The modeltheoretic investigation of modules has led to ideas, techniques and results which are of algebraic interest, irrespective of their modeltheoretic significance. It is these aspects that I will discuss in this article, although I will make some comments on the model theory of modules per se. Our default is that the term “module ” will mean (unital) right module over a ring (associative with 1) R. The category of such modules is denoted ModR, the full subcategory of finitely presented modules will be denoted modR, the
Topological and Geometric aspects of the Ziegler Spectrum

The aim here is to emphasise the topological and geometric structure that the Ziegler spectrum carries and to illustrate how this structure may be used in the analysis of particular examples. There is not space here for me to give a survey of what is known about the Ziegler spectrum so there are a number of topics that I will just mention in order to give some indication of what lies beyond what is discussed here. 1. The Ziegler spectrum 2. Various dimensions 3. These dimensions for artin algebras 4. These dimensions in general 5. Duality 6. The complexity of morphisms in modR 7. The GabrielZariski topology 8. The sheaf of locally definable scalars 1 The Ziegler spectrum 1.1 A reminder on purity and pureinjectives Suppose that M is a submodule of N . Consider a finite system \Sigma n i=1 x i r ij = a j (j = 1; :::m) of Rlinear equations over M : that is, the r ij are in R, the 1 a j are in M and the x i are indeterminates. Suppose that there is a solution b 1 ; ...
