This handbook intends to provide an introduction to module theory and the related part of ring theory. Starting from a basic understanding of linear algebra the theory is presented with complete proofs.
1. Elementary properties of rings 2. Module categories 3. Modules characterized by the Hom-functor 4. Notions derived from simple modules 5. Finiteness conditions in modules 6. Dual finiteness conditions 7. pure sequences and derived notions 8. Modules described by means of projectivity 9. Relations between functors 10. Functor Rings
