Unique and Non-Unique Decomposition in Rings

The Fundamental Theorem of Arithmetic states that any integer can be written as the product of prime numbers and units. This decomposition is unique up to order and unit multiples. This project aims to investigate similar decomposition in rings, modules and ideals. Elucidation of the connections between the three sorts of decompositions may  lead to progress in the mysterious area of the structure of modules over a commutative ring based on the well known properties of decompositions of elements and ideals of the ring.
