Generic splitting algebras for Pic

Gerald Seymour Garfinkel

Vol. 35 (1970), No. 2, 369–380
Abstract

Our purpose is to develop a splitting theory for the functor Pic. For each rank one projective module P, we exhibit a generic splitting algebra T(P∕R). Whenever n is a multiple of the order of P in Pic (R), it has a splitting algebra which is a rank n projective module. We then show the relationship of the latter algebra to the usual splitting ring of an ideal in a Dedekind domain.
