### Doubt in this proof of Horrocks theorem

I'm beginning to study some research papers and I need right now to understand the solution of Vaseršteĭn of Serre's theorem (simplest proof of this theorem), to do so, I'm beginning to understand ...

### cofree modules and dual

1, Why do people pay special attention to Q/Z in the definition of cofree modules instead of ordinary abelian groups? 2, Over a PID, is every injective module cofree? Just like the relationship ...

### is every finitely n-presented (S^{-1})R-module a localization of a finitely n-presented R-module?

Let S be a multiplicative set in a ring R. We can see that every finitely generated $(S^{-1})R$-module is a localization of a finitely generated R-module. Then, more generally, is every finitely ...

### Classification of pairs of commuting endomorphisms

Let $K$ be an algebraically closed field. I'm interested in isomorphism classes of triples $(V,f,g)$ where $V$ is a finite dimensional $K$-vector space and $f,g$ are commuting endomorphisms of $V$. ...

### Homocyclic primary module over PID

I posed the question here, but get no answers yet. Let $R$ be a PID, $M$ be an $R$-module. If $M$ is isomorphic to $r$ copies of cyclic primary module $R/\langle p^s\rangle$ where $p$ is a prime ...

### Is there an $A$ such that $B$ injective iff 1st Ext functor vanishes?

In the category of $\mathbb{Z}$-modules, there exists a module $A$---for instance $\bigoplus_{k=2}^\infty \mathbb{Z}/k\mathbb{Z}$---such that a $\mathbb{Z}$-module $B$ is injective iff ...

### An example of a tensor product consisting of only simple tensors?

Hy guys. I'm doing some independent analysis which makes use of the tensor product of modules (over commutative rings with unit 1, and ring homomorphisms map $1 \mapsto 1$). Let $\pi: A' \to A$ be a ...

### Invariants of a module, 'readily' computable from the presentation matrix

Suppose we know the presentation matrix of a module. (For simplicity: the module is over a local Noetherian ring, the ring is over a field.) For which invariants of the module some explicit(!) ...

### Support of a module over a polynomial algebra

In Atiyah and Bott's paper "The Moment Map and Equivariant Cohomology", they say that for any exact sequence of modules over $\mathbb{C}[u_1,...,u_l]$ $$D \to E \to F,$$ we have that Supp $E \subset$ ...

### Are there non-reflexive modules isomorphic to their bi-dual?

Let $M$ be an $R$-module. We say that $M$ is reflexive if the natural map $M\rightarrow M^{**}$ is an isomorphism. I'd like to know if there exists a module isomorphic to its bi-dual but not ...

### Existence of a minimal generating set of a module

Does a module (over a commutative ring) always possess a minimal generating set? When the module is not finitely generated, the typical Zorn's lemma type argument doesn't seem to work. More precisely, ...
The following statement is well-known: $A$ a commutative Noetherian ring, $M$ a finitely generated $A$-module. Than $M$ is flat if and only if $M_{\mathfrak{p}}$ is free for all $\mathfrak{p}$. My ...
