Rings and categories of modules. 2. ed. (English) Zbl 0765.16001
Graduate Texts in Mathematics. 13. New York: Springer-Verlag. viii, 376 p. (1992).

This is the second edition of a book first published in 1974; see Zbl 0301.16001. Since then the book has become one of the standard references in the area of ring theory approached via the theory of modules and their categories. Compared to the first edition, the contents was extended by adding a chapter on “Classical Artinian rings”. It is concerned with rings with duality, quasi-Frobenius rings and serial rings.

From the preface: Following a brief outline of set-theoretic and categorical foundations, the text begins with the basic definitions and properties of rings, modules and homomorphisms and ranges through comprehensive treatments of direct sums, finiteness conditions, the Wedderburn-Artin theorem, the Jacobson radical, the hom and tensor functions, Morita equivalence and duality, decomposition theory of injective and projective modules, and semiperfect and perfect rings. In this second edition we have included a chapter containing many of the classical results on artinian rings that have helped to form the foundation for much of the contemporary research on the representation theory of artinian rings and finite dimensional algebras. Both to illustrate the text and to extend it we have included a substantial number of exercises covering a wide spectrum of difficulty. There are, of course, many important areas of ring and module theory that the text does not touch upon. For example, we have made no attempt to cover such subjects as homology, rings of quotients, or commutative ring theory.
