RINGS WITH VARIATIONS OF FLAT COVERS
MetadataShow full item record
We introduce flat e-covers of modules and define e-perfect rings as a generalization of perfect rings. We prove that a ring is right perfect if and only if it is semilocal and right e-perfect which generalizes a result due to N. Ding and J. Chen. Moreover, in the light of the fact that a ring R is right perfect if and only if flat covers of any R-module are projective covers, we study on the rings over which flat covers of modules are (generalized) locally projective covers, and obtain some characterizations of (semi) perfect, A-perfect and B-perfect rings.
