Let R be a commutative Noetherian ring, M a finitely generated R-module, I an ideal of R and N a submodule of M such that IM ⫅ N. In this paper, the primary decomposition and irreducible decomposition of ideal I × N in the idealization of module R ⋉ M are given. From theses we get the formula for associated primes of R ⋉ M and the index of irreducibility of 0R ⋉ M.
Hirano [On annihilator ideals of a polynomial ring over a noncommutative ring, J. Pure Appl. Algebra, 168 (2002), 45–52] studied relations between the set of annihilators in a ring R and the set of annihilators in a polynomial extension R[x] and introduced quasi-Armendariz rings. In this paper, we give a sufficient condition for a ring R and a monoid M such that the monoid ring R[M] is quasi-Armendariz. As a consequence we show that if R is a right APP-ring, then R[x]=(xn) and hence the trivial extension T(R,R) are quasi-Armendariz. They allow the construction of rings with a non-zero nilpotent ideal of arbitrary index of nilpotency which are quasi-Armendariz.
