When does the tensor product consist of elementary tensors only?

The question is: Assume that $R$ is a (commutative) ring. Under what conditions on $R$-modules $M,N$ does the tensor product $M\otimes_RN$ consist of elementary tensors only? That is, every ...

If $M$ is a cofree $R$-module and $A,B$ are arbitrary $R$-modules then, is there a left adjoint to the functor $M\otimes_R -$, i.e. is there an endofunctor $F$ on $_R \mathrm{Mod}$ such that ...

Faithfully flat checkable on finitely generated modules

A left $R$-module $_RM$ is said to be faithfully flat if it is flat and, for any $N_R$, $N \otimes_R M = 0$ implies $N = 0$. I would like to show that $M$ is faithfully flat if it is flat and, for any ...

Tensor product of modules preserve injectiveness and surjectiveness or not?

Let $R$ be a commutative ring with identity and $M$ an $R$-module. If $N_1\longrightarrow N_2$ is injective (resp. surjective), is the induced map $M\otimes_R N_1\longrightarrow M\otimes N_2$ ...

Exactness of the Tensor Functor

This might turn out to be a very stupid question, so I apologize in advance, but it is confusing me a little bit. I know in general that if $$M'\rightarrow M\rightarrow M''\rightarrow 0$$ is an exact ...

What kind of object are the tensor products?

Now I'm reading Sze-Tsen Hu's Introduction to Homological Algebra, and it says the restricted direct sum of the natural projections $$\{p_\mu\otimes q_\nu|\mu \in M,\nu\in N\}$$ defines the ...

Does $A\!\leq\!M$ and $B\!\leq\!N$ imply $A\!\otimes_R\!B\hookrightarrow M\!\otimes_R\!N$? (tensor product of modules)

Let $R$ be a commutative unital ring. What would be an example of a $R$-modules $M,N$ with submodules $A,B$, such that there does not exist an embedding of $R$-modules A\!\otimes_R\!B\hookrightarrow ...
Let $R$ be a commutative domain and let $M$ and $N$ be torsion-free $R$ modules. I would like to know whether or not $M\otimes_{R}{N}$ is always non-zero. Now, I know this is true in the finitely ...
