Abstract:  The thesis is concerned with the behavior of certain ring properties with respect to the ring extension R (>) R{X,(delta)}, where the latter is the ring of differential polynomials. Three properties are considered. The first property is Morita Equivalence. Let F : ModR (>) ModS be an equivalence of module categories. Also let D(R) denote the Lie ring of derivations on R modulo the ideal of inner derivations on R. Then F induces a Lie ring isomorphism r(, ): D(R) (>) D(S). For each derivation (delta) on R, let (delta) denote the image of (delta) in D(R). Then (delta) determines a ring of(, ) differential polynomials, denoted by R{X,(delta)}, up to ring isomorphism. Let U(,R)(' ): ModR{X,(delta)} (>) ModR be the forgetful functor induced by the canonical ring map R(' )(>) R{X,(delta)}. If (lamda) = (OMEGA)((delta)), where (delta) is a derivation on R and (lamda) is a derivation on S, then F induces an equivalence F(' ): ModR{X,(delta)} (>)(' )ModS{X,(lamda)} such that U(,S(DEGREES)) F = F (,(DEGREES)) U(,R). Moreover, the lattice isomorphism from the lattice of ideals of R to the lattice of ideals of S induces an isomorphism from the lattice of (delta)invariant ideals of R to the(' )(lamda)invariant ideals of S.(' ) The second property is that of being a right order in a right Artinian ring. Using Block's characterization of (delta)simple rings with a minimal ideal, it is shown that, if R is a right order in a right Artinian ring, then R{X,(delta)} is also. Moreover, the multiplicative set of polynominals with regular leading coefficient is an exhaustive set. Finally, we consider orders in quasiFrobenius rings (QF rings). Assuming that R is of a QF ring, we show that the right Goldie dimension of R{X,(delta)} equals the length of R/N(,(delta))(R), where N(,(delta))(R) is the (delta)prime radical of R. From this it follows that, if R is a right order in a QF ring, then R{X,(delta)} is also. Let Q(,cl)(R) denote the right quotient ring of R, if it exists. Other consequences are the following: (a) If Q(,cl) (R) is right Artinian, then Q(,cl) (R) and Q(,cl)(R{X,(delta)}) have the same length. We also determine the structure of Q(,cl)(R{X,(delta)}) modulo its prime radical in terms of Q(,cl)(R). (b) If R is right Noetherian and (delta)semiprime, then Q(,cl)(R) is a QF ring. (c) If Q(,cl)(R) is a QF ring, then Q(,cl)(R/N(,(delta))(R)) is a QF ring. Finally, we consider some partial converses for the last two properties. If Q(,cl)(R{X,(delta)}) is right Artinian (QF), then Q(,cl)(R) is right Artinian (QF) if any of the following conditions hold: (i) The multiplicative set of polynomials with regular leading coefficient is an exhaustive set, (ii) N(R) is a (delta)invariant ideal, (iii) R is right Noetherian, or (iv) R is commutative.
