Rings characterised by semiprimitive modules
Published online by Cambridge University Press: 17 April 2009
A module M is called a CS-module if every submodule of M is essential in a direct summand of M. It is shown that a ring R is semilocal if and only if every semiprimitive right R-module is CS. Furthermore, it is also shown that the following statements are equivalent for a ring R: (i) R is semiprimary and every right (or left) R-module is injective; (ii) every countably generated semiprimitive right R-module is a direct sum of a projective module and an injective module.
