Prove that R is a finitely generated S-module

  1. Feb 10, 2007 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    Let S be a subring of the ring R=[tex]\mathbb{C}[t][/tex] which properly contains [tex]\mathbb{C}[/tex]. Prove that R is a finitely generated S-module.

    3. The attempt at a solution

    Not sure where to start.

    Does it have to do with presentation matrices?

    I would say it has a lot to do with the DEFINITION of "finitely presented module"! How is that defined?

    I got it. It seemed a lot harder than it is.
