abstract = {Rings may well be the most familiar algebraic structure. We all grew up with integers, polynomials, rational and real numbers. These familiar rings do not, however, prepare us for the huge variety of rings and the complexity of ring theory. Rings and their modules should be studied together, and that is what we do in this chapter.We start fromthe definitions of the objects, the appropriate homomorphisms, and the relevant sub-objects. Since both rings and modules will be in play, we need to do this for both structures.Definition 5.1.1A ring is a set R together with two operations},
