### Possible examples where the Zero Divisor Conjecture does not hold

Given a ring $R$ with a nonzero zero divisor $x$, it is easy to show that if $M$ is a nonzero $R$-module, then there exists $y\in R-\{0\}$ such that $ym=0$ for some $m\in M-\{0\}$. I was ...

### An inverse limit of a certain inverse system

Let $∆$ be a directed set and $(N_i,f_{ji})_{i∈∆}$ be an inverse system of $R$-modules. Fix $α \in∆$ and consider $(M_i,g_{ji})_{i\in∆}$ as follows: $M_i=N_i$ for $i≥α$, $M_i=0$ for $i<α$, and ...
