  Abstract:
Let \fraka be an ideal of a commutative Noetherian ring R. For finitely generated R-modules M and N with Supp N ⊆ Supp M, it is shown that cd (\fraka,N) ≤ cd (\fraka,M). Let N be a finitely generated module over a local ring (R,\frak m) such that MinRN = AsshRN. Using the above result and the notion of connectedness dimension, it is proved that cd (\fraka,N) ≥ dimNc(N/\fraka N)−1. Here c(N) denotes the connectedness dimension of the topological space Supp N. Finally, as a consequence of this inequality, two previously known generalizations of Faltings' connectedness theorem are improved.
