k -free separable groups with prescribed endomorphism ring

Daniel Herden, Héctor Gabriel Salazar Pedroza (2015)

Fundamenta Mathematicae

We will consider unital rings A with free additive group, and want to construct (in ZFC) for each natural number k a family of k -free A-modules G which are separable as abelian groups with special decompositions. Recall that an A-module G is k -free if every subset of size < k is contained in a free submodule (we will refine this in Definition 3.2); and it is separable as an abelian group if any finite subset of G is contained in a free direct summand of G. Despite the fact that such a module G is...

Abelian group pairs having a trivial coGalois group

Paul Hill (2008)

Czechoslovak Mathematical Journal

Torsion-free covers are considered for objects in the category q 2 . Objects in the category q 2 are just maps in R -Mod. For R = , we find necessary and sufficient conditions for the coGalois group G ( A B ) , associated to a torsion-free cover, to be trivial for an object A B in q 2 . Our results generalize those of E. Enochs and J. Rado for abelian groups.

Abelian groups of zero adjoint entropy

L. Salce, P. Zanardo (2010)

Colloquium Mathematicae

The notion of adjoint entropy for endomorphisms of an Abelian group is somehow dual to that of algebraic entropy. The Abelian groups of zero adjoint entropy, i.e. ones whose endomorphisms all have zero adjoint entropy, are investigated. Torsion groups and cotorsion groups satisfying this condition are characterized. It is shown that many classes of torsionfree groups contain groups of either zero or infinite adjoint entropy. In particular, no characterization of torsionfree groups of zero adjoint...

An extension of Zassenhaus' theorem on endomorphism rings

Manfred Dugas, Rüdiger Göbel (2007)

Fundamenta Mathematicae

Let R be a ring with identity such that R⁺, the additive group of R, is torsion-free. If there is some R-module M such that R M R ( = R ) and E n d ( M ) = R , we call R a Zassenhaus ring. Hans Zassenhaus showed in 1967 that whenever R⁺ is free of finite rank, then R is a Zassenhaus ring. We will show that if R⁺ is free of countable rank and each element of R is algebraic over ℚ, then R is a Zassenhaus ring. We will give an example showing that this restriction on R is needed. Moreover, we will show that a ring due to A....

Colloquium Mathematicae

A ring R is called an E-ring if every endomorphism of R⁺, the additive group of R, is multiplication on the left by an element of R. This is a well known notion in the theory of abelian groups. We want to change the "E" as in endomorphisms to an "A" as in automorphisms: We define a ring to be an A-ring if every automorphism of R⁺ is multiplication on the left by some element of R. We show that many torsion-free finite rank (tffr) A-rings are actually E-rings. While we have an example of a mixed...
