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

Jacabson Radical
Recall that the radical of the base ring R is called its Jacobson radical and denoted by J(R); this is a twosided ideal of R. Earlier, we had proven that a ring R is semisimple if and only if it is artinian and J(R) = … Continue reading

Composition Series
Positive integers can be uniquely factored as a product of primes. Here, we would like to prove a counterpart for modules. Now there are two ways to “factor” a module M; a more liberal way takes a submodule N which gives us composition … Continue reading

Radical of Module
As mentioned in the previous article, we will now describe the “bad elements” in a ring R which stops it from being semisimple. Consider the following ring: Since R is finitedimensional over the reals, it is both artinian and noetherian. However, R is not … Continue reading

Structure of Semisimple Rings
It turns out there is a nice classification for semisimple rings. Theorem. Any semisimple ring R is a finite product: where each is a division ring and is the ring of n × n matrices with entries in D. Furthermore, the … Continue reading
Introduction to Ring Theory (8)
Matrix Rings In this post, we’ll be entering the matrix. Let R be a ring. The ring Mn×n(R) is the set of matrices whose entries are elements of R, where the addition and multiplication operations are given by the usual matrix addition … Continue reading
