### locally noetherian categories and the category of quasi-coherent sheaves over a noetherian scheme

It is known that a ring $R$ is noetherian if and only if direct sums of injective $R$-modules
are injective if and only if every injective $R$-module is a direct sum of indecomposable injective ...

### Graded version of Baer's Criterion

Baer's Criterion for injectiveness of modules says: "An $R$-module $E$ is injective iff for all ideals $I$ of $R$, every homomorphism $f\colon I \to E$ can be extended to $R$." I wonder if there is a ...

### Is $\mathcal{K}(H)$ injective $\mathcal{B}(H)$-module?

Does anyone know if the right Banach $\mathcal{B}(H)$-module $\mathcal{K}(H)$ is injective?
The same question for $\ell_\infty$-module $c_0$. Both these modules are not dual, so standard arguments ...

### Injective flat module

Let $R$ be a (right noetherian) ring. Is there always a right $R$-module which is both flat and injective? If $R$ is an integral domain, then the answer is indeed yes, as the quotient field is such.

### Injective modules over noncommutative noetherian rings

Let $R$ be a left noetherian ring, then it is well known that Matlis proved that any injective $R$-module decomposes into a sum of indecomposable injectives, each of form $E(R/I)$ for some irreducible ...

### Localisation of injectives

When working with injective modules, one bad thing is that they do not necessarily behave well with respect to localisation. Consider a commutative ring $R$ and have a look at the following ...

### Rejects and injectives

Let $A$ be any ring and consider modules on the left. For $M$ $A$-module, the trace $Tr(M,A)$ is a two-sided ideal of $A$. If $A$ is a unitary ring then:
$Tr(P,A)P=P$, for $P$ projective;

### the direct sum of injective modules need not be injective

The Bass-Papp Theorem asserts that a commutative ring $R$ is Noetherian iff every direct sum of injective $R$-modules is injective. Thus every non-Noetherian ring carries a counterexample.
If
