Prüfer hulls of commutative rings.

Submission: 2004, February 13.

*Abstract:
Let $A$ be a commutative ring with $1$ and $P(A)$ denote
the Prüfer hull of $A$. If $P(A)$ is a von Neumann regular ring then $P(A)=A_S$
with $S:=A\cap P(A)^*$ the intersection of $A$ and the group $P(A)^*$ of all
units of $P(A)$. As an application, we show that (1) $A$ is
a semihereditary ring if and only if $P(A)$ is a von Neumann regular ring;
(2) $A$ is a FPF ring if and only if $P(A)$ is a self-injective ring.*
