Let R be an elementary divisor domain, A, B ∈ M2(R). There exists invertible matrices PA, PB and QA, QB such that

PAAQA=E,  where E=diag(ε12),  ε12,

PBBQB=Δ,  where Δ=diag(δ12),  δ12.

Denote by PA and PB the sets of all matrices PA, PB, respectively. Denote by (A,B)l, [A,B]r  the greatest common left divisor and  the least common right multiple of the matrices A and B.

Theorem1. Let A∼E=diag(ε1,0),  B∼Δ=diag(δ1,0),  PBPA-1=||sij||12,  PAPA, PBPB .  If  s21=0, then  PAPB≠∅  and  (A,B)l=P-1Φ,  where  Φ=diag((ε11), 0),  P∈ PAPB.

Theorem 2. Let A∼E=diag(ε1,0),  B∼Δ=diag(δ1,0),  PBPA-1=||sij||12,  PAPA, PBPB .
             1) If  s21=0, then  PAPB≠∅  and  [A,B]r=P-1Ω,  where  Ω=diag([ε11], 0),  P∈ PAPB;
             2) If  s21≠0, then  [A,B]r=0.
