The theory of invariance of modules under automorphisms of their envelopes and covers has opened up a whole new direction in the study of module theory. It offers a new perspective on generalizations of injective, pure-injective and flat-cotorsion modules beyond relaxing conditions on liftings of homomorphisms. This has set off a flurry of work in the area, with hundreds of papers using the theory appearing in the last decade. This book gives the first unified treatment of the topic. The authors are real experts in the area, having played a major part in the breakthrough of this new theory and its subsequent applications. The first chapter introduces the basics of ring and module theory needed for the following sections, making it self-contained and suitable for graduate students. The authors go on to develop and explain their tools, enabling researchers to employ them, extend and simplify known results in the literature and to solve longstanding problems in module theory, many of which are discussed at the end of the book.
Finitely accessible categories naturally arise in the context of the classical theory of purity. In this paper we generalise the notion of purity for a more general class and introduce techniques to study such classes in terms of indecomposable pure injectives related to a new notion of purity. We apply our results in the study of the class of flat quasi-coherent sheaves on an arbitrary scheme.
It is proved that if $R$ is an associative ring that is cotorsion as a left module over itself, and $J$ is the Jacobson radical of $R$, then the quotient ring $R/J$ is a left self-injective von Neumann regular ring and idempotents lift modulo $J$. In particular, if $R$ is indecomposable, then it is a local ring.
Let M be an essentially finitely generated injective (or, more generally, quasi-continuous) module. It is shown that if M satisfies a mild uniqueness condition on essential closures of certain submodules, then the existence of an infinite independent set of submodules of M implies the existence of a larger independent set on some quotient of M modulo a directed union of direct summands. This provides new characterisations of injective (or quasi-continuous) modules of finite Goldie dimension. These results are then applied to the study of indecomposable decompositions of quasi-continuous modules and nonsingular CS modules.
We characterise reflexive modules over the rings R such that each finitely generated submodule of E(RR) is torsionless (left QF-3″ rings) by means of a suitable linear compactness condition relative to the Lambek torsion theory.
