For a coalgebra , the rational functor is a left exact preradical whose associated linear topology is the family , consisting of all closed and cofinite right ideals of . It was proved by Radford (1973) that if is right -Noetherian (which means that every is finitely generated), then is a radical. We show that the
converse follows if , the second term of the coradical
filtration, is right -Noetherian. This is a consequence of our main result on -Noetherian coalgebras which states that the following assertions
are equivalent: (i) is right -Noetherian; (ii) is right -Noetherian for all ; and (iii) is closed under products and is right -Noetherian. New examples of right -Noetherian coalgebras are provided.
