A characterization of Auslander category


Abstract: In this paper, we discuss the Bass class and the Auslander class with respect to a semidualizing module over an associative ring. Let _SC_R be a semidualizing module, we proved that the Bass class B_C (R) is a right orthogonal subcategory of some right R-module; and that the Auslander class A_C (S) is a left orthogonal subcategory of the character module of some left S-module. As an application, we introduce the notion of the minimal semidualizing module, and get a one to one correspondence between the isomorphism classes of minimal semidualizing R-modules and maximal classes among coresolving preenvelope classes of Mod R with the same Ext-projective generators in gen^* R.
