Extensions of rational modules

Received30 Mar 2002


For a coalgebra C, the rational functor Rat():CC is a left exact preradical whose associated linear topology is the family C, consisting of all closed and cofinite right ideals of C. It was proved by Radford (1973) that if C is right -Noetherian (which means that every IC is finitely generated), then Rat() is a radical. We show that the converse follows if C1, the second term of the coradical filtration, is right -Noetherian. This is a consequence of our main result on -Noetherian coalgebras which states that the following assertions are equivalent: (i) C is right -Noetherian; (ii) Cn is right -Noetherian for all n; and (iii) C is closed under products and C1 is right -Noetherian. New examples of right -Noetherian coalgebras are provided.
