Modules with supplements

Kalathoor Varadarajan

Vol. 82 (1979), No. 2, 559–564
Abstract

Let M be an R-module and N M. Any H M satisfying H + N = M (i) and H′⊂ H, H+ N = M H= H (ii) will be referred to as a supplement of N in M. In general N need not have a supplement in M. A module M will be said to have property (P1) if every N M has a supplemenl in M. If for every A M, N M with A + N = M, there exists a supplement H of N in M satisfying H A, we say that M has property (P2). Modules with property (P2) play an important role in our study of dual Goldie dimension. In the present paper we determine the class of rings R with the property that every M R-mod possesses property (P2). These ture out to be left perfect rings. Also the results obtained here throw more light on the differences between corank and P. Fleury’s spanning dimension.
