    Paula Carvalho (Porto), Simple modules and their essential extensions for skew polynomial rings.

  • Abstract:
    A Noetherian ring S whose simple modules have the property that their finitely generated essential extensions are Artinian is said to satisfy property ◇. For commutative Noetherian rings the validity of ◇ is due to Matlis (1958). In this talk we will discuss ◇ for skew polynomial rings S=R [ θ ; α ] where R is a commutative Noetherian ring and α is an automorphism of R. A complete characterization is found when R is an affine algebra over a field K and α is a K-automorphism.
