On a recent generalization of semiperfect rings
MetadataShow full item record
In a recent paper by Wang and Ding, it was stated that any ring which is generalized supplemented as a left module over itself is semiperfect. The purpose of this note is to show that Wang and Ding's claim is not true and that the class of generalized supplemented rings lies properly between the classes of semilocal and semiperfect rings. Moreover, we propose a corrected version of the theorem by introducing a wider notion of 'local' for submodules. © 2008 Australian Mathematical Society.
