 The Nilpotent Regular Element Problem We use George Bergman's recent normal form for universally adjoining an inner inverse to show that, for general rings, a nilpotent regular element $x$ need not be unit-regular. This contrasts sharply with the situation for nilpotent regular elements in exchange rings (a large class of rings), and for general rings when all powers of the nilpotent element $x$ are regular.

 A Theorem on Unit-Regular Rings Let $R$ be a unit-regular ring and let $\sigma$ be an endomorphism of $R$ such that $\sigma (e)=e$ for all $e^2=e\in R$ and let $n\ge 0$. It is proved that every element of $R[x \mathinner;\sigma]/(x^{n+1})$ is equivalent to an element of the form $e_0+e_1x+\dots +e_nx^n$, where the $e_i$ are orthogonal idempotents of $R$. As an application, it is proved that $R[x \mathinner; \sigma ]/(x^{n+1})$ is left morphic for each $n\ge 0$.

 Endomorphisms That Are the Sum of a Unit and a Root of a Fixed Polynomial If $C=C(R)$ denotes the center of a ring $R$ and $g(x)$ is a polynomial in C[x]$, Camillo and Sim\'{o}n called a ring$g(x)$-clean if every element is the sum of a unit and a root of$g(x)$. If$V$is a vector space of countable dimension over a division ring$D,$they showed that$\end {}_{D}V$is$g(x)$-clean provided that$g(x)$has two roots in$C(D)$. If$g(x)=x-x^{2}$this shows that$\end {}_{D}V$is clean, a result of Nicholson and Varadarajan. In this paper we remove the countable condition, and in fact prove that$\Mend {}_{R}M$is$g(x)$-clean for any semisimple module$M$over an arbitrary ring$R$provided that$g(x)\in (x-a)(x-b)C[x]$where$a,b\in C$and both$b$and$b-a$are units in$R\$.
