you'll find complete and easy to understand solution to your problem in here.
(1) An integral domain is a principal ideal domain if every ideal of is principal, that is of the form ; show directly that the ideals in a PID satisfy the a.c.c. (ascending chain condition).
(2) Show that an integral domain is a UFD if and only if every ascending chain of principal ideals terminates, and every irreducible element of is prime
No idea! Any help would be appreciated, thanks!
