The Algebraic Theory of Modular Systems
by Francis Sowerby Macaulay
Publisher: Cambridge University Press 1916
Number of pages: 140
Many of the ideas introduced by F.S. Macaulay in this classic book have developed into central concepts in what has become the branch of mathematics known as Commutative Algebra. Today his name is remembered through the term 'Cohen-Macaulay ring'.

These notes give a rapid review of the rudiments of classical commutative algebra. Some of the main results whose proofs are outlined here are: Hilbert basis theorem, primary decomposition of ideals in noetherian rings, Krull intersection theorem.
This wikibook is intended to give an introduction to commutative algebra; i.e. it shall comprehensively describe the most important commutative algebraic objects. The axiom of choice will be used, although there is no indication that it is true.
