When this is the case, we will often consider A as a subring of S-'A. 1. The part S = A =A follows. The canonical ring homomorphism i : A and only if all s E S are units. If T 81 of all non-zero elements is multiplicatively closed. 2. The ring S- 'A is a field, the fraction field of A , often denoted by K ( A ) . 3. The canonical ring homomorphism i : A --+ K ( A ) is injective. 9 Let A be a domain and f : A -+ K an injective homomorphism with values in a field. There is a natural factorization of f through the fractions field K ( A ) of A.

If it has rank r , consider an isomorphism HomA(A/M, D ) cv r ( A / M ) . It induces isomorphisms HomA(HomA(A/M, D ) , D) 1 : HomA(r(A/M), D) is an isomorphism for all finitely generated A-modules M . cv r(HomA(A/M, D ) ) N ? ( A I M ) . 22 Let k be a field. The dualizing k-modules are the k-vector spaces of rank 1. Since D is dualizing, A I M N HomA(HomA(A/M, D), D ) and r2 = 1. 23 If an artinian ring A is a dualizing A-module, A is a Gorenstein artinian ring. Before we go on, let us prove, by induction on 1(M),the following assertion.

If rk(Mp) = r for all P E Spec(A), we say that M is locally free of rank r . Note that if M is locally free of positive rank r , then Supp(M) = Spec(A). Note furthermore that in this case the Ap/PAp-vector space Mp/PMp has rank r for all P E Spec(A). 35 Let A be a domain and M a finitely generated A-module. Assume that 7-k(AP,pAp)(Mp/pMp)= r for all P E Spec(A). Show that M is locally free of rank r. 36 Let M be a finitely generated module on a Noetherian ring A. Then M is of finite length i f and only if all prime ideals in Supp(M) are maximal.
