Characterizing rings by a direct decomposition property of their modules
Published online by Cambridge University Press: 09 April 2009
A module M is said to satisfy the condition (℘*) if M is a direct sum of a projective module and a quasi-continuous module. In an earlier paper, we described the structure of rings over which every (countably generated) right module satisfies (℘*), and it was shown that such a ring is right artinian. In this note some additional properties of these rings are obtained. Among other results, we show that a ring over which all right modules satisfy (℘*) is also left artinian, but the property (℘*) is not left-right symmetric.
