Subtyping for F-Bounded Quantifiers and Equirecursive Types (Extended Version)
We give a structural description of right Artinian right nonsingular rings with no right middle class.
On Artinian Rings with Restricted Class of Injectivity Domains
Those rings of type (ii) are either right Artinian or right V –rings and have a unique simple singular right T –module up to isomorphism.
On Artinian Rings with Restricted Class of Injectivity Domains
We also give a complete characterization of non–SI–rings with no right middle class (see Theorem 2.16). A characterization of right Artinian rings with no right middle class was given in Corollary 3.2 of .
On Artinian Rings with Restricted Class of Injectivity Domains
P2) there is a unique simple singular right R–module up to isomorphism are necessary conditions for a nonsemisimple indecomposable right S I –ring R to have no right middle class (see [3, Theorem 2]).
On Artinian Rings with Restricted Class of Injectivity Domains
Likewise, in [3, Proposition 6], it is shown that right Artinian right S I –rings with homogeneous right socle anda unique local module of length two up tp isomorphism must have no right middle class.
On Artinian Rings with Restricted Class of Injectivity Domains
We also prove that certain conditions on D ′ characterizes these triangular rings to have no right middle class which yields a general characterization for right nonsingular right Artinian rings to have no right middle class (Theorem 2.5).

As a generalization of right V –rings, right GV –rings were introduced by Ramamurthi and Rangaswamy in . A ring is called right GV if every simple singular module is injective, or equivalently, every simple module is either injective or pro jective.
On Artinian Rings with Restricted Class of Injectivity Domains
If R is a QF –ring, then it is not right S I (because a nonsemisimple right S I –ring with no right midd le class cannot be right self–injective), and so, by Theorem 2.16, R ∼= Mn (A) for some local right Artinian ring whose Jacobson radical properly contains no nonzero ideals.
On Artinian Rings with Restricted Class of Injectivity Domains
However, there are Artinian rings with no right (and left) midd le class which are poor as a right (and left) module although they have right (or left) composition length two (see Example 2.20).
