Weakly distributive modules. Applications to supplement submodules

In this paper, we define and study weakly distributive modules as a proper generalization of distributive modules.We prove that, weakly distributive supplemented modules are amply supplemented. In a weakly distributive supplemented module every submodule has a unique coclosure. This generalizes a result of Ganesan and Vanaja. We prove that π-projective duo modules, in particular commutative rings, are weakly distributive. Using this result we obtain that in a commutative ring supplements are unique. This generalizes a result of Camillo and Lima. We also prove that any weakly distributive ⊕-supplemented module is quasi-discrete.
