Regularity ascends along smooth maps of rings.

Lemma 10.163.10. Let $\varphi : R \to S$ be a ring map. Assume

  1. $\varphi $ is smooth,

  2. $R$ is a regular ring.

Then $S$ is regular.

Proof. This follows from Lemma 10.163.5 applied for all $(R_ k)$ using Lemma 10.140.3 to see that the hypotheses are satisfied. $\square$
