X )(p) = ht p − minX ∈X {depth Xp} and ψ(f ) = { M ∈ mod R | depth Mp ≥ ht p − f (p) for al l p ∈ Spec R }.
Classification of resolving subcategories and grade consistent functions
One defines Φ, Ψ by Φ(X ) = (IPD(X ), φ(X )) with φ(X )(p) = ht p − minX ∈X {depth Xp} and Ψ(W, f ) = { M ∈ IPD−1(W ) | depth Mp ≥ ht p − f (p) for al l p ∈ Spec R }.
Classification of resolving subcategories and grade consistent functions
Then the fol lowing are equivalent: (1) M belongs to X . (2) depth Mp ≥ minX ∈X {depth Xp} holds for al l p ∈ NF(M ).
Classification of resolving subcategories and grade consistent functions
Let M be an R-module with depth Mp ≥ minX ∈X {depth Xp} for all p ∈ Spec R.
Classification of resolving subcategories and grade consistent functions
We have t = depth M ≥ minX ∈X {depth X }, which gives an R-module X ∈ X with t ≥ depth X =: s.
Classification of resolving subcategories and grade consistent functions
Hence we have depth Ωd (R/p)q ≥ dim Rq ≥ minX ∈X {depth Xq}, and Ωd (R/p) ∈ X by Theorem 4.5.
