A 2003 counterexample to a conjecture of Auslander brought attention to a family of rings-colloquially called AC rings-that satisfy a natural condition on vanishing of cohomology. Several results attest to the remarkable homological properties of AC rings, but their definition is barely operational, and it remains unknown if they form a class that is closed under typical constructions in ring theory. In this paper, we study transfer of the AC property along local homomorphisms of Cohen-Macaulay rings. In particular, we show that the AC property is preserved by standard procedures in local algebra. Our results also yield new examples of Cohen-Macaulay AC rings.
