# Artinian module

Summary
In mathematics, specifically abstract algebra, an Artinian module is a module that satisfies the descending chain condition on its poset of submodules. They are for modules what Artinian rings are for rings, and a ring is Artinian if and only if it is an Artinian module over itself (with left or right multiplication). Both concepts are named for Emil Artin. In the presence of the axiom of (dependent) choice, the descending chain condition becomes equivalent to the minimum condition, and so that may be used in the definition instead. Like Noetherian modules, Artinian modules enjoy the following heredity property:
• If M is an Artinian R-module, then so is any submodule and any quotient of M. The converse also holds:
• If M is any R-module and N any Artinian submodule such that M/N is Artinian, then M is Artinian. As a consequence, any finitely-generated module over an Artinian ring is Artinian. Since an Artinian ring is also a Noetherian ring, and finitely-generated modules over a N
