Summary: CLASS AND RANK OF DIFFERENTIAL MODULES

Abstract. A differential module is a module equipped with a square-zero
endomorphism. This structure underpins complexes of modules over rings,
as well as differential graded modules over graded rings. We establish lower
bounds on the class--a substitute for the length of a free complex--and on the
rank of a differential module in terms of invariants of its homology. These re-
sults specialize to basic theorems in commutative algebra and algebraic topol-
ogy. One instance is a common generalization of the equicharacteristic case of
the New Intersection Theorem of Hochster, Peskine, P. Roberts, and Szpiro,
concerning complexes over commutative noetherian rings, and of a theorem of
G. Carlsson on differential graded modules over graded polynomial rings.
