## Tag 03B7

Example 10.155.9. Lemma 10.155.8 does not work if the ring is not Noetherian. For example consider the action of $G = \{+1, -1\}$ on $A = \mathbf{C}[x_1, x_2, x_3, \ldots]$ where $-1$ acts by mapping $x_i$ to $-x_i$. The invariant ring $R = A^G$ is the $\mathbf{C}$-algebra generated by all $x_ix_j$. Hence $R \subset A$ is not finite. But $R$ is a normal domain with fraction field $K = L^G$ the $G$-invariants in the fraction field $L$ of $A$. And clearly $A$ is the integral closure of $R$ in $L$.

with fraction field $K = L^G$ the $G$-invariants in the fraction field
$L$ of $A$. And clearly $A$ is the integral closure of $R$ in
