[Chapter 0, Definition 23.1.1, EGA]

Definition 10.161.1. Let $R$ be a domain with field of fractions $K$.

  1. We say $R$ is N-1 if the integral closure of $R$ in $K$ is a finite $R$-module.

  2. We say $R$ is N-2 or Japanese if for any finite extension $L/K$ of fields the integral closure of $R$ in $L$ is finite over $R$.
