The study of injectivity has frequently been approached from the perspective of relative notions. For a module M, its injectivity domain consists of all modules N such that M is injective relative to N (or N-injective). In [1], the authors view the class of all injectivity domains of modules over a ring R as an ordered structure (the injective profile of the ring R) and investigate the interactions between properties of that injective profile and those of the ring itself.  In [2], the authors explore an alternative perspective: instead of using the injectivity domain of a module M as a mean to gauge the extent of its injectivity, they consider the so-called subinjectivity domain of M. M is N-subinjective means that if for every extension K of N and every homomorphism f : N -> M there exists a homomorphism g : K -> M such that g|_N=f.  In [3], the pure-injectivity profile of a ring is introduced as an analog to the injectivity profile of [1], but instead consider only pure extensions K of N. 

In this talk, we explore the notion of relative pure-subinjectivity. A module M is said to be N-pure-subinjective if every homomorphism from N to M can be extended to a homomorphism from K to M, where K is a pure extension of N. In particular, we give characterizations of right pure hereditary rings, von Neumann regular rings, and semisimple rings, by comparing the pure-subinjectivity domains with the other domains of pure-injectivity and injectivity. We also consider when the pure-subinjectivity domain of a module is closed under pure quotients.

This talk is based on joint work with L\'opez-Permouth, Tolooei and Ungor.
