Abstract: Let be a local ring and be an -primary ideal such that , where . Denote the associated graded ring with respect to , by . Then , for some homogeneous ideal . Set , where is a set of homogeneous elements which form a minimal basis of . The main result in this note is that if is a Cohen-Macaulay local ring of dimension 1 and if is free over , then , where is the reduction number of . It follows that where is the multiplicity of .
