A module for which every submodule has a finite system of generators. Equivalent conditions are: Every strictly ascending chain of submodules breaks off after finitely many terms; every non-empty set of submodules ordered by inclusion contains a maximal element. Submodules and quotient modules of a Noetherian module are Noetherian. If, in an exact sequence

and are Noetherian, then so is . A module over a Noetherian ring is Noetherian if and only if it is finitely generated.
