A universal Gröbner basis is a finite basis for a polynomial ideal that has the Gröbner property with respect to all admissible term-orders. Let R be a commutative polynomial ring over a field K, or more generally a non-commutative polynomial ring of solvable type over K (see [KRW]). We show, how to construct and characterize left, right, two-sided, and reduced universal Gröbner bases in R. Moreover, we extend the upper complexity bounds in [We4] to the construction of universal Gröbner bases. Finally, we prove the stability of universal Gröbner bases under specialization of coefficients. All these results have counterparts for polynomial rings over commutative regular rings (comp. [We3]).
