Rational lattices happen all through arithmetic, as in quadratic varieties, sphere packing, Lie idea, and fundamental representations of finite teams. experiences of high-dimensional lattices generally contain quantity conception, linear algebra, codes, combinatorics, and teams. This ebook offers a simple advent to rational lattices and finite teams, and to the deep dating among those theories.

In a decomposition of A as direct sum of indecomposable projective A-modules, the number of occurences of modules isomorphic to P (α) is equal to mα = dimk (V (α)) . (b) If A is free as an O-module, then we have dimO (A) = dimO (P (α)) dimk (V (α)) . α∈P(A) Proof. 16, a decomposition of A as in the statement corresponds to a primitive decomposition of 1A . 1, isomorphic summands correspond to conjugate idempotents. 15). (b) This follows immediately from (a). 4). With our strong assumptions on O , we also have the useful property that an arbitrary (finitely generated) A-module can be covered in a unique minimal fashion by a projective module.

Similar definitions apply for other algebraic structures. It will always be clear in the context if a section or a retraction refers to a set-theoretic map, a group-theoretic map, or a module-theoretic map. We assume the reader is familiar with the notion of exact sequence of groups or modules. The trivial group will be written simply 1 (because groups are written multiplicatively), while the trivial module is written 0 . A short exact sequence of modules j q 0 −→ L −→ M −→ N −→ 0 is said to be split if q has a section, or equivalently if j has a retraction.

Let A be an O-algebra. (a) Let α ∈ P(A) . In a decomposition of A as direct sum of indecomposable projective A-modules, the number of occurences of modules isomorphic to P (α) is equal to mα = dimk (V (α)) . (b) If A is free as an O-module, then we have dimO (A) = dimO (P (α)) dimk (V (α)) . α∈P(A) Proof. 16, a decomposition of A as in the statement corresponds to a primitive decomposition of 1A . 1, isomorphic summands correspond to conjugate idempotents. 15). (b) This follows immediately from (a).
