By Donald S. Passman

First released in 1991, this ebook comprises the middle fabric for an undergraduate first direction in ring conception. utilizing the underlying subject matter of projective and injective modules, the writer touches upon a number of features of commutative and noncommutative ring concept. particularly, a couple of significant effects are highlighted and proved. half I, 'Projective Modules', starts off with easy module concept after which proceeds to surveying a number of specific sessions of jewelry (Wedderbum, Artinian and Noetherian jewelry, hereditary jewelry, Dedekind domain names, etc.). This half concludes with an advent and dialogue of the techniques of the projective dimension.Part II, 'Polynomial Rings', experiences those earrings in a mildly noncommutative surroundings. many of the effects proved contain the Hilbert Syzygy Theorem (in the commutative case) and the Hilbert Nullstellensatz (for virtually commutative rings). half III, 'Injective Modules', comprises, particularly, numerous notions of the hoop of quotients, the Goldie Theorems, and the characterization of the injective modules over Noetherian earrings. The ebook includes various workouts and an inventory of steered extra studying. it really is appropriate for graduate scholars and researchers drawn to ring idea.
