Abstract: Let I be an ideal in a Noetherian domain R, and let Î be the integral closure of I. Let $ {\hat A^ \ast }(I) = {\text{Ass}}(R/{\hat I^n})$ for n large (it being known that for large n this set does not vary with n). Suppose that R satisfies the altitude formula. Then it is shown that $ P \in {\hat A^ \ast }(I)$ if and only if height $ P = l({I_P})$, the analytic spread of $ {I_P}$.
