In this book, the authors present both traditional and modern discoveries in the subject area, concentrating on advanced aspects of the topic.
Existing material is studied in detail, including finitely generated modules, projective and injective modules, and the theory of torsion and torsion-free modules. Some topics are treated from a new point of view. Also included are areas not found in current texts, for example, pure-injectivity, divisible modules, uniserial modules, etc.
Special emphasis is given to results that are valid over arbitrary domains. The authors concentrate on modules over valuation and Prüfer domains, but also discuss Krull and Matlis domains, \(h\)-local, reflexive, and coherent domains. The volume can serve as a standard reference book for specialists working in the area and also is a suitable text for advanced-graduate algebra courses and seminars.
Advanced graduate students and research mathematicians interested in commutative rings and algebras.
"The well-written and detailed volume under review deals with a great many topics within the theory of modules over arbitrary non-Noetherian commutative integral domains with identity elements ... Many ... results appear here in book form for the first time ... The reviewer heartily recommends this volume."
