Lemma 15.42.1. Let $\varphi : R \to S$ be a ring map. Assume

$\varphi $ is regular,

$S$ is Noetherian, and

$R$ is Noetherian and reduced.

Then $S$ is reduced.

This section is the analogue of Algebra, Section 10.161 but where the ring map $R \to S$ is regular.

Lemma 15.42.1. Let $\varphi : R \to S$ be a ring map. Assume

$\varphi $ is regular,

$S$ is Noetherian, and

$R$ is Noetherian and reduced.

Then $S$ is reduced.

**Proof.**
For Noetherian rings being reduced is the same as having properties $(S_1)$ and $(R_0)$, see Algebra, Lemma 10.155.3. Hence we may apply Algebra, Lemmas 10.161.4 and 10.161.5.

Lemma 15.42.2. Let $\varphi : R \to S$ be a ring map. Assume

$\varphi $ is regular,

$S$ is Noetherian, and

$R$ is Noetherian and normal.

Then $S$ is normal.

**Proof.**
For Noetherian rings being normal is the same as having properties $(S_2)$ and $(R_1)$, see Algebra, Lemma 10.155.4. Hence we may apply Algebra, Lemmas 10.161.4 and 10.161.5.
