Rings with Indecomposable Right Modules Local
Every indecomposable module over a generalized uniserial ring is uniserial, hence local. This motivates one to study rings R satisfying the condition (*): R is a right artinian ring such that every finitely generated, indecomposable right R-module is local. The rings R satisfying (*) have been recently studied by Singh and Al-Bleahed (2004), they have proved some results giving the structure of local right R-modules. In this paper some more structure theorems for local right R-modules are proved. Examples given in this paper show that a rich class of rings satisfying condition (*) can be constructed. Using these results, it is proved that any ring R satisfying (*) is such that mod-R is of finite representation type. It follows from a theorem by Ringel and Tachikawa that any right R-module is a direct sum of local modules. If M is right module over a right artinian ring such that any finitely generated submodule of any homomorphic image of M is a direct sum of local modules, it is proved that it is a direct sum of local modules. This provides an alternative proof for that any right module over a right artinian ring R satisfying (*) is a direct sum of local modules.
