Unformatted text preview: 392 8. MODULES the ring elements a i are nonzero and noninvertible, and a i divides a j for i j ; Show that for k 1 , p k 1 M=p k M .R=.p// m k .p/ , where m k .p/ is the number of a i that are divisible by p k . Conclude that the numers m k .p/ depend only on M and not on the choice of the direct sum decomposition M D A 1 A 2 A s . (c) Show that the numbers m k .p/ , as p and k vary, determine s and also determine the ring elements a i up to associates. Conclude that the invariant factor decomposition is unique. 8.5.8. Let M be a finitely generated torsion module over a PID R . Let m be a period of M with irreducible factorization m D p m 1 1 p m s s . Show that for each i and for all x 2 MOEp i , p m i i x D . 8.6. Rational canonical form In this section we apply the theory of finitely generated modules of a principal ideal domain to study the structure of a linear transformation of a finite dimensional vector space....
