# Algebra. Rings, modules and categories by Carl Faith By Carl Faith

VI of Oregon lectures in 1962, Bass gave simplified proofs of a couple of "Morita Theorems", incorporating rules of Chase and Schanuel. one of many Morita theorems characterizes while there's an equivalence of different types mod-A R::! mod-B for 2 jewelry A and B. Morita's resolution organizes principles so successfully that the classical Wedderburn-Artin theorem is an easy end result, and furthermore, a similarity category [AJ within the Brauer team Br(k) of Azumaya algebras over a commutative ring ok involves all algebras B such that the corresponding different types mod-A and mod-B including k-linear morphisms are similar via a k-linear functor. (For fields, Br(k) contains similarity sessions of straightforward significant algebras, and for arbitrary commutative okay, this is often subsumed lower than the Azumaya 1 and Auslander-Goldman [60J Brauer staff. ) a number of different cases of a marriage of ring thought and type (albeit a shot­ gun wedding!) are inside the textual content. in addition, in. my try and additional simplify proofs, significantly to get rid of the necessity for tensor items in Bass's exposition, I exposed a vein of rules and new theorems mendacity wholely inside of ring thought. This constitutes a lot of bankruptcy four -the Morita theorem is Theorem four. 29-and the root for it's a corre­ spondence theorem for projective modules (Theorem four. 7) recommended by way of the Morita context. As a derivative, this gives starting place for a slightly entire conception of straightforward Noetherian rings-but extra approximately this within the creation.

An octal number is a number written to base 8. Although binary numbers are ideally suited for handling by digital computers, they are rather cumbersome for handling by people. For example, 1658 10 =11001111010 2, that is, four decimal digits are replaced by eleven binary digits. However, since 23 = 8, any octal digit may be represented by three bits, for example, 18=0012 and 78=1112' etc. Thus, any binary number may be simply converted into its shorter octal equivalent, and any octal number into its binary equivalent.

Z+ denotes the set of non-negative integers and Z- the set of nonpositive integers. Thus Z+ =NU{O} Z-=Z\N Q = {p/qlpEZ, qEN} is the set of rational numbers. If XEZ, x/lEQ and since x/I = x, it follows that Z c Q. However, Q also contains elements not in Z such as 1/2, -1/3, 2/3. 1. Numbers which are not rational numbers form the set of irrational numbers, Q', and it is shown later that this set has infinite cardinality. 1 J2 is not a rational number. This may be expressed concisely as J2\$Q Proof The result is shown by assuming J2EQ and then deducing a contradiction.

If OP represents O(=a+ib and -----'" --+ OQ represents P=c+id then QP represents O(-p=(a-c)+i(b-d). ~ More generally, it can be easily shown that if PoP 1 represents a ~ ) complex number 0(1' P 1 P z represents 0(2' P 2P 3 represents 0(3' ... - 1P. represents O(m then pop. represents 0( 1 + 0(2 + ... + 0(. 17). 18). An immediate result from this observation is as follows. 19. 20. The length of OR is equal to the length of OP since the length of OQ is 1. The inclination of OR is n/2 greater than that of 6P since the inclination of OQ is n/2.
