Abstract: From the Fundamental Theorem of Abelian Groups we can deduce that every finite length indecomposable module over \mathbb{Z} is uniquely determined by its composition factors set, meaning that if we have two indecomposable finite length abelian groups N^1 and N^2 with the same length and, if for any 0\subseteq N_{1}^j\subseteq ... \subseteq N_{r}^j=N^j composition series for N^j, j=1,2, we get \{N_{i+1}^1/N_{i}^1\}_{i=0}^{r-1}=\{N_{i+1}^2/N_{i}^2\}_{i=0}^{r-1}, then we must have N^1\cong N^2. In this series of talks , we will study this property about the finite length indecomposable abelian groups in a more general way. We will start by focusing on the class of commutative rings R which satisfy it, showing that it contains the class of Dedekind Domains. If time permits, we will see that if R is any unital ring (not necessarily commutative) satisfying this property, which we will call “Property \mathfrak{X}“, and I is an ideal of R, then also R/I satisfies it. This work is part of my ongoing master thesis “Some methods of Category Theory in the Representation Theory of Artin Algebras”.
