Let $R$ be an associative ring with identity and let $J\left(R\right)$ denote the Jacobson radical of $R$. $R$ is said to be semilocal if $R/J\left(R\right)$ is Artinian. In this paper we give necessary and sufficient conditions for the group ring $RG$, where $G$ is an abelian group, to be semilocal.

A trivializability principle for local rings is described which leads to a form of weak algorithm for local semifirs with a finitely generated maximal ideal whose powers meet in zero.

A ring A is called a chain ring if it is a local, both sided artinian, principal ideal ring. Let R be a commutative chain ring. Let A be a faithful R-algebra which is a chain ring such that Ā = A/J(A) is a separable field extension of R̅ = R/J(R). It follows from a recent result by Alkhamees and Singh that A has a commutative R-subalgebra R₀ which is a chain ring such that A = R₀ + J(A) and R₀ ∩ J(A) = J(R₀) = J(R)R₀. The structure of A in terms of a skew polynomial ring over R₀ is determined.

We introduce the notion of an automorphism liftable module and give a characterization to it. We prove that category equivalence preserves automorphism liftable. Furthermore, we characterize semisimple rings, perfect rings, hereditary rings and quasi-Frobenius rings by properties of automorphism liftable modules. Also, we study automorphism liftable modules with summand sum property (SSP) and summand intersection property (SIP).

We characterize semiperfect modules, semiperfect rings, and perfect rings using locally projective covers and generalized locally projective covers, where locally projective modules were introduced by Zimmermann-Huisgen and generalized locally projective covers are adapted from Azumaya’s generalized projective covers.
