### $ mult(R/I) = d_1 \cdots d_r \quad \Rightarrow \quad f_1,\dots,f_r \quad \text{is a $R$-regular sequence?}$

We define multiplicity of a module M of dimension $d>0$ as $$mult(M) := lc (P_M) (d-1)!$$ where $P_M$ denotes the Hilbert polynomial of M. Equivalently, we have $mult(M) = Q_M(1)$, where $HP_M (z) ...

### 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 ...
