In 1956, Jacobson asked whether the intersection of the powers of the Jacobson radical, J(R), of a right Noetherian ring R, must always be zero [4, p. 200]. His question was answered in the negative by I. N. Herstein [3], who noted that , where Z(2) denotes the ring of rational numbers with denominator prime to 2, affords a counterexample. In contrast, the ring , though similar in appearance to R1, satisfies . (Here, k denotes a field.)
