Commutative Algebra 27
Free Modules All modules are over a fixed ring A. We already mentioned finite free modules earlier. Here we will consider general free modules. Definition. Let be any set. The free Amodule on I is a direct sum of copies of … Continue reading

Commutative Algebra 8
Generated Submodule Since the intersection of an arbitrary family of submodules of M is a submodule, we have the concept of a submodule generated by a subset. Definition. Given any subset , let denote the set of all submodules of M containing … Continue reading

Projective Modules and Artinian Rings
Projective Modules Recall that Hom(M, ) is leftexact: for any module M and exact , we get an exact sequence Definition. A module M is projective if Hom(M, ) is exact, i.e. if for any surjective N→N”, the resulting HomR(M, N) → HomR(M, N”) is … Continue reading
