Abstract

In this note we shall prove for two types of regular rings A that every element of GLr(A[X1, …, Xn]) is a product of an element of Er(A[X1, …, Xn])(the group of elementary matrices) and an element of GLr(A), for r ≥ 3 and n arbitrary. This is a kind of GLr-analogue of results of Lindel and Mohan-Kumar and is an extension of a result of Suslin.
