Generalised associated primes and radicals of submodules

Abstract / Description of output

A challenging problem in recent years has been to find a good
description of the radical of a submodule N of a (Noetherian) module M over
a commutative ring, where the radical of N is the intersection of all prime
submodules of M which contain N. In this paper we give a description of the
radical of N in a Noetherian module M which is amenable to computation
either by hand in simple cases or by using a computer algebra system in other
cases, and illustrate this by examples.
