On cotorsion radicals

V. S. Ramamurthi and Edgar Andrews Rutter

Vol. 62 (1976), No. 1, 163–172

Necessary and sufficient conditions are obtained for the splitting of a hereditary cotorsion radical on the category R of right R-modules. It is shown that for injective cogenerator rings and orders in semi-simple rings, all hereditary cotorsion radicals split. Several other questions are also discussed. These include the relationship between cotorsion radicals for R and R, and the connection between the properties of a projective module and those of the cotorsion radical it induces.
