Today’s goal is to partially finish the proof of the generic freeness lemma; the more general case, with finitely generated algebras, will have to wait for a later time though.

Recall that our goal was the following:

Theorem 1 Let ${A}$ be a Noetherian integral domain, ${M}$ a finitely generated ${A}$-module. Then there there exists ${f \in A - \{0\}}$ with ${M_f}$ a free ${A_f}$-module.

As I have already mentioned, a ring is Noetherian if each ideal of ${A}$ is finitely generated. Similarly, a module is Noetherian if every submodule is finitely generated. I will summarize the basic facts below briefly.
