Covers and envelopes by \(V\)-Gorenstein modules. (English) Zbl 1087.16002
Let \(R\) and \(S\) denote right and left Noetherian rings respectively and \(V\) a dualizing module. \(A(R)\) denotes the Auslander class relative to \(V\). Let \(\mathcal U\) be the class of all left \(R\)-modules \(N\) such that \(N\cong\operatorname{Hom}_S(V,E)\) for some \(E\in S\)-Mod injective.
A left \(R\)-module \(M\) is said to be \(V\)-Gorenstein injective if there exists an exact resolution \(\cdots\to U_1\to U_0\to U^0\to U^1\to\cdots\) with every \(U_i\) and \(U^i\) in \(\mathcal U\) and \(M=\text{Ker}(U^0\to U^1)\) and such that the sequence remains exact whenever \(\operatorname{Hom}_R(U,-)\) and \(\operatorname{Hom}_R(-,U)\) are applied for every \(U\in\mathcal U\). \(V\)-Gorenstein projectivity is defined dually.
Various equivalences for \(N\in R\)-Mod to be \(V\)-Gorenstein injective are found in terms of \(N\in A(R)\) and some properties concerning \(\text{Ext}_R^1(-,N)\). As a corollary to this theorem, one sees that the class of \(V\)-Gorenstein injective modules is closed under finite direct sums and direct summands. If \(V\text{-Gor\,Inj}\) is the class of \(V\)-Gorenstein injective \(R\)-modules and \(L\) is the subclass of \(A(R)\) of finite right \(U\)-dimension, \((L, V\text{-Gor\,Inj})\) is proven to be a perfect hereditary complete cotorsion theory of \(A(R)\). The results on \(V\)-Gorenstein injectivity are subsequently dualized to \(V\)-Gorenstein projectivity and if \(R\) is left perfect, then \((V\text{-Gor\,Proj},L)\) is shown to be a hereditary complete cotorsion theory of \(B(S)\), the Bass class (relative to \(V\)). Sufficient conditions for every finitely generated left \(S\)-module \(M\in B(S)\) to have a \(V\)-Gorenstein projective cover are also derived.
