Abstract: Down-up algebras were introduced by G. Benkart and T. Roby to better understand the structure of certain posets. In this paper, we prove that is equivalent to being right (or left) Noetherian, and also to being a domain. Furthermore, when this occurs, we show that is Auslander-regular and has global dimension 3.
