Quasi-projective dimension

Mohsen Gheibi, David A. Jorgensen and Ryo Takahashi

Vol. 312 (2021), No. 1, 113–147

We introduce a new homological invariant called quasi-projective dimension, which is a generalization of projective dimension. We discuss various properties of quasi-projective dimension. Among other things, we prove the following. (1) Over a quotient of a regular local ring by a regular sequence, every finitely generated module has finite quasi-projective dimension. (2) The Auslander–Buchsbaum formula and the depth formula for modules of finite projective dimension remain valid for modules of finite quasi-projective dimension. (3) Several results on vanishing of Tor and Ext hold for modules of finite quasi-projective dimension.
