I am reading Dummit and Foote Chapter 15, Section 15.1: Noetherian Rings and Affine Algebraic Sets.
Exercise 10 reads as follows:
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Prove that the subring: of the polynomial ring k[x,y] is not a Noetherian ring and hence not a finitely generated k-algebra.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Can someone please help me get a start on this exercise.
