Abstract

This paper deals with the well-known notion of PF-rings, that is, rings in which principal ideals are flat. We give a new characterization of PF-rings. Also we provide a necessary and sufficient condition for RIR\bowtie I (resp. R/IR/I when RR is a Dedekind domain or II is a primary ideal) to be a PF-ring. The article includes a brief discussion of the scope and precision of our results.
