Prime Rings, Generalized Derivations, Functional Identities with Central Value


The commutativity of a prime ring and structure maps defined on it is studied here. In particular, we prove that a prime ring  is either commutative or a nonzero generalized derivation  defined on it is the identity map whenever it satisfies the certain functional identities on .
