# Definition:Dedekind Domain

## Definition

### Definition 1

A Dedekind domain is an integral domain in which every nonzero proper ideal has a prime ideal factorization that is unique up to permutation of the factors.

### Definition 2

A Dedekind domain is an integral domain of which every nonzero fractional ideal is invertible.

### Definition 3

A Dedekind domain is a noetherian domain of dimension $1$ that is integrally closed.

### Definition 4

A Dedekind domain is a noetherian domain of dimension $1$ in which every primary ideal is the power of a prime ideal.

### Definition 5
