I have the non-commutative ring R which is

How can I show that every right ideal in the ring R is projective and finitely generated. And how can I use this to show that the right global dimension of R is 1.

Perhaps it would help if you explained what

means! What does it mean for a matrix to have sets of numbers as entries? - Mar 21st 2009, 08:55 AMZetaX
it mean that you have rational and integers instead of \mathbb Q and mathbb Z.

and you add them as you add integers and same goes for multiplication. - Mar 22nd 2009, 12:17 AMNonCommAlg
you need to be reminded that creating multiple accounts is against this forum's rules! so, as a very mild punishment, you'll only get a partial help on this question!

start with observing that the right ideals of your ring, which i'll call it are exactly in this form: where is any integer and

is any vector subspace of and therefore it's either or isomorphic to also clearly and

which proves that are finitely generated projective submodules of the case is left for you.

hence is a right hereditary ring and therefore every submodule of a free R module has to be projective. so but is not semisimple (why?) and thus

which forces to be 1. - Mar 22nd 2009, 12:38 AMZetaX
I think you should give me full help, because I dont have any other account on this forum.

What about left ideals? How can I show that there are left ideals in R which are not projective and finitely generated, and how can I conclude that the left global dimension of R is >1. - Mar 22nd 2009, 12:43 AMmr fantastic
I think you should spend more than just 20 minutes thinking about what NonCommAlg has posted. What he has posted should give you enough to make progress. When/if you get stuck, you can then say specifically what you can't do.

NB: NonCommAlg**has**given full help - he was making a joke with that comment. Unfortunately, what you seem to think is full help is getting the complete solution without having to apply any effort. What we think is full help is giving the student who is willing to think a good push in the right direction. Try to be a bit be more grateful - you are clearly in much better shape to answer the question than you were when you first posted it. - Mar 22nd 2009, 01:00 AMSimonM
Then why did peteryellow post the same question on a different forum?

Thanks, non-commutative algebra for your help.

I have some questions.

What is e_11 and e_22?

I can see that I_1 and I_2 are finitely generated but how do you get that they are projective?

How do you know that R not semisimple implies that r.gl.dimR is different from 0.

And how can I see that R is not semisimple.

I know that R is right noetherian. Right? Can I use this to say something about that the ring R is not semisimple? - Mar 22nd 2009, 03:12 AMNonCommAlg

projective module is projective.

__Note__: i won't answer any further questions about this problem anymore. your questions show that you even don't have the minimum background required for problems at this level.

now it's time to get some sleep! (Sleepy)
