Purely Baer modules and purely Rickart modulesS. Ebrahimi Atani; M. Khoramdel; S. Dolati Pishhesari;
We introduce the notions of purely Baer and purely Rickart modules. We provide several characterizations and investigate properties of each of these concepts. We provide new characterizations of several well-known classes of rings in terms of purely Baer and purely Rickart modules. It is shown that R is a von Numann regular ring iff every right R-module is purely Baer (purely Rickart). Also, we prove R is left semihereditary iff every (finitely generated) free right R-module is purely Baer. Examples illustrating the results are presented.
