### If $0\rightarrow A\rightarrow B\rightarrow C\rightarrow 0$ is exact and $B\simeq A\oplus C$ as a $R$-module, does this sequence split? [duplicate]

Suppose $0\rightarrow A\rightarrow B\rightarrow C\rightarrow 0$ is a short exact sequence that $B\simeq A\oplus C$ as a $R$-module. Does this short exact sequence split? I think the answer is no, ...

### Splitting of an exact sequence of abelian groups [duplicate]

Let $0\to A\xrightarrow{f} A\oplus B\xrightarrow{g}B\to 0$ be a short exact sequence of (finite) abelian groups, then must it be split exact? If not, can you show me some examples? Thanks!

### Example of a non-splitting exact sequence $0 → M → M\oplus N → N → 0$

Recently, someone stated that every short exact sequence (of, say, modules) of the form $$0 → M → M \oplus N → N → 0$$ splits. I think this is false in general because the arrow $M → M \oplus N$ might ...

### When does a short exact sequence of groups imply it is isomorphic to direct product group [closed]

Suppose that $1\rightarrow N\rightarrow G\rightarrow Q\rightarrow 1$ is a short exact sequence of groups. Then, what is a (necessary and )sufficient condition for $G\cong N\times Q$. In other words, ...

### non-split short exact sequence $A\rightarrow B \rightarrow C$ with $B \cong A\oplus B$

From this problem here, it says that any counter example can not be finitely generated Abelian groups. But I can not find the mistake in the following counter example, I must missed something obvious, ...

### group extension properties: split, central, cocycle or not

Given a group extension $$0 \to A \to E \to G \to 1$$ with $A$ an abelian group, there are several properties to describe this extension: central or non-central extension split or not trivial or ...

### In $R$-Mod Category, example for $B\cong A \oplus C \nRightarrow 0 \to A \to B \to C \to0$ splits.

From splitting lemma, we know in $R$-Mod Category, short exact sequence $0 \to A \stackrel{f}{\rightarrow} B \stackrel{g}{\rightarrow} C \to0$ splits if it satisfies one of the following equivalent ...

### $0\to C'\to C\to C''\to0$ splits if $C\cong C'\oplus C''$ as a chain complex?

Question Given a unitary ring $A$ and an exact sequence $$0\to C'\xrightarrow iC\xrightarrow pC''\to0$$ in the Abelian category of chain complexes over $A$, where $C,C',C''$ are chain complexes of ...

### Does an embedding necessarily make a short exact sequence split?

Suppose we have a short exact sequence. $0 \to A \to B \to C \to 0$. Suppose also that we know there is some embedding $e : C \hookrightarrow B$. Can we conclude that the sequence splits? It seems ...

### Just That Middle Term is a Direct Sum of Extremes Does Not Mean the Sequence is Exact

Does there exist a short exact sequence of the form $$0\to \mathbf Z\to \mathbf Z\oplus (\mathbf Z/n\mathbf Z) \to \mathbf Z/n\mathbf Z\to 0$$ which does not split? (Note: Don Alejo provided a link ...
