Supplemented modules over Dedekind domains

Jutta Hausen

Vol. 100 (1982), No. 2, 387–402

The R-module M is said to be supplemented if every submodule of M has a minimal supplement. For R a Dedekind domain, we relate this lattice theoretical condition to direct decompositions of M, the smallness of the radical J(M) of M, the semi-simplicity and lifting of decompositions of M∕J(M), and the existence of quasi-projective covers. If M is contained in some R-module as a small submodule, M is said to be a small module. The structure of all supplemented and all small R-modules is determined and it is shown that, for R local, the smallness of J(M), the smallness of M, and M being a supplemented reduced module are equivalent conditions.
