Abstract: Let be a local ring of positive dimension and let be an primary ideal. We denote the reduction number of by , which is the smallest integer such that for some reduction of In this paper we give an upper bound on in terms of numerical invariants which are related with the Hilbert coefficients of when is CohenMacaulay. If , it is known that where denotes the multiplicity of If in Corollary 1.5 we prove where is the first Hilbert coefficient of From this bound several results follow. Theorem 1.3 gives an upper bound on in a more general setting.
