This category contains definitions related to Local Ring Homomorphisms.
Related results can be found in Category:Local Ring Homomorphisms.

Let $\struct {A, \mathfrak m}$ and $\struct {B, \mathfrak n}$ be commutative local rings.

Let $f : A \to B$ be a unital ring homomorphism.

### Definition 1

The homomorphism $f$ is local if and only if the image $f(\mathfrak m) \subseteq \mathfrak n$.

### Definition 2

The homomorphism $f$ is local if and only if the preimage $f^{-1}(\mathfrak n) \supseteq \mathfrak m$.

### Definition 3

The homomorphism $f$ is local if and only if the preimage $\map {f^{-1} } {\mathfrak n} = \mathfrak m$.
