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

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 ; ...

Abstract. Let W be a finite dimensional representation of a linearly reductive group G over a field k. Motivated by their work on classical rings of invariants, Levasseur and Stafford asked whether the ring of invariants under G of the symmetric algebra of W has a simple ring of differential operators. In this paper, we show that this is true in prime characteristic. Indeed, if R is a graded subring of a polynomial ring over a perfect field of characteristic p> 0 and if the inclusion R ֒ → S splits, then Dk(R) is a simple ring. In the last section of the paper, we discuss how one might try to deduce the characteristic zero case from this result. As yet, however, this is a subtle problem and the answer to the question of Levasseur and Stafford remains open in characteristic
Local rings of countable CohenMacaulay type
 Proc. Amer. Math. Soc
"... Abstract. We prove (the excellent case of) Schreyer’s conjecture that a local ring with countable CM type has at most a onedimensional singular locus. Furthermore we prove that the localization of a CohenMacaulay local ring of countable CM type is again of countable CM type. Let (R,m) be a (commut ..."

Abstract. We prove (the excellent case of) Schreyer’s conjecture that a local ring with countable CM type has at most a onedimensional singular locus. Furthermore we prove that the localization of a CohenMacaulay local ring of countable CM type is again of countable CM type. Let (R,m) be a (commutative Noetherian) local ring of dimension d. Recall that a nonzero Rmodule M is called maximal Cohen–Macaulay (MCM) provided it is finitely generated and there exists an Mregular sequence {x1,...,xd} in the maximal ideal m. We say that R itself is Cohen– Macaulay (CM) if it is MCM as a module over itself. The CM local rings of finite CMrepresentation type (meaning that they have only finitely many nonisomorphic indecomposable MCM modules) have been carefully studied over the last twenty years. The complete equicharacteristic hypersurfaces of finite CM type have been completely classified ([6], [4], [9]), as have the complete equicharacteristic 2dimensional normal domains ([2]). More generally, it is known that a CM local ring of finite CM type has at most an isolated singularity (proved by Auslander [1] in the complete case, LeuschkeWiegand [10] in the excellent case, and HunekeLeuschke [8] in general). Yoshino’s monograph [15] is a comprehensive source for information about rings of finite CM type. The related property of countable CM type has received much less attention. Buchweitz, Greuel, and Schreyer [4] classified the complete hypersurface singularities of countable CM type, but very little more has been learned since then. The open questions and conjectures in Schreyer’s 1987 survey article [12] have inspired work on both finite and countable CMrepresentation type. For example, Conjecture 7.3(a) states that a CM local ring R has finite CM type if and only if the madic completion has finite CM type; this was recently proved in case R is excellent in [10]. This paper is concerned with another of Schreyer’s conjectures:
The Classification of Homogeneous CohenMacaulay Rings of Finite Representation Type

"...

In this paper we classify the homogeneous CohenMacaulay rings which are of finite representation type, that is, the CohenMacaulay rings which are positively graded and generated in degree 1, with an algebraically closed field of characteristic 0 in degree 0, and which have, up to isomorphisms and shifts in the grading, only a finite number of indecomposable maximal CohenMacaulay modules (MCMmodules). Our main contribution is to show that a homogeneous CohenMacaulay ring of finite representation type and dimension>_ _ 2 must have "minimal multiplicity". Putting this together with previous results of Auslander, AuslanderReiten, BuchweitzGreuelSchreyer, GreuelKn6rrer, and Solberg, we obtain: Theorem. Let R be a homogeneous CohenMacaulay ring. R is of finite representation type, if and only if R is isomorphic to one of the following rings: Arbitrary dimension:

Abstract. Let R be a commutative noetherian local ring, and let X be a resolving subcategory of the category of finitely generated Rmodules. In this paper, we study modules in X by relating them to modules in X which are free on the punctured spectrum of R. We do this by investigating nonfree loci and establishing an analogue of the notion of a level in a triangulated category which has been introduced by Avramov, Buchweitz, Iyengar and Miller. As an application, we prove a result on the dimension of the nonfree locus of a resolving subcategory having only countably many nonisomorphic indecomposable modules in it, which is a generalization of a theorem of Huneke and Leuschke. 1.

Abstract. A few years ago, Huneke and Leuschke proved a theorem which solved a conjecture of Schreyer. It asserts that an excellent CohenMacaulay local ring of countable CohenMacaulay type which is complete or has uncountable residue field has at most a onedimensional singular locus. In this paper, it is verified that the assumption of the excellent property can be removed, and the theorem is considered over an arbitrary local ring. The main purpose of this paper is to prove that the existence of a certain prime ideal and a certain totally reflexive module implies the existence of an uncountably infinite number of isomorphism classes of indecomposable totally reflexive modules. 1.
