Commutative Algebra 52
Direct Limits of Rings Let be a directed system of rings. Regard them as a directed system of abelian groups (i.e. ℤmodules) and take the direct limit A. Proposition 1. The abelian group A has a natural structure of a … Continue reading

Commutative Algebra 50
Adjoint Functors Adjoint functors are a general construct often used for describing universal properties (among other things). Take two categories and . Definition. Covariant functors and are said to be adjoint if we have isomorphisms which are natural in A and … Continue reading

Commutative Algebra 31
Flat Modules Recall from proposition 3 here: for an Amodule M, is a rightexact functor. Definition. We say M is flat over A (or Aflat) if is an exact functor, equivalently, if A flat Aalgebra is an Aalgebra which is flat as … Continue reading
Commutative Algebra 29
Distributivity Finally, tensor product is distributive over arbitrary direct sums. Proposition 1. Given any family of modules , we have: Proof Take the map which takes . Note that this is welldefined: since only finitely many are nonzero, only finitely … Continue reading

Polynomials and Representations XXXIX
Some Invariant Theory We continue the previous discussion. Recall that for we have a equivariant map which induces an isomorphism between the unique copies of in both spaces. The kernel Q of this map is spanned by for various fillings T with shape and entries … Continue reading
Polynomials and Representations XXXVII
Notations and Recollections For a partition , one takes its Young diagram comprising of boxes. A filling is given by a function for some positive integer m. When m=d, we will require the filling to be bijective, i.e. T contains {1,…,d} and each element occurs exactly … Continue reading
Modular Representation Theory (III)
Let’s work out some explicit examples of modular characters. First, we have a summary of the main results. Let be the modular characters of the simple k[G]modules; they form a basis of Let be those of the projective indecomposable k[G]modules; they form a basis … Continue reading
Tensor Product over Noncommutative Rings
Following the earlier article on tensor products of vector spaces, we will now look at tensor products of modules over a ring R, not necessarily commutative. It turns out we have to distinguish between left and right modules now. Indeed recall … Continue reading

Tensor Product and Linear Algebra
Tensor products can be rather intimidating for firsttimers, so we’ll start with the simplest case: that of vector spaces over a field K. Suppose V and W are finitedimensional vector spaces over K, with bases and respectively. Then the tensor product is the vector … Continue reading
