Elementary Module Theory (III): Approaching Linear Algebra
The Hom Group Continuing from the previous installation, here’s another way of writing the universal properties for direct sums and products. Let Hom(M, N) be the set of all module homomorphisms M → N; then: (*) for any Rmodule N. In the case where there’re finitely … Continue reading

Elementary Module Theory (II)
Having defined submodules, let’s proceed to quotient modules. Unlike the case of groups and rings, any submodule can give a quotient module without any additional condition imposed. Definition. Let N be a submodule of M. By definition, it’s an additive … Continue reading

Introduction to Ring Theory (4)
It’s now time to talk about homomorphisms. Definition. Let R, S be rings. A function f : R → S is a ring homomorphism if it satisfies the following: f(1R) = 1S; f(x+y) = f(x) + f(y) for all x, y in … Continue reading
