Algebra a module?

If an Algebra is a vector space over K, doesn’t this make it a K-module? If so, does it have structure which precludes us from using isomorphism theorems for modules once we have established algebra homomorphisms?

  1. Yes!
    An algebra is a K-module as well as a ring, so you are free to use isomorphism theorems for modules and rings to get isomorphism theorems for algebras. I said more about this in lecture 3.
