Let R be a commutative ring with identity element and let M be a module over R . (a) Let A and B be matrices over R of size n –by– s and s –by– t re- spectively. Show that for Œv 1 ;:::;v n Ł 2 M n , Œv 1 ;:::;v n Ł.AB/ D .Œv 1 ;:::;v n ŁA/B: (b) Show that if f v 1 ;:::;v n g is linearly independent subset of M , and Œv 1 ;:::;v n ŁA D 0 , then A D 0 . 8.4.2. Let R be a PID. Adapt the proof of Lemma 8.4.4 to show that any submodule of a free R –module of rank n is free, with rank no more than n . 8.4.3. Prove Lemma 8.4.7 8.4.4. Let R denote the set of infinite–by–infinite, row– and column–finite matrices with complex entries. That is, a matrix is in R if, and only if, each row and each column of the matrix has only finitely many non–zero entries. Show that R is a non-commutative ring with identity, and that R Š R

Suppose we know that N is nitely generated (but not that N is free). Adapt the proof of Theorem 8.4.12 to show that N is free. 8.4.6. Let V and W be free modules over R with ordered bases .v 1 ;v 2 ;:::;v n / and .w 1 ;w 2 ;:::;w m / . Let ' W V ! W be a module homomorphism. Let A D .a i;j / be the m by n matrix whose j th column is the co-ordinate vector of '.v j / with respect to the ordered basis .w 1 ;w 2 ;:::;w m / , '.v j / D X i a i;j w j : Show that for any element P j x j v j of M , '.
