Abstract: A ring is said to be coprimely packed if whenever is an ideal of and is a set of maximal ideals of with , then for some . Let be a ring and be the localization of at its set of monic polynomials. We prove that if is a Noetherian normal domain, then the ring is coprimely packed if and only if is a Dedekind domain with torsion ideal class group. Moreover, this is also equivalent to the condition that each proper prime ideal of is a set theoretic complete intersection. A similar result is also proved when is either a Noetherian arithmetical ring or a Bézout domain of dimension one.
