Added material to injective object, including a proof of Baer’s criterion for injective modules, and the result that for modules over Noetherian rings, direct sums of injective modules are injective.
Months later…
Thanks, Todd! :-)
I have added some hyperlinks and split off the Bass-Papp result as a separate numbered proposition.
I’ll now copy (not move) this stuff over to the new entry injective module (to parallel projective module.)
Years later…
I have made two little lemmas more explicit:
right adjoints of left exacts preserves injective objects (here);
right adjoints of faithful left exacts transfer enough injectives (here).
Then I made the use of these two lemmas in the statement that $R Mod$ has enough injectives (here) more explicit.
I added a few more examples (in toposes, in topological spaces).
Thanks!
By the way, I discovered that we had parts of the lemmas missing at injective object spelled out at injective module, and vice versa. I have tried to fix that.
And now also in Boolean algebras, mentioning Gleason’s theorem.
Thanks. I have added cross-links with Scott topology.
For a right adjoint to preserve injective objects, it suffices for its left adjoint to be merely left exact (instead of exact; with the same proof). I strengthened the formulation of the lemma accordingly.
Left adjoints are always right exact anyway though.
Oh, of course. Sorry for the noise; the statement now reads: “Given a pair of additive adjoint functors between abelian categories such that the left adjoint L is a left exact functor (thus automatically exact), then the right adjoint preserves injective objects.” Also I added a remark that additivity of the left adjoint is given automatically (being exact, the functor preserves biproducts).
(Not wishing to seem like I’m finding fault) right adjoints also preserve biproducts automatically, since they preserve products.
Right. I think each of the following conditions is sufficient for guaranteeing that a functor $\mathcal{A} \to \mathcal{B}$ preserves biproducts (where $\mathcal{A}$ and $\mathcal{B}$ are categories with a zero object):
For completeness, I have finally created also an entry for injective morphisms (which had long been requested at cofibrantly generated model category)
And I recorded the trivial observation in #12 to additive functor (with a crosslink from injective object).
I added to injective object a couple of observations about internally injective objects in toposes. Somewhat surprisingly (to me), it turns out that external injectivity and internal injectivity actually coincide, in stark contrast to the situation with internally projective objects. I have checked this only for localic toposes, but believe it’s true in more generality; I’ll update the entry when I know.
Thanks!!
I just added some more hyperlinks to keywords.
I added the statement at injective object that right adjoints preserve injectives provided the left adjoint preserves monos which came to my awareness during yesterday’s edit at sufficiently cohesive topos.
