Let \((R,\tau_R)\) be a separated topological unital ring and let \(M\) be a left unitary \(R\)-module. The article is devoted to the following questions: 1. Does \(M\) admit an \(n\)-premaximal \((R,\tau_R)\)-module topology (for the definition, see the authors’ paper [Izv. Akad. Nauk Respub. Mold., Mat. 1996, No. 1, 96-105 (1996)]) for each natural number \(n\)? 2. How do the \(n\)-premaximal topologies on \(M\) look like if they exist?
The authors indicate conditions under which the question of existence of premaximal topologies has a positive solution and has a negative solution. They describe \(n\)-premaximal topologies in the case when \(R\) is a skew field and the topology \(\tau_R\) is determined by a real absolute value.
