by Shishir Agrawal, et al.

**Publisher**: CRing Project 2011**Number of pages**: 493

**Description**:

The CRing project is an open source textbook on commutative algebra, aiming to comprehensively cover the foundations needed for algebraic geometry at the level of EGA or SGA. It is a work in progress. The present project aims at producing a work suitable for a beginning undergraduate with a background in elementary abstract algebra.
