Abstract: A torsion theory partitions the spectrum of the base ring into two sets. Over a Noetherian ring, every suitable partition of the spectrum gives rise to one and only one torsion theory. It is possible to know whether a module is torsion or torsion-free by looking at its associated primes. The example of the polynomial torsion theory is developed.
