What is a semimodule?[edit]

The word redirects here but is not used in the article. Equinox (talk) 06:58, 11 September 2015 (UTC)

In a nutshell, a semimodule is just like a module, except that the underlying abelian group is replaced with an abelian semigroup, so the elements do not necessarily have inverses. For example, the set of natural numbers is a semiring, and it is a semimodule over itself just as any ring is a module over itself. I think an argument could be made to redirect this to "semiring" instead of "module." Rschwieb (talk) 13:59, 11 September 2015 (UTC)

Add a Link Please[edit]

In the second paragraph the term "abelian" should be linked to our relevant article for ease of use. I'm not a skilled editor, so request someone else add this link. Thx — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 23:12, 14 June 2016 (UTC)
