A Generalization of Integrality
In this paper, we explore a generalization of the notion of
integrality. In particular, we study a nearintegrality condition that is
intermediate between the concepts of integral and almost integral.
This property (referred to as the $\Omega$almost integral
property) is a representative independent specialization of the
standard notion of almost integrality. Some of the properties of
this generalization are explored in this paper, and these properties
are compared with the notion of pseudointegrality introduced by
Anderson, Houston, and Zafrullah. Additionally, it is
shown that the $\Omega$almost integral property serves to
characterize the survival/lying over pairs of Dobbs and Coykendall

On the Endomorphism Rings of Local Cohomology Modules
Let $R$ be a commutative Noetherian ring and $\mathfrak{a}$ a proper ideal
of $R$. We show that if $n:=\operatorname{grade}_R\mathfrak{a}$, then
$\operatorname{End}_R(H^n_\mathfrak{a}(R))\cong \operatorname{Ext}_R^n(H^n_\mathfrak{a}(R),R)$. We also
prove that, for a nonnegative integer $n$ such that
$H^i_\mathfrak{a}(R)=0$ for every $i\neq n$, if $\operatorname{Ext}_R^i(R_z,R)=0$ for
all $i >0$ and $z \in \mathfrak{a}$, then
$\operatorname{End}_R(H^n_\mathfrak{a}(R))$ is a homomorphic
image of $R$, where $R_z$ is the ring of fractions of $R$ with
respect to a multiplicatively closed subset $\{z^j \mid j \geqslant
0 \}$ of $R$. Moreover, if $\operatorname{Hom}_R(R_z,R)=0$ for all $z
\in \mathfrak{a}$,
then $\mu_{H^n_\mathfrak{a}(R)}$ is an isomorphism, where $\mu_{H^n_\mathfrak{a}(R)}$
is the canonical ring homomorphism $R \rightarrow \operatorname{End}_R(H^n_\mathfrak{a}(R))$.

Invariant Theory of Abelian Transvection Groups
Let $G$ be a finite group acting linearly on the vector space $V$ over a field of arbitrary characteristic. The action is called \emph{coregular} if the invariant ring is generated by algebraically independent homogeneous invariants, and the \emph{direct summand property} holds if there is a surjective $k[V]^G$linear map $\pi\colon k[V]\to k[V]^G$. The following ChevalleyShephardTodd type theorem is proved. Suppose $G$ is abelian. Then the action is coregular if and only if $G$ is generated by pseudoreflections and the direct summand property holds.

Root Extensions and Factorization in Affine Domains
An integral domain R is IDPF (Irreducible Divisors of Powers Finite) if, for every nonzero element a in R, the ascending chain of nonassociate irreducible divisors in R of $a^{n}$ stabilizes on a finite set as n ranges over the positive integers, while R is atomic if every nonzero element that is not a unit is a product of a finite number of irreducible elements (atoms). A ring extension S of R is a \emph{root extension} or \emph{radical extension} if for each s in S, there exists a natural number $n(s)$ with $s^{n(s)}$ in R. In this paper it is shown that the ascent and descent of the IDPF property and atomicity for the pair of integral domains $(R,S)$ is governed by the relative sizes of the unit groups $\operatorname{U}(R)$ and $\operatorname{U}(S)$ and whether S is a root extension of R. The following results are deduced from these considerations. An atomic IDPF domain containing a field of characteristic zero is completely integrally closed. An affine domain over a field of characteristic zero is IDPF if and only if it is completely integrally closed. Let R be a Noetherian domain with integral closure S. Suppose the conductor of S into R is nonzero. Then R is IDPF if and only if S is a root extension of R and $\operatorname{U}(S)/\operatorname{U}(R)$ is finite.

On the Maximal Spectrum of Semiprimitive Multiplication Modules
An $R$module $M$ is called a multiplication module if for each
submodule $N$ of $M$, $N=IM$ for some ideal $I$ of $R$. As
defined for a commutative ring $R$, an $R$module $M$ is said to be
semiprimitive if the intersection of maximal submodules of $M$ is
zero. The maximal spectra of a semiprimitive multiplication
module $M$ are studied. The isolated points of $\Max(M)$ are
characterized algebraically. The relationships among the maximal
spectra of $M$, $\Soc(M)$ and $\Ass(M)$ are studied. It is shown
that $\Soc(M)$ is exactly the set of all elements of $M$ which
belongs to every maximal submodule of $M$ except for a finite
number. If $\Max(M)$ is infinite, $\Max(M)$ is a onepoint
compactification of a discrete space if and only if $M$ is Gelfand and for
some maximal submodule $K$, $\Soc(M)$ is the intersection of all
prime submodules of $M$ contained in $K$. When $M$ is a
semiprimitive Gelfand module, we prove that every intersection
of essential submodules of $M$ is an essential submodule if and only if
$\Max(M)$ is an almost discrete space. The set of uniform
submodules of $M$ and the set of minimal submodules of $M$
coincide. $\Ann(\Soc(M))M$ is a summand submodule of $M$ if and only if
$\Max(M)$ is the union of two disjoint open subspaces $A$ and
$N$, where $A$ is almost discrete and $N$ is dense in itself. In
particular, $\Ann(\Soc(M))=\Ann(M)$ if and only if $\Max(M)$ is almost
discrete.

