The following concept of (not necessarily commutative) Noetherian unique factorization domain (UFD) was introduced recently by A. W. Chatters. Recall that an ideal P of a ring R is called completely prime if R/P is a domain. The element pR will be called a prime element if pR =Rp is a completely prime, height one prime of R. C(P) denotes the set of elements of R which are regular modulo P. Set C = ∩ C(P) where P ranges over the height one primes of R.
