Large subdirect products of flat modules. (English) Zbl 0845.16003
The authors look at the problem of when every \(\aleph\)-product [cf. J. Dauns, Pac. J. Math. 126, 1-19 (1987; Zbl 0597.16020)] of copies of a given flat right \(R\)-module \(U\) is flat, where \(\aleph\) is an infinite cardinal number. They characterize these modules in terms of a sort of “relative coherence” of the ring \(R\) with respect to the module \(U\) and the cardinal \(\aleph\). In the last part of the paper they give some applications to the endomorphism ring \(S\) of \(U\), determining when \(\aleph\)-products of \(S_S\) are either flat or projective.
