Weak Nil Clean Rings

We introduce the concept of a weak nil clean ring, a generalization of nil clean ring, which is nothing but a ring with unity in which every element can be expressed as sum or difference of a nilpotent and an idempotent. Further if the idempotent and nilpotent commute the ring is called weak* nil clean. We characterize all $n\in \mathbb{N}$, for which $\mathbb{Z}_n$ is weak nil clean but not nil clean. We show that if $R$ is a weak* nil clean and $e$ is an idempotent in $R$, then the corner ring $eRe$ is also weak* nil clean. Also we discuss $S$-weak nil clean rings and their properties, where $S$ is a set of idempotents and show that if $S=\{0, 1\}$, then a $S$-weak nil clean ring contains a unique maximal ideal. Finally we show that weak* nil clean rings are exchange rings and strongly nil clean rings provided $2\in R$ is nilpotent in the later case. We have ended the paper with introduction of weak J-clean rings.
