Abstract: Let R denote a commutative ring with identity. If there exists a chain $ {P_0} \subset {P_1} \subset \cdots \subset {P_n}$ of $ n + 1$ prime ideals of R, where $ {P_n} \ne R$, but no such chain of $ n + 2$ prime ideals, then we say that R has dimension n. The power series ring $ R[[X]]$ may have infinite dimension even though R has finite dimension.
