Lemma 10.36.2. Let $\varphi : R \to S$ be a ring map. Let $y \in S$. If there exists a finite $R$-submodule $M$ of $S$ such that $1 \in M$ and $yM \subset M$, then $y$ is integral over $R$.

Proof. Consider the map $\varphi : M \to M$, $x \mapsto y \cdot x$. By Lemma 10.16.2 there exists a monic polynomial $P \in R[T]$ with $P(\varphi ) = 0$. In the ring $S$ we get $P(y) = P(y) \cdot 1 = P(\varphi )(1) = 0$. $\square$

Is that not just an application of Lemma 05BT to the morphism ? From there we get a polynomial with , and then .
