# Category:Zero Divisors

This category contains results about Zero Divisors.

Let $\struct {R, +, \circ}$ be a ring.

A zero divisor (in $R$) is an element $x \in R$ such that either:

$\exists y \in R^*: x \circ y = 0_R$

or:

$\exists y \in R^*: y \circ x = 0_R$

where $R^*$ is defined as $R \setminus \set {0_R}$.

That is, such that $x$ is either a left zero divisor or a right zero divisor.

The expression:

$x$ is a zero divisor

can be written:

$x \divides 0_R$
