Abstract: Let $ R$ be a commutative ring with identity and let $ G$ be an abelian group of torsion-free rank $ \alpha $. If $ \{ {X_\lambda }\} $ is a set of indeterminates over $ R$ of cardinality $ \alpha $, then the group ring of $ G$ over $ R$ and the polynomial ring $ R[\{ {X_\lambda }\} ]$ have the same (Krull) dimension. The preceding result and a theorem due to T. Parker and the author imply that for each integer $ k \geqq 2$, there is a $ k$-dimensional non-Noetherian unique factorization domain of arbitrary characteristic.
