Abstract: The purposes of this paper are to generalize, and to provide a short proof of, I. Swanson's Theorem that each proper ideal in a commutative Noetherian ring has linear growth of primary decompositions, that is, there exists a positive integer such that, for every positive integer , there exists a minimal primary decomposition with for all . The generalization involves a finitely generated -module and several ideals; the short proof is based on the theory of injective -modules.
