bR=R$ and $c\neq 0$ there exists $y\in R$ such that $(a+by,c)$ is an E-adequate pair. We shall prove that an E-adequate ring is an elementary divisor ring if and only if it is a Hermite ring. Elementary matrix reduction over such rings is also studied. We thereby generalize Domsha, Vasiunyk, and Zabavsky's theorems to a much wider class of rings.
