Idempotents and Decomposition
Let R be a general ring, not necessarily commutative. An element x∈R is said to be idempotent if x2 = x. Note An endomorphism f of an Rmodule M (i.e. ) is an idempotent if and only if f is a projection, i.e. M = ker(f) ⊕ im(f) and f … Continue reading

KrullSchmidt Theorem
Here, we will prove that the process of decomposing is unique, given that M is noetherian and artinian. Again, R is a ring, possibly noncommutative. Definition. A decomposition of an Rmodule M is an expression for nonzero modules An Rmodule M is said … Continue reading

Local Rings
Mathematicians are generally more familiar with the case of local commutative rings, so we’ll begin from there. Definition. A commutative ring R is said to be local if it has a unique maximal ideal. Note that every nonzero commutative ring has … Continue reading
