Advanced Lie teams have usually been used as auxiliaries within the learn of genuine Lie teams in components equivalent to differential geometry and illustration conception. thus far, even if, no publication has absolutely explored and constructed their structural features. The constitution of advanced Lie teams addresses this desire. Self-contained, it starts off with normal options brought through a nearly advanced constitution on a true Lie staff.

Deduce that I + AB is a unit if and only if I + BA is; prove this directly by evaluating I − B(I + AB)−1 A. 4◦ . Under what circumstances is AB stably associated to BA? 5. Let R be a ring with UGN. If A, A satisfy a comaximal relation (7), show that i(A) ≥ i(A ). Deduce that if A, A satisfy a comaximal relation and A , A likewise, then A and A are stably associated. 6. 7. Hence find examples of pairs of matrices (over a weakly finite ring, say) that satisfy a comaximal relation but are not stably associated.

For any ring R, show that R and Rn (n > 1) have isomorphic centres. Prove this fact by characterizing the centre of R as the set of all natural transformations of the identity functor on R Mod. 7. Let R = K n be a full matrix ring and f : R → S any ring homomorphism. Show that S is a full n × n matrix ring, say S = L n and there is a homomorphism φ : K → L inducing f. 8. (G. M. Bergman) Let n ≥ 1 be an integer and R a ring in which every right ideal that is not finitely generated has a finitely generated direct summand that cannot be generated by n elements.

3 Projective modules 15 The structure of S(R) is closely related to certain properties of the ring R, while K o (R) reflects the corresponding stable properties. This is illustrated in the next result, where by a stably free module we understand a module P such that P ⊕ R m ∼ = R n , for some integers m, n ≥ 0. 4. Let R be any ring and denote by λ : Z → K o (R) the homomorphism mapping 1 to (R). Then (i) R has IBN if and only if λ is injective and (ii) every finitely generated projective module is stably free if and only if λ is surjective.
