Abstract

It is proved that a module M over a commutative noetherian ring R is injective if ExtRi((R/p)p,M)=0 holds for every i⩾ 1 and every prime ideal p in R. This leads to the following characterization of injective modules: If F is faithfully flat, then a module M such that Hom R(F, M) is injective and ExtRi(F,M)=0 for all i⩾ 1 is injective. A limited version of this characterization is also proved for certain non-noetherian rings.
