Title: Injective, Continuous and Extending modules
Abstract: The notion of injectivity plays an important role in Algebra and other areas. Injective modules can be used to describe the ring structures of the underlying rings in many cases. In this talk we will discuss injective modules, applications and their generalizations. Among the generalizations of injective modules, continuous, quasi-continuous and extending modules have been hot topics of research and advancement during the past 2-3 decades. We will discuss these notions, their properties and examples.
