Abstract: Rank $ 1$ flat modules are classified for a locally factorial noetherian domain by extending the concept of divisor. A direct sum of rank one flat modules in called completely decomposable. A summand of a completely decomposable module is a direct sum of homogeneous components but need not be completely decomposable.
