In the introduction to Chapter 1 of his book "Introduction to Plane Algebraic Curves", Ernst Kunz states that the polynomial ring ##K[ X_1, X_2, \ ... \ ... \ , X_n]## over a field ##K## is a unique factorization domain ... ... but he does not prove this fact ...(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Can someone demonstrate a proof of this proposition ... or point me to a text or online notes that contain a proof ...

Help will be appreciated ... ...
