Indecomposable baric algebras. (English) Zbl 0811.17034
The authors introduce the concept of indecomposable baric algebras and prove a Krull-Schmidt theorem for algebras satisfying ascending and descending chain conditions. They analyze some well-known examples of genetic algebras with regard to their indecomposability. Counterexamples are given to three natural statements about indecomposability. [For Part II, same journal 196, 233-242 (1994), see the review below].
