We give a projective resolution of a finite dimensional

K-algebra A over its enveloping

algebra Ae = Aop

ÄKA. The description


this resolution is related to decompositions of

the first syzygy module of A as an Ae module.

Resolutions of right A

modules MA may be obtained by tensoring M

over A with this bimodule resoution. We

describe how to obtain such a resolution when M is simple or when M

is given in the form

of a projective presentation. Computations of

ExtnA(Sv,Sw) for

certain classes of algebras A are

made using these resolutions, and applied to obtain results on global
