Dedekind's idea was to represent an element r E R by the ideal (r) of its multiples; arbitrary ideals might thus be regarded as ideal elements. The ideal (r) determines the element r only up to multiples by units u of R. Since "unique prime factorization" is only unique up to unit multiples anyway, this is just right for generalizing prime factorization. Dedekind sought and found conditions under which a ring has unique factorization of ideals into prime ideals-he showed that this occurs for the ring of all integers in any number field.

Elementary Definitions is factorial (or a unique factorization domain, sometimes abbreviated UFD) if R is an integral domain and elements of R can be factored uniquely into irreducible elements, the uniqueness being up to factors which are units (this is the same sense in which factorization in Z is unique). Factoriality played an enormous role in the history of commutative algebra, and it will come up many times in this book. Here is an elementary analysis of the condition: If R is factorial, and if al, a2, ...

We usually write Rn for the direct sum of n copies of R, and think of it as a free module with a given basis, namely the set of "coordinate vectors" (1,0, ... ,0), (0,1,0, ... ,0), ... , (0, ... ,0,1). If M is a finitely generated free module, that is M ~ Rn for some n, then the number n is an invariant of M (in the case when R is a field this is just the dimension of M as a vector space). It is called the rank of M. 5. If A, B, and Care R-modules, and a : A -+ B, {3 : B -+ C are homomorphisms, then a pair of homomorphisms is exact if the image of a is equal to ker {3, the kernel of {3.