Condensed and Strongly Condensed Domains
This paper deals with the concepts of condensed and strongly condensed
domains. By definition, an integral domain $R$ is condensed
(resp. strongly condensed) if each pair of ideals $I$ and $J$ of $R$,
$IJ=\{ab/a \in I, b \in J\}$ (resp. $IJ=aJ$ for some $a \in I$ or
$IJ=Ib$ for some $b \in J$). More precisely, we investigate the
ideal theory of condensed and strongly condensed domains in
Noetherianlike settings, especially Mori and strong Mori domains and
the transfer of these concepts to pullbacks.

Krull Dimension of Injective Modules Over Commutative Noetherian Rings
Let $R$ be a commutative Noetherian
integral domain with field of fractions $Q$. Generalizing a
fortyyearold theorem of E. Matlis, we prove that the $R$module
$Q/R$ (or $Q$) has Krull dimension if and only if $R$ is semilocal
and onedimensional. Moreover, if $X$ is an injective module over
a commutative Noetherian ring such that $X$ has Krull dimension,
then the Krull dimension of $X$ is at most $1$.

Localization of the HasseSchmidt Algebra
The behaviour of the HasseSchmidt algebra of higher derivations under
localization is studied using Andr\'e cohomology. Elementary
techniques are used to describe the HasseSchmidt derivations on
certain monomial rings in the nonmodular case. The localization
conjecture is then verified for all monomial rings.

Condensed Domains
An integral domain $D$ with identity is condensed (resp., strongly
condensed) if for each pair of ideals $I$, $J$ of $D$, $IJ=\{ij; i\in I,
j\in J\}$ (resp., $IJ=iJ$ for some $i\in I$ or $IJ =Ij$ for some
$j\in J$). We show that for a Noetherian domain $D$, $D$ is condensed
if and only if $\Pic(D)=0$ and $D$ is locally condensed, while a local
domain is strongly condensed if and only if it has the twogenerator
property. An integrally closed domain $D$ is strongly condensed if and
only if $D$ is a B\'{e}zout generalized Dedekind domain with at most one
maximal ideal of height greater than one. We give a number of
equivalencies for a local domain with finite integral closure to be
strongly condensed. Finally, we show that for a field extension
$k\subseteq K$, the domain $D=k+XK[[X]]$ is condensed if and only if
$[K:k]\leq 2$ or $[K:k]=3$ and each degreetwo polynomial in $k[X]$
splits over $k$, while $D$ is strongly condensed if and only if $[K:k]
\leq 2$.

The Transfer in the Invariant Theory of Modular Permutation Representations II

representations of finite groups is generated by the transfers of
special monomials. This leads to a description of the image of the

these ideals.

On the Prime Ideals in a Commutative Ring
If $n$ and $m$ are positive integers, necessary and sufficient
conditions are given for the existence of a finite commutative ring $R$
with exactly $n$ elements and exactly $m$ prime ideals. Next,
assuming the Axiom of Choice, it is proved that if $R$ is a
commutative ring and $T$ is a commutative $R$algebra which is
generated by a set $I$, then each chain of prime ideals of $T$ lying
over the same prime ideal of $R$ has at most $2^{I}$ elements. A
polynomial ring example shows that the preceding result is
bestpossible.

$n$generated, $n \geq 2$, then $I$ is $n$generated, and some

NonCohenMacaulay Vector Invariants and a Noether Bound for a Gorenstein Ring of Invariants
This paper contains two essentially independent results in the
invariant theory of finite groups. First we prove that, for any
faithful representation of a nontrivial $p$group over a field of
characteristic $p$, the ring of vector invariants of $m$ copies of
that representation is not \comac\ for $m\geq 3$. In the second
section of the paper we use Poincar\'e series methods to produce upper
bounds for the degrees of the generators for the ring of invariants as
long as that ring is Gorenstein. We prove that, for a finite
nontrivial group $G$ and a faithful representation of dimension $n$
with $n>1$, if the ring of invariants is Gorenstein then the ring is
generated in degrees less than or equal to $n(G1)$. If the ring of
invariants is a hypersurface, the upper bound can be improved to $G$.
