- Abstract:
- Let R be a ring with identity and M be a unitary left R-module. The complement of the intersection graph of submodules of M, denoted by Γ(M), is defined to be a graph whose vertices are in one-to-one correspondence with all nontrivial submodules of M and two distinct vertices are adjacent if and only if the corresponding submodules of M have zero intersection. In this paper, we consider the complement of the intersection graph of submodules of a module. We prove that, if Γ(M) is connected and Δ(Γ(M)) < ∞, then M is semisimple, where Δ(Γ(M)) is the maximum degree of Γ(M). We show that, if Γ(M) is a forest, then each component of Γ(M) is a star graph. Moreover, it is proved that, if Γ(M) is a tree, then Γ(M) is isomorphic to a complete graph of order at most two
