Main Question or Discussion Point

Hi
as the title says i´m looking for an example of a ring witch has only one sided inverses e.g left or right sided ones -> a*b=1 does not imply b*a =1!

thanks for your advice :)

What about this http://planetmath.org/encyclopedia/KleinFourRing.html" [Broken]

cool thanks :)
Do you know if there is also one with 0 and 1 ?

Sorry, my mistake. What I've posted is an example of ring with only one-sided unity :-(
I've tried UTFG, here's an example from the book Tsit-Yuen Lam: A First Course in Noncommutative Rings

Many rings satisfying some form of "finiteness conditions" can be shown to be Dedekind-finite, but there do exist non-Dedekind-finite rings. For instance, let V be the k-vector space [tex]ke_1\oplus ke_2\oplus\ldots[/tex] with a countably infinite basis [tex]\{e_i; i\ge1\}[/tex] over the field k, and let [tex]R=\textrm{End}_k V[/tex] be the k-algebra of all vector space endomorphisms of V. If [tex]a,b\in R[/tex] are defined on the basis by
[tex]$b(e_i)=e_{i+1}$[/tex] for all [tex]i\ge1[/tex] and
[tex]$a(e_1)=0, a(e_i)=e_{i-1}$[/tex] for all [tex]i\ge2[/tex],
the clearly [tex]ab=1\ne ba[/tex] so [tex]a[/tex] is right-invertible without being eft-invertible, and R gives an example of a non-Dedekind-finite ring.
