On Finite Rank Operators on Centrally Closed Semiprime Rings


We prove that the multiplication ring of a centrally closed semiprime ring R has a finite rank operator over the extended centroid C iff R contains an idempotent q such that qRq is finitely generated over C and, for each , there exist and e an idempotent of C such that xz=eq.
