The CRing Project: a collaborative open source textbook on commutative algebra
by Shishir Agrawal, et al.
Publisher: CRing Project 2011
Number of pages: 493
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.

Determinantal rings and varieties have been a central topic of commutative algebra and algebraic geometry. The book gives a coherent treatment of the structure of determinantal rings. The approach is via the theory of algebras with straightening law.

This is a survey of lattice point methods for binomial ideals. It is aimed at students and researchers in algebra; it includes many examples, open problems, and elementary introductions to the motivations and background from outside of algebra.

An expository account of the theory of twisted commutative algebras, which can be thought of as a theory for handling commutative algebras with large groups of linear symmetries. Examples include the coordinate rings of determinantal varieties, etc.
