We define a prime ΓM-module for a Γ-ringM. It is shown that a subsetP ofM is a prime ideal ofM if and only ifP is the annihilator of some prime ΓM-moduleG. s-prime ideals ofM were defined by the first author. We defines-modules ofM, analogous to a concept defined by De Wet for rings. It is shown that a subsetQ ofM is ans-prime ideal ofM if and only ifQ is the annihilator of somes-moduleG ofM. Relationships between prime ΓM-modules and primeR-modules are established, whereR is the right operator ring ofM. Similar results are obtained fors-modules.

A class K of rings has the GADS property (i.e., generalized ADS property) if wheneverX& I& R with X∈ K, then there exists B & R with B ∈ K such that X ⊆ B ⊆ I. Radicals whose semisimple classes have the GADS property are called g-radicals. In this paper, we fully characterize the class of g -radicals. We show that ? is a g-radical if and only if either ? ⊆ I or S? ⊆ I , whereI denotes the class of idempotent rings and S? denotes the semisimple class of ?. It is also shown that the (hereditary) g-radicals form an (atomic) sublattice of the lattice of all radicals.
