Abstract: This paper supplies a counterexample to the conjecture that factorial implies Noetherian in finite Krull dimension. The example is the integral closure of a three-dimensional Noetherian ring, and is the union of Noetherian domains, which are proven to be factorial by means of derivation techniques.
