Lemma 42.3.2. Let $R$ be a Noetherian local ring. Let $x \in R$. If $M$ is a finite Cohen-Macaulay module over $R$ with $\dim (\text{Supp}(M)) = 1$ and $\dim (\text{Supp}(M/xM)) = 0$, then

where $\mathfrak q_1, \ldots , \mathfrak q_ t$ are the minimal primes of the support of $M$. If $I \subset R$ is an ideal such that $x$ is a nonzerodivisor on $R/I$ and $\dim (R/I) = 1$, then

where $\mathfrak q_1, \ldots , \mathfrak q_ n$ are the minimal primes over $I$.
