The radius of a subcategory of modules

Hailong Dao and Ryo Takahashi

Vol. 8 (2014), No. 1, 141–172
Abstract

We introduce a new invariant for subcategories X of finitely generated modules over a local ring R which we call the radius of X. We show that if R is a complete intersection and X is resolving, then finiteness of the radius forces X to contain only maximal Cohen–Macaulay modules. We also show that the category of maximal Cohen–Macaulay modules has finite radius when R is a Cohen–Macaulay complete local ring with perfect coefficient field. We link the radius to many well-studied notions such as the dimension of the stable category of maximal Cohen–Macaulay modules, finite/countable Cohen–Macaulay representation type and the uniform Auslander condition.

Dedicated to Professor Craig Huneke on the occasion of his sixtieth birthday
