Regular and semisimple modules

T. J. Cheatham and J. R. Smith

Vol. 65 (1976), No. 2, 315–323
Abstract

A module is regular if all its submodules are (Cohn) pure. The family of all regular modules is closed under products if and only if R∕J(R) is a von Neumann regular ring. If each regular R-module is semisimple then R is a T-ring. An extra condition is needed for the converse. Character modules and extensions of regular and semisimple modules are investigated.
